Hunt Family Wines Featured at the Green Inaugural Ball

Hunt-Country-Vineyards

I almost for­got to men­tion that two of my family’s Hunt Coun­try wines were fea­tured at the Green Inau­gural Ball this year! The farm has been in the fam­ily for seven gen­er­a­tions and my par­ents started the win­ery in 1981. My brother, Jonathan Hunt, is cur­rently the wine­maker and his Dry Ries­ling and Alchemy (a red blend) were fea­tured at the VIP bars at the gala. He and his wife, Car­o­line Boutard Hunt, also pro­duce a spec­tac­u­lar array of organic veg­eta­bles (and chick­ens) that they sell under the name Italy Hill Pro­duce. I got to drink wine from home with long-time friends and col­lab­o­ra­tors includ­ing NASCAR dri­ver and envi­ron­men­tal activist Leilani Munter and her hus­band Craig David­son, Col­orado farmer and 25×25 Board mem­ber, Michael Bow­man (left). And Osprey Orielle Lake (Founder and Pres­i­dent of the Women’s Earth and Cli­mate Cau­cus) and Ann Davlin (Direc­tor of Devel­op­ment for the Car­bon War Room) (right).
