Christopher Nicolson Red Hook winemaker and Alaskan red salmon fisherman.
Christopher Nicolson is the managing winemaker for the Red Hook Winery but that by itself does not provide enough for him and his family to live in Brooklyn. His main income is earned as a fisherman for the Iliamna Fish Company, a business he owns with two cousins - carrying on a family tradition nearly 100 years old. Like the community supported agriculture (CSA) model, the company sells shares of the seasons catch.
Christopher Nicolson is featured in a June 23, 2020, New York Times article describing his life, and “How Covid-19 Is Threatening Alaska’s Wild Salmon Fishing Season”
