Winemaker 

Matthew Hunter Hall, Winemaker / Director of Sales 


Matt was first introduced to the wine industry in 2007 at Cal Poly, SLO while studying Business Administration.  

What he thought was a simple weekend job in a tasting room ended up sparking a lifelong passion.

After pouring in Paso Robles, adding a Viticulture degree, laboring in Edna Valley, and managing a cellar in South Australia, there was no turning back. 

Hunter DeHaven Winery began in 2011 when Matt returned to his hometown of the SF Bay Area. He started the winery with the goal of producing wines that are unique and rare, while being accessible and (most importantly) enjoyable. 

"It's just wine. But damn its good."
