About Me

Owner/Operator - Damon Mushrush

I grew up in Brentwood, TN, a suburb of Nashville, and attended Wake Forest University for Information Systems & Accountancy.  I moved to Atlanta after graduation to work as an accountant for Ernst & Young, but after a year of public accounting, I decided to change it up and start an eBay drop-off business.  

I sold the eBay business after 2 years and moved out here to Napa Valley, California in 2007 to chase my culinary bug and attend the Culinary Institute of America in their Baking & Pastry program. After completing culinary school, I worked as the pastry chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Napa Valley, then started & ran a wholesale pastry business selling to the Dean & Deluca here in St. Helena.  

I got burnt out working the graveyard shift as a baker so decided to switch my focus to the wine industry.  I have been touring guests through Napa & Sonoma since 2010 and absolutely love it.  I enjoy meeting new people, driving them through the beautiful wine country and providing insider information about the best winery & restaurant experiences.   Eat, drink & be merry.
