WHO:   Still in high school when the Benziger family moved from White Plains, Chris finished his senior year in wine country. He went on to earn a degree in marketing from the University of San Francisco while spending summers, weekends and every spare moment working at the winery.


Chris officially joined the Benziger Family Winery in 1993 as a Brand Manager. He ran the East Coast sales for over 5 years, and then returned back to California to help transition the winery to biodynamic farming. In addition to his current sales responsibilities for Benziger & Tribute, Chris also oversees the home ranch and its many farm related duties, i.e. shepherding the Benziger flock of sheep and cows, tending to the estate vegetable and fruit trees, and producing the Biodynamic preparations for all our vineyards. He also works closely with the Benziger Wine Club members, hosting the club’s many events.


Chris feels that the only way to communicate the quality of his family’s wines is by walking the vineyards. He embodies the saying…The best impression a winemaker can leave on his wines are his footprints in the vineyards
