Thomas Rivers Brown
One of the country’s top talents, Thomas Rivers Brown was named 2010’s Winemaker of the Year by Food & Wine magazine. He has been in Napa since 1997, where he began his career at Turley Cellars and now makes wines for select premium labels. Over the last decade, Thomas has received more 100-point scores than any other Napa Valley winemaker. He was awarded two 100-point scores from Wine Spectator, the first American winemaker to receive a perfect score. Beyond generosity and roundness in tannins, his wines have few common traits and are very individual, reflecting each vineyard’s unique terroir.
