John DeGregory

A native Californian, John arrived at the Napa Valley Cooking School in St. Helena in 2000. As soon as he discovered the region’s wines, he put aside his plans for a culinary career, and he has not looked back since. Over the years, John has worked with Beringer, Schramsberg, Clif Family, and Von Strasser wineries, among others. John and his wife Susan live in Calistoga, his home base for bike-packing and ultra-distance cycling trips.
