Our Team

Anthony Hsu - Co-Founder & CEO

Anthony Hsu has been at the helm of Maxville Winery since 2014. Anthony was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and also spent time during his early years in Taiwan, his birth country. After graduating from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University, Anthony spent over 30 years in international finance focused on the creation of new business ventures. He has brought this entrepreneurial mindset to Maxville, and under his guidance and vision, extensive renovations have been made to the winery and grounds, resulting in the stunning architecture and modern art of the winery's grand entrance and gardens.

It was Anthony's vision that created the Maxville name and wine portfolio. Maxville's iconic bear logo comes from Anthony's inspiration, reflecting the winery's deep connection to California's early history while capturing the power and quiet strength of Maxville's wine style. Anthony is committed to establishing the Chiles Valley AVA of Napa Valley as truly unique as well as on par with the other world class AVA's in the valley, and he has spearheaded significant changes in the Maxville Estate vineyard to better capture Chiles Valley's distinctive terroir.

On a more personal note, Anthony's passion for cooking and sharing with guests is reflected in the winery's hospitality. Fluent in three languages and two regional dialects of Chinese, Anthony loves international foods, bringing a distinct flair to Maxville's food and wine pairings.
