Enjoy an unpretentious and in depth look at one of Sonoma’s oldest estate grown and family owned wineries in Cline Cellars with New England Regional Manager Doug D’Auria. Cline Cellars has pioneered sustainable farming across California for nearly 40 years and have been regarded as one of the best value driven wineries in the USA. Doug will take us through both traditional and more obscure varietals from Cline’s diverse vineyards in the growing regions of Sonoma Coast, Contra Costa, Lodi and Carneros appellations.
Doug D’Auria has been in the wine Industry for 12 years having sparked his passion for wine in College while studying in Tuscany. He has been with the Cline family for 3 years and has represented dozens of wineries both foreign and domestic. Having worked for small companies and large corporations through his career, he has a keen appreciation for just how special the Cline family is. His approach to wine is passionate yet approachable and most importantly without ego! Doug lives in Connecticut with his wife Kiersten, two daughters Grayson and Ellery and is expecting a baby boy in January.
