A Napa Hotel Experience with a wine Story

SENZA's unique backstory began when Kathryn and Craig Hall purchased a quaint bed and breakfast called La Residence in 2006. With a vision of combining their vast experience in winemaking and their new-found position in hospitality, the Hall's set out to give each guest a fuller slice of Napa living. Over the last decade, they have grown SENZA from a country B&B to a luxury hotel - all while maintaining its deep connection to Wine Country and its understated luxury.
Kathryn Hall and her family have been grape growers in Mendocino Country since 1972, growing for area wineries including Fetzer, Parducci, and Beringer. Kathryn managed the family vineyard from 1982 to 1992, and in 1995 she and her husband, Craig, bought their first vineyard in Napa Valley. They have since been producing premium Cabernet Sauvignon under their HALL label. In 2012 the Halls introduced their WALT brand, producing Pinot Noirs from the great vineyards along the west coast from Santa Barbara to Oregon.
This rich history is reflected throughout SENZA Hotel. From the natural light and the indoor/outdoor flow of each room to suites set at the footsteps of the vines and the spaces throughout the grounds that are perfect for a glass of wine and conversation, SENZA will connect you, relax you, and rejuvenate you.

The Art, Soul, and Business of a 21st-Century Winery

SENZA owners, Craig and Kathryn Hall recount their twenty-year climb from amateur winemakers to recipients of an elusive perfect score from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. The Halls launched themselves headfirst into Napa Valley 20 years ago with the purchase of their first vineyard and never looked back.
Their book titled, Perfect Score, tells a vibrant tale of the HALL brand's rise to success in Napa Valley.


With a core based on the WE CARE concept, all of SENZA's cornerstones come from a foundation based on Community, Arts, Responsible Business Practices, and Entrepreneurship - WE CARE that the Hall's have established and instilled. They work to give back across each category but care about people first - those in their community and those on their team.
They believe in responsible entrepreneurship as a catalyst to make a difference for today and the future, and they strive to do the right thing, to follow responsible business practices, and to give back to local communities. They believe in the philosophy of leaving the world better than it was found, a philosophy that they have been putting into action for 50 years. Read more about the Hall's WE CARE concept here.
