“Over the last four decades, I’ve walked almost every corner of the Napa Valley striving to understand exactly what makes a great wine. When I founded TOR Wines, the plan was simple. Our wines would come from only the best blocks in great vineyard sites I knew and revered.”
–Tor Kenward

TOR wines focus on single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, cuvées and Bordeaux varietals—each wine is handmade and bottled in a very small quantity. Their secret is to stay out of the way, not to manipulate—preserve a place in time, capture it in a bottle.

The TOR winemaking team has been together since the beginning. Jeff Ames is winemaker, and Tor and Jeff share a simple rule: the vineyard, not a heavy winemaker’s hand, is showcased. Each wine is nurtured to bottle unfiltered and unfined.
