Tom's family roots in Napa Valley stretch back to the early 1950s when his great-grandmother purchased a historic Oakville vineyard property within the famed To-Kalon Vineyard. 50 years later, Tom began Detert Family Vineyard wines, named after his great-grandmother and made from his family's Oakville vineyard. Over the past 15 years Tom honed his craft working alongside other great winemakers and mentors at Turley Wine Cellars, Joseph Phelps Winery, Robert Mondavi Winery and Revana Family Vineyard. Tom continues to make his family's highly regarded Detert wines.
