Thomas Rivers Brown

Winemaker, Stone The Crows

Winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown

One of the country’s top talents, Thomas 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 not just one but ten 100-point Wine Advocate Parker scores to go along with two 100-point awards from Wine Spectator. Beyond generosity and roundness in tannins, his wines have few common traits and are very individual.

Country born: US

Education: Thomas developed an interest in wine while studying History and English at the University of Virginia.

His new education began when winemaker Ehren Jordan at cult Zinfandel producer Turley Wine Cellars gave him an entry-level job in 1997.

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Thomas believes in non-interventionist style that eschews technology and all elements that contribute to sameness. He sums it up with "do as litle as possible.”
