Greg approaches the process of making wine with a unique mix of art and science.
With an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry, he initially conducted immunology research at the La Jolla Institute of Allergy and Immunology in southern California. But the calling of the drinkable sciences kept tugging at his heart. He returned home to Napa Valley for the harvest of 1998, and hasn’t looked back since.
Working initially at Beaulieu Vineyards in Napa Valley and Sebastiani Vineyards prior to coming to Don & Sons, he quickly worked his way up the ladder from laboratory assistant to associate winemaker in a matter of a couple of years. In 2009 he became our Red Winemaker, bringing his finely honed blend of science and art to every vintage since.
