On a visit from California to Kennewick, Washington to meet his new relatives in 1993, newlywed Eudoro Lucatero offered to join his sister-in-law who was called in to work on the bottling line at Badger Mountain Vineyard winery. Offering to work for about a week, the week turned into 16 years and a career in viticulture. After a month on the bottling line Eudoro was transferred to the vineyard to drive tractor, then at harvest he was put in charge of the harvester. Following his first harvest, Euduoro was offered the job of Vineyard Manger.
Respected for his farming instincts, tireless work ethic, and commitment to organic production, Eudoro works closely with Greg Powers discussing and implementing new and innovative techniques to enhance Badger Mountain Vineyard.
Eudoro lives in Kennewick with his wife and 3 children. In his spare time he enjoys working on cars, volunteering with his wife at their church, and being involved in his kid’s school activities.
