Doug has lived adjacent to the Big Basin estate since 1980 (long before Bradley acquired it), where he raised two children, many dogs and cats, two parrots and six Arabian endurance horses. Doug started working with Big Basin by supplying manure for our organic vineyard. He next joined the Landini Cavalry & Rodeo, assuming Big Basin’s Italian-made tractor duties and most recently took on responsibility for the tasting room and event business at the winery. Doug’s varied life experiences as architect, construction director, property services director, house builder, and lumberman make him the go-to-guy for what doesn’t seem to fall to anyone else — be it the winery cooling system, parking/patio expansions or equipment maintenance. Sharing his short walks to and from work with the red tail hawks that watch over the vineyard is a quality of life plus. Sharing his life long love of wine and the Big Basin story with customers is, well, the icing on the cake!
