Brown's no-holds-barred approach to making uncompromising wines has resulted in effusive praise from the wine press, including unprecedented double 100 point scores from the Wine Advocate's Robert Parker.

In 2009 Thomas joined the Hestan Vineyards winemaking team, taking over production of the winery's critically acclaimed Hestan Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
