Chris Hooper

It’s not every day that you meet a retired Department of Corrections parole agent in a wine-country tasting room, but in his previous career, Chris mastered the art of connecting with people—and that includes those people who did not, particularly, want to see him. Today, in the tasting room, Chris’s charm is infectious and his capabilities are endless. He and his wife Erika live on 50 acres, in the company of horses and olive trees.
