Winemaker Kristin Belair
Kristin Belair is the winemaker of Honig Vineyard and Winery, a family-owned winery in the heart of California’s Napa Valley, which uniquely produces two wine varietals: Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. In January of 1998, Kristin joined the Honig team as winemaker, bringing with her more than 17 years of experience in wineries in the Napa Valley. Since that time, she has worked with the family to craft nationally recognized, award-winning wines.

After graduating from University of California at Davis with a Bachelor of Science degree in Enology, Kristin began her winemaking career as a harvest intern at Trefethen Vineyards in 1981. A short stint in Australia and a second harvest at Trefethen led to an Assistant Winemaker position at Lakespring Winery in 1983. In 1985, she was hired as the winemaker for Turnbull Wine Cellars where she stayed until 1997.

Kristin is a member of many wine industry groups, including: the Napa Valley Wine Technical Group; Napa Valley Viticulture Technical Group; American Society of Enology and Viticulture; and California Enological Research Association, as well as several wine tasting groups.

She lives in Napa, California, with her daughter Adrienne, and two cats.
