Lee & Cristina Hudson

Lee & Cristina Hudson

Hudson is a Ranch and Vineyard located in Napa Valley and tends to mean different things to different people. For some Hudson is related to the picturesque landscape. For others, it describes our enigmatic energy. For us, Hudson is the sense of possibility and enthusiasm with which we start every day. Above all, it is a commitment to hard work, growing the highest quality products made with the highest level of intent.

In 1981, Lee Hudson, a native Texan, purchased the Carneros region property and began planting grapes. Working with his wife, Cristina SP Hudson, formerly of Chez Panisse and also a native Texan, they continue to diversify the property.

In addition, to being wine growers and wine makers they grow very large record breaking pumpkins, fruits and vegetables and raise Berkshire heritage pigs, lambs, eggs and produce olive oil and vinegar.

They employ a wonderful year-around staff many whom have been with HUDSON since the early years. Committed to maintaining a productive, conscientious place to work where employees receive health benefits and housing is a priority.

You won't want to miss as Pappas welcomes native Houstonian and wine legend, Lee Hudson, and his wife and native Texan, Cristina SP Hudson. Since the 1980's, Lee has positioned himself as one of Napa's foremost grape growers with a 2,000 acre ranch in eastern Carneros. In addition to being a grape grower, he also makes his own world-class wines, including Chardonnay, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Lee and Cristina both run a fully functioning ranch which includes pigs, sheep, lamb, produce and their own olive oil and vinegar. Pappas Bros. chefs will be using as much product from the ranch as possible to pair with their diverse wine line up. This will truly  be a rare and unique Ranch-to-Table event.
