BIOGRAPHY:

David Provost grew up around mining and has always been interested in caves and tunneling. After attending Colorado State University and majoring in construction management, David worked in the mining industry. He moved out to California to assist a contractor who was having trouble digging a tunnel and never left. In 1997, he and his wife founded Bacchus Caves, building subterranean facilities for winemakers in the Napa area. Soon, individuals began calling asking for David's cavemaking expertise and he began building personal caves for individuals.
