Team Members

President & Founder

David Littnero

Growing up in San Diego, David always appreciated the hard workers in the fields surrounding his childhood home. Later on in life he developed an interest in the wine industry, suddenly realizing the depth wine had and the potential wine grown in California could achieve.

Having a strong love for dogs encouraged the direction David and his wife Julia wanted to go with branding their wine venture and Dog House Winery was quickly a reality.

Tasting Room Manager

Julia Littnero

Julia has gained experience in the wine industry for over 25 years. Having married David 17 years ago, they have made a great team building a life and a winery together. Julia manages the Tasting Room and ensures the morale among the team and the dogs on the property are happy.

Lead Winemaker

Stefan T. Geoffroy

Stefan has been "making wine" since he mashed grapes as a 7 year old, accidentally making wine in his back yard while playing with his dog. As he grew up and was searching for a career, he quickly developed a fondness for winemaking (for real this time). 

Stefan has been awarded with the World's Best Winemaker in 2001 and hasn't lost his momentum since. Stefan continues to experiment with unique and exquisite blends ever enhancing the experience we can bring you.

Vineyard Director

Greg Mendoza

Greg grew up among the vines in Napa Valley often playing, and then working along side his dad. After graduating from Cal Poly in 1997 with a major in Agricultural Engineering Technology and a minor in Agricultural Business, Greg managed a large vineyard operation in the Napa Valley.

In charge of all the operations at a vineyard — where grapes are grown, picked and turned into wine — you're responsible for managing people, money and grapes. The first part, people, requires supervising and training employees, including seasonal labor and equipment operators.
