Kingston Family Vineyards​
Courtney Kingston is a co-founder of Kingston Family Vineyards in Casablanca Valley, Chile, along with her father Michael and brother Tim. A graduate of Princeton University, she started her career as a consultant for Deloitte’s wine industry practice. There, she began learning the ins and outs of the California wine business.

Later, as a student at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Kingston wrote the vineyard’s original business plan using the Chilean cattle ranch her family had owned and operated since 1906 as the site of the winery. After many discussions about the feasibility of converting the family farm into a vineyard, Kingston Family Vineyards became a reality in 1998. Courtney and her husband Andy have three daughters, and share their time between Portola Valley, California, and Chile’s Casablanca Valley.
