Winemaker

Long Meadow Ranch
Napa Valley, CA

The national ambassador of Long Meadow Ranch’s portfolio of family-run businesses, Chris Hall creates and executes sales programs directed at achieving the family’s goals for serving the nation’s top restaurants and retailers. Chris is responsible for the wine program at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch which features Long Meadow Ranch’s wines as well as other domestic and international wines selected by Chris to complement the restaurant’s American farmhouse cooking.
