This week’s guest on In the Drink is Christophe Hedges. Christophe graduated from the University of San Diego in 2001 with a Business degree and a minor in Theatre Arts. Before joining the family winery, he worked in San Diego as a wine steward for Costco and a wine buyer for La Tavola Kitchen. Christophe’s professional experience extends beyond the wine world: he worked as a stonemason and was a bull rider on the Columbia River Circuit. Christophe returned to the vineyards in late 2001. He purchased land in 2004 and planted his own vineyard in 2005 with his wife, Maggie. Christophe has planted vines for other properties but now devotes his time entirely to Hedges Family Estate. He does not like vacations. This program was brought to you by Visit Napa Valley.
