Growing up in the mid-west, Tom caught the wine bug while working at a wine store in Indianapolis as he pursed his Chemistry degree at Purdue University. Tom has been making wine in the Napa Valley for fifteen years with world-class wineries such as Charles Krug, St. Supery and Rombauer.
In 2011 Tom decided to take the plunge and build a new winery on the corner of Pine and Brown streets in Old Town Napa. With the help of his wife and two sons, they demolished the old garage and built a small bonded winery capable of making eight barrels of hand-crafted wine each vintage.
In addition to operating Pine and Brown Winery, Tom represents AEB Biochemical and works as a consulting winemaker for other small Napa Valley wineries.
