The inside track
Doug grew up in St. Helena and is a lauded local tour guide. He offers unique, private, curated experiences that are not just personal and experiential, but a whole load of fun.
My favourite walk is on Atlas Peak Road, on a hidden, private trail with waterfalls, native Indian markings and wildflowers. The perfect reward at the end of it is a picnic with local food, by a waterhole.
We’re really a small community and we love to throw parties here. One of my all-time favourite events is Festival Napa Valley, a ten-day celebration of classical music, food, wine, celebrities and new friends. Great people-watching too!
With the influence of the Italians here, Bocce Ball is pretty popular and on Fridays, I play on a team called Il Pallino. I promise that it’s a spectator sport!
