Harrison Heitz is the third generation to join the family business. His early experience included working crush with the production crew where he learned the basics of winemaking from one of Napa's most well-respected masters of the craft, his father David Heitz.
After graduating from Western Washington University with a degree in Information Systems Management, Harrison worked as an IT consultant in Napa Valley which allowed him to view the winemaking community from a business perspective.
Passionate about his family's Napa Valley legacy, Harrison joined the team at Heitz Wine Cellars in 2012 with the goal of learning every facet of the family business. He is currently focused on sales and marketing and has been instrumental in developing the winery's solar energy plan. He has also become an effective ambassador for the winery during extensive travel through Asia with Wine Institute and Napa Valley Vintners Association.
Harrison lives in Napa with his wife Neena, who is also in the wine industry. They share a love of travel and a keen interest in learning about wines, cuisines and cultures throughout the world.
