Don Othman

Owner/Winemakers Don and Gwen Othman have been immersed in the Central Coast wine industry for over 30 years with their specialty wine equipment business Bulldog Manufacturing. Don is widely recognized for his creation of The Bulldog Pup in 1986, a gas pressure racking wand that transfers wine from barrels without agitation or oxidation. While originally designed to gently transfer delicate Pinot Noir, “The Pup” has become an indispensable cellar tool for achieving superior clean rackings preserving richness and complexity in high quality barrel aged wines. They continue to manufacture and distribute the Bulldog Pup worldwide today.

Through decades of working alongside some of the business’ most respected winemakers with Bulldog Manufacturing, they learned the wine industry by osmosis. These valued relationships helped lay the foundation from which their individual winemaking style was developed. Life is an evolution and in 1995 Don and Gwen founded Kynsi Winery. Today, proprietors Don and Gwen Othman are joined by their daughter Kala who grew up in the business and son-in-law Michael who share the passion, concentrating on the vision and values on which Kynsi was built. Together, they work very closely to maintain the quality and consistency of the Kynsi portfolio.
