- Notizen des Weinguts: „Doug started his food and wine explorations while traveling with his parents at age 14 in France. His passion for food and wine was enhanced as he worked in restaurants as a cook and server throughout his high school and college years. Coinciding with his graduation from UCSB in 1981, his family purchased the Wine Cask Store in Santa Barbara, which quickly expanded to include a simple bistro. In 1994 Wine Cask became one of 74 restaurants in the world to earn the Wine Spectator Grand Award.
Doug sold Wine Cask in 2007 after deciding to devote all of his energies to wine making. MARGERUM WINE COMPANY was established in 2001. Doug’s philosophy is to return to wine making to its previous form of production – handcrafted and personal.
Margerum Wine Company produces limited quantities of wines made from grapes grown at
the Margerum Estate Vineyard and at top vineyards from Santa Barbara County. Doug
carefully selects the vineyards with meticulous attention to detail in all factors influencing the
ultimate quality of the wines, including pruning, soil, climate, and farming methods. The wines
are made at their state-of-the-art winery located on Industrial Way in Buellton.“
