Dr. Crisp practices Pediatric Medicine at OLE Health and Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa Valley.
As both Andre and Allison were adopted at birth, they share a life passion to “help the helpless”.more...
Andre is passionate about owning and operating a variety of businesses and among his businesses, he views Winemaking as his life call.
For Andre, it takes much more than business know-how to create world-class wines. The bringing together of sun, soil, water and the human hand to produce wines of great character also requires leadership of great character. In 2012 Crisp, a former Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur, at age 32, became one of the youngest non-legacy winery principals in the worlds’ premier winemaking community, Napa Valley.
Growing grapes for wine production has been a passion of Andre’s extended family for decades. As a child he learned to love the art of planting a vineyard and picking the grapes at just the right time. Even then he felt a sense of connection to the wine industry. But while a student at Santa Clara University he pursued a career in the tech universe where he honed his managerial style. A decade passed. Andre had promised himself that by age 30 he would swap Silicon Valley for Napa Valley and he kept that promise.
Andre also continues to keep a different kind of promise to himself – to fight extreme poverty and human trafficking in India and beyond. Adopted as an infant in San Francisco with ethic roots from India, Andre never forgets the plight of the impoverished children in India. Instead of accepting wedding gifts for their wedding, he and his wife Allison asked their wedding guests and supporters to consider routing funds to build a home for orphaned children in India. For a portion of their honeymoon they worked with children in the New Delhi slums. “It is our goal that children everywhere are served with adequate acute care and preventative healthcare” said Dr. Allison Crisp.(less)
