One word that describes Dustin Coupe, Sonoma-Cutrer’s Homeplace Coordinator, is magic. Magic is something that Dustin has had a passion for all his life. He was a traveling illusionist and escape artist touring around Las Vegas, Maui, and even Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida. After touring for many years Dustin decided it was time to settle down and returned to his home in Sonoma County.
Being in Sonoma County surrounded by the many beautiful wineries, the allure of the wine industry was appealing to him and he got his start at the Korbel winery where he guided groups on tours and tastings. Dustin then spent more than four years at Francis Ford Coppola where he coordinated and hosted private tours, tastings, and curated events. Dustin’s love for Chardonnay was what first drew him to Sonoma-Cutrer in 2022 and he has been providing his own magical touch to our events, tours, and tastings ever since.
