Eileen Gordon Chiarllo

Eileen Gordon Chiarello is the founder of Barnraiser, a crowd-funding community for good food and healthy living, powered by the millions of Americans who adhere to a health and wellness-focused lifestyle. She and her husband, chef and television host Michael Chiarello, are proprietors of Chiarello Vineyards, a sustainably farmed vineyard in Napa Valley, and acclaimed restaurants, Bottega and Coqueta. They also have Emmy-award winning Food Network shows and a lifestyle brand called NapaStyle. Each business inspires the celebration of everyday rituals around the table—a legacy she believes we must leave to future generations. Chiarello’s passion for story, young people, and sustainability led her to create Dirt-to-Dine Adventure Camps for kids at Connolly Ranch before launching Barnraiser in 2014.

Barnraiser has been featured in Fast Company, Food & Wine, Sunset, National Geographic’s The Plate, Civil Eats, and more.
