Hyde Vineyard Estate | Napa, California |

Christopher Hyde has always had a passion for land. After studying Agricultural Business and Viticulture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Farm Management, Chris worked an internship in sales at Wilson Daniels. From there, Christopher joined the Hyde Vineyards team as viticulturist and in 2006, helped his father plant a block of Pinot Noir for their own wine label which had its first vintage in 2009. In 2010, Chris went back out from the family business to work at Merryvale Vineyards and shortly after came back to the family business assuming the role of General Manager at Hyde Vineyards, Director of Viticulture at Hyde Winery, and General Manager of Hyde Estate Winery where he continues to work closely with his father Larry.

In 2015, as Chris received his MBA from Sonoma State University's Wine- Business Executive Master's program, the initiation of construction for the Hyde Estate Winery in Carneros started, which opened its doors in August 2017.

In his free time, Christopher enjoys mountain biking, skiing, wine, and traveling.
