Prior to their partnership, both Bill and Chris had numerous years of experience growing grapes in Texas. Since the two established the William Chris Vineyards brand, a beautiful story continues to be written. Not only driven by the passion of our founders but also the community they continue to build as the business grows. Our vineyard partners, winemakers, and team members make Bill and Chris's vision a reality.
Marcy Stellfox grew up in Norman, Oklahoma and graduated from the University of Oklahoma. As the editor of her high school newspaper up until leaving her post as editor for a Hill Country magazine, Marcy has always loved to express her passions through the written word.
She discovered wine in her early 30s while living in Europe falling for the Old World style reds. A wine club member before she became an employee, Marcy brought her love of wine back to the States and was thrilled to discover William Chris right in her backyard. Combining her love of the vine and the Texas Hill Country, Marcy found the perfect place at William Chris.
Today, she’s living the dream. She’s mom to 3 Labrador retrievers and 3 horses and will soon become a full-time Hill Country resident. When she’s not answering the phones at the winery, you’ll find her on horseback roaming the Lone Star back country. Her hobbies include food, wine, reading, running, biking, yoga and pretty much anything outdoors. When she’s not in Texas, she’s hugging trees and hiking mountainsides in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
