For Kathryn Hall, art and architecture have long been as much a part of her life as the vineyards that surrounded her growing up in Mendocino wine country. When she and her husband Craig purchased the circa 1885 Bergfeld Winery in St. Helena in 2003, their mission became to create a place as beautiful as the wines that came from it. They installed dozens of original artworks, restored and modernized the nineteenth century architecture, and revitalized the vineyards. Today HALL Winery is truly a place that combines the best of the past and the future.
At tonight’s Opening Night dinner, Kathryn and Craig Hall invite guests to explore their estate and vast contemporary art collection, including works by John Baldessari, Nick Cave, Jaume Plensa, Shahzia Sikander, and more. With the majestic Mayacamas Mountains as their backdrop, guests will be treated to a delicious meal paired with distinctive wines from HALL and WALT.
HALL Napa Valley
Festival Napa Valley board member Kathryn Walt Hall and her husband Craig share a vision of artisan wines alongside expressive art and masterful architecture. HALL Wines blends traditional techniques, modern technology, and a commitment to environmental responsibility to produce exceptional California-style Bordeaux varietals that are an expression of the terroir from which they come. Indeed, sustainability is HALL’s guiding principle, expressed not merely in its LEED® Gold certified facilities or its organic vineyards, but also in its enduring commitment to supporting the arts in Napa Valley and beyond.
