I love Mexican food and could eat it every day.
I am an only child.
Cats are my favorite animal.

Adrian Ssegura 
Artist Adrian Ssegura (b. April 6, 1985) began his career as a painter at the age of 17 in Cáceres, Spain. Immediately recognized for his talent and craft, Adrian made a choice to professionally develop his individual style by enrolling into the prestigious School of Fine Arts in Seville, Spain. His professional training there allowed him to produce his first collection by the age of 21 that would eventually make Adrian an internationally acclaimed artist.   

His recent collection with Reverie Arts is titled “El Toro y El Hombre” and illustrates a story regarding the cultural phenomenon of bull-fighting in Spain. He depicts a solitary relationship between a man and a bull as each fights for their own right to live in the bull ring. Strength and power embody this series through Adrian’s use of heavy brush strokes and bold color choices. The end results are large textural expressionistic paintings with an intensity that leaves his audience mesmerized.

Take Five: 5 Questions with Tiffany Kenny

How well do YOU know Tiffany Kenny, Director of Consumer Sales & Marketing?

We took five minutes with her and asked her 5 questions. Her answers below!


1) How were you first introduced to Patz & Hall?

I was working for another winery and my manager at the time was recruited to work for Patz & Hall. She loved the company and the wines. Well, within 6 months, she brought me over to Patz & Hall (where I learned all about them) and the rest is history. 

2) Where if your absolute favorite place to enjoy wine?

I love enjoying wine with friends over a delicious meal. Second favorite is drinking with my coworkers in a casual setting – no comparative tastings, no shop talk, just enjoying each other’s company and whatever happens to be in our glass.

3) Most memorable story of working with Patz & Hall?

After 8 ½ years, there are a lot of stories…some aren’t appropriate for this interview, so I’ll keep them within our cone of silence. One of my favorite experiences will always be our very first grower’s luncheon as a company in 2006. We invited all of our growers over to our Napa Salon, ate lunch and drank way too much wine. Everyone had such a great time – some more than others! More recently, our Grand Opening party for the new Sonoma House was a wonderful experience. Seeing friends old and new and introducing them to our new home…it was pretty fantastic!

4) 2 truths and a lie about yourself
I love exercising – pilates, bootcamp, TRX - it’s a major stress reliever for me.
I love to travel with my husband and daughter. 
I am a great golfer.


5) All time favorite Patz & Hall wine?

That’s a tough one… My favorite library wine is either 2003 Burnside Vineyard Pinot Noir or 2004 Alder Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir. My favorite right now is the 2012 Cherry Ridge Chardonnay. So delicious!
