Hailey was only four years old when her parents founded Hartford Family Winery, and grew up with an eight-acre Zinfandel vineyard in her backyard. Some of her fondest childhood memories are playing hide-and-seek among the century-old vines. She worked harvests in France and Chile before attending Scripps College where she earned a degree in Biology.
Hailey became a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) in 2015, and looks to blend her personal affinities – interacting with people, a love of science and nature, and a fascination with the winemaking process in diverse areas of the world – in her role as winery ambassador, working with the sales and marketing teams. Hailey lives with her husband, Max Murray, in Sonoma County.
