Justin got interested in cycling as a 24-year-old in order to maintain an 18-year-old’s metabolism, but quickly fell in love with long slogs up shoulder-less roads leaning out over distant river valleys. Before DuVine, he taught English and was a coffee roaster, finding the switch from coffee to wine surprisingly similar as both beverages have fanatic devotees. DuVine has given Justin the opportunity to bike, eat, drink, and sleep while making people happy; he considers it a privilege to work in such a positive environment. On tour, he’ll fill in details about castles you pass or the vineyard that’s 300 meters from the top of the col, but also loves to listen.
