Santa Margarita, California
Greg O’Quest is a third generation resident of the Central Coast. Planning for a career where he could stay on the Central Coast and enjoy the outdoors, he graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2003 with a B.S. in Fruit Science/Viticulture.
He first worked at Five Rivers Ranch, as a harvest intern, then was hired by French Camp in June 2004, to drive tractors, harvesters, and sample the vineyards. He is now French Camp’s Vineyard Manager.
French Camp’s first block was planted in 1973, and has always focused on sustainable growing, but the SIP Certification process has solidified that effort. Methodologies include cover crop rotation, strategic timing and placement of fertilizer, sulfuric acid stations and lysimeter stations.
In his spare time Greg enjoys the ocean, camping, fishing, and gardening. Currently he lives on the vineyard with his wife Margaux and their three boys.Return to Producers Listing »
