Direct to Consumer & Hospitality Manager Jim Maguire is a San Francisco native who spent much of his youth on Navy bases across the United States. A graduate of the US Naval Academy, he served as a naval officer during the first Gulf War and then survived a decade-plus stint in Oregon’s Silicon Forest in the high-tech sector. After high-tech, he worked at Saké One in Forest Grove, and at Hawkins Cellars for five years as Tasting Room and General Manager.
Jim joined the Furioso famiglia in March of 2017 as the Direct to Consumer (DTC) Manager. He is responsible for the tasting room, tasting room staff, wine club, compliance, and (soon!) out-of-state distribution.
“Great wine, awesome people, and intelligent conversation – how can I not love my job?! Infusing the feeling of ‘famiglia’ in everything we do is my joy.”
– J. Maguire
