Chris Kontos – Partner

Chris has spent a lifetime working the wheat fields of Eastern Washington and Oregon, working side by side with his father, Cliff.  Farming dry land wheat means you must wear many hats; mechanic, welder/fabricator, book keeper, business manager, commodity trader and equipment operator, to name a few.  Many of these skills have carried over as valuable assets in the wine business as well.  With the addition of some rudimentary graphic design, marketing concepts and wine club management, he is always looking for creative ways to tell the Kontos Cellars story.

Chris and Kelli were married in 1999 and have 2 daughters, Taylor and Caimbry.
