Steve Leveque, Director of Winemaking
Born and raised in Napa Valley, Steve has earned a reputation for finely crafted wines that reflect the terroir and celebrate the varietal. His sixteen years of winemaking expertise started at Robert Mondavi Winery where he blossomed under the mentorship of Tim Mondavi and served as Winemaker for most of his eleven-year tenure. Steve also served as Executive Vice President and Winemaker of Chalk Hill Estate Winery in Sonoma where he hand-crafted a portfolio of small-lot Bordeaux varietals to critical acclaim. Steve's personal philosophy and professional history demonstrate the reverence for the land and devotion to excellence that HALL embraces.
"My goal is to be true to the fruit, let it express itself purely and fully. Working with such a talented team, with such excellent vineyards and in such an exceptional facility is exciting and inspiring. HALL is truly devoted to making great wine—going about achieving that in all the right ways: Organically farmed vineyards, hand-sorted fruit, gravity-fed tanks, native yeast fermentations." - Steve Leveque
