Our 
Story

A native of the Midwest, Chris Zazo has long had a passion for food, wine and the weather. Growing up on a farm that specialized in blending topsoils, coupled with his background as a Chef, Chris understands the inextricable link between the earth, elements, and what it provides. In fact, it was the weather that helped his company, Dallas-based Aspenmark Roofing and Solar, experience tremendous growth over the past 10 years. In 2012 and 2013, Aspenmark was tapped by Inc, 500 as one of the fastest growing businesses in America.

For years Chris has wanted to pay homage to what has helped him achieve personal and professional success, with weather the driving force between Aspenmark and Hailstone Vineyards. Hailstone Vineyards is the realization of that dream.

Chris' wife Jessica plays an important role in facilitating positive relationships with longterm clients and newfound lovers of Hailstone alike as well as overseeing the operations of bottling, shipping, wine clubs and so much more. Chris and Jessica share their time between Napa and Naples, Florida with their dogs Ainsley and Dutton. They are passionate about contributing to local and national charities - especially those that support rescue animals!
