The Founder & Owner

A native of the Midwest, Chris Zazo has long had a passion for food, wine and the weather. Growing up on a farm that specialized in blending topsoils, coupled with his background as a Chef, Chris understands the inextricable link between the earth, elements, and what it provides. In fact, it was the weather that helped his company, Dallas-based Aspenmark Roofing and Solar, experience tremendous growth over the past 10 years. In 2012 and 2013, Aspenmark was tapped by Inc, 500 as one of the fastest growing businesses in America.

For years Chris has wanted to pay homage to what has helped him achieve personal and professional success, with weather the driving force between Aspenmark and Hailstone Vineyards. Hailstone Vineyards is the realization of that dream.

Chris is finally combining his two passions, bringing the same attention to quality and craftsmanship in the wines produced by Hailstone that made Aspenmark a benchmark brand in the roofing business. Outside of Hailstone, Chris works with his charitable foundation, Roof Angels, to help those in need keep a sound roof over their head. In his personal time he is also an avid traveler, golfer, skier, and cook. Hailstone Vineyards is about the atmosphere wine creates: friendship, sophistication, and good conversation. Do your weather dance!
