About our Business

Welcome to Wine Country Chef gourmet sauces and marinades.

Chef Harold is currently sharing his knowledge and humor as a demonstration chef at the Culinary Institute of America in St Helena, California. His love for the creative process, boyhood memories of his Zia Assunta's kitchen, and 15 years of culinary experience have led Chef Harold to the creation of Wine Country Chef.

Chef Harold's gourmet sauces and marinades offer the at-home chef the opportunity to capture the essence of the wine country in his or her own kitchen by skillfully blending a sense of time and place with flavor and memory infused with wine country flair.

Buon Appetito!

Our mission at Wine Country Chef is simple: to provide the best products and service to our customers. We take great pride in what we do, our commitment to customer service and in the products we develop.

"When I got your marinade and recipes, I asked my husband to make the Wine Country Chef Burgers . He was excited to, but then he read that you're supposed to make them with ground turkey, and he didn't want to do it anymore. 'Too bland' he said. I persuaded him to give it a try anyway, and the outcome was great—the whole family loved the burgers, including my husband! The next night, he couldn't wait to get back to the BBQ, this time using your marinade on some chicken, and, again, our meal was delicious! Thanks for a great addition to our family dinners." –Susanne and Mike, Calistoga, CA " Mouth Watering" What a wonderful marinade. I purchased a couple of bottles to marinate Tri-tip and chicken at our BBQ event and our guests just loved the flavor. Jennifer, CA
