Alumni Vintner Profile
Doug Margerum '81

Doug Margerum started his food and wine explorations at a young age while traveling with his parents in France. Coinciding with his graduation from UCSB in 1981 with a degree in Business Economics, his family purchased WINE CASK—which quickly expanded to include a simple bistro adjacent to wine store. In 1994 the WINE CASK became one of 74 restaurants in the world to earn the Wine Spectator Grand Award. In 2001, Doug launched the Margerum Wine Company. Doug is also the wine maker for Happy Canyon Vineyards and is the consulting wine maker for CENT'ANNI. He now devotes all of his energies to the production and promotion of Margerum wines and to the raising of his two children, Remy (a current UCSB student) and Evan.

Recently Doug has teamed up with the UCSB Alumni Association to feature his Sauvignon Blanc as a part of our inaugural Campus Point Collection. To read more about Doug's wine and see the limited edition Sauvignon Blanc label designed by Hank Pitcher, visit the website by clicking here!
