As Chairman of Hahn Family Wines, Philip is the second generation Hahn to oversee family winemaking in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County. Philip, whose father Nicolaus founded Hahn, grew up on the family’s SLH vineyard estate where he spent time the way many children in winemaking families do: pruning vines in winter and picking grapes in fall. He went on to pursue a degree in international politics at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and then embarked on an eight-year career on Wall Street where he worked as a hedge fund manager. In 2007, he returned to his roots and joined Hahn Family Wines.
“I’m honored to be able to continue what my parents worked so hard and so long to achieve,” Philip says. “I can’t imagine a better venture in which to invest my time and my energy.”
