Christopher Howell, Winemaker

A confirmed traditionalist, with a New World perspective, Chris believes that winemaking is merely the corollary of grapegrowing. Originality is discovered in the vineyard.

Winery Experience

My perspective has been informed by very many generous friends, colleagues and teachers, both in Napa and from throughout the world, who have shared their experiences generously. I thank them all.

Chris Howell calls himself, Wine-Grower. He has dedicated more than twenty-five years to Cain Vineyard & Winery. His commitment to Cain stems from a realization that one can only learn from one vintage to the next, and that depth of knowledge of a single vineyard takes years to acquire. His focus is on fine wine-growing, following the process from vineyard into the cellar and finally to the glass. There are just two essential prerequisites for doing this, knowing wine and loving wine. In both of these, he remains a perpetual student.
