Take 5: Meg Stone

We are excited to introduce you to the newest member of our Patz & Hall team, Meg Stone. Meg joins us as our Direct to Consumer Administrative Assistant, helping us get the wine into your hands!

We sat down with Meg and asked her to share her thoughts on Patz & Hall, wine and food: 

How were you first introduced to Patz & Hall?
I’ve known of Patz & Hall wines for many years - through friends and family who enjoy fine wines, reading articles about Patz & Hall and discussing wines with folks in the wine business.  One of my family members describes Patz & Hall as a producer of “winemaker’s wines,” the best of the best.

All-time favorite Patz & Hall wine?
The staff recently tasted the 2004 Burnside Vineyard Pinot Noir alongside other library vintages - this stood out as my favorite Patz & Hall wine.

Where is your absolute favorite place to enjoy wine?
I enjoy drinking wines in a casual setting with a bit of food to enhance the wine’s flavors, while in the company of others who also enjoy tasting and savoring a variety of wines.

What is your favorite thing about working at Patz & Hall?
It’s great to work alongside such a bright, vibrant group of individuals at Patz & Hall.  Also, the Sonoma House and its surrounding property is beautiful.  Driving down the long, tree-lined drive and simply enjoying the view from the large office window is such a joy.  A great place!”

Lobstah and Chardonnay

It doesn't get much better than a lobster feed in the vineyard, and that's just what we did last Sunday for our Salon Society members! Each year we invite our members over for a good old fashioned lobster feed, complete with luscious Chardonnays to pair with the lobster, and more corn on the cob and artichokes than you can eat. It's a blast every year, and this year was no exception, with everyone digging in, as you can see in these photos from Donald Patz and our staff at the winery.

Salon Society members, we hope to see you all again next year!  If you're interested in joining our Salon Society to receive invitations to private events like the annual Lobster Feed, discounts on wines, first access to new releases and access to wine club-exclusive wines, learn more and join here.
