David Huebel grew up in Healdsburg, went on a walkabout (a year in Europe), then was drawn back. In his case, it was “the outdoor lifestyle of farming grapes.” The singletrack in nearby Annadel State Park didn’t hurt, either. A dedicated mountain biker, Huebel, 33, now manages family-run Hafner Vineyard. Some of the field staff have been around for 35 years; the patriarch, Dick Hafner, 86, still writes the press releases; and sales are all direct to consumers.
