Winemaker, Rubissow

Winemaker, Timothy Milos

A sixth-generation Bay Area native, Timothy grew up exploring the hills of rural west Marin, building houses in the summer, reading and cooking. In addition to diverse interests in philosophy, history and politics, Timothy pursued Plant Pathology studies at New York???s Cornell University and graduate level research in Enology and Viticulture at California's U.C. Davis. While in New York, Timothy discovered the burgeoning winemaking scene in the Finger Lakes area. Here at last he found an intersection for his passions, science, history and art, all tied to the land, the seasons, and the work of one's hands. Timothy has made wine ever since. In 1997, he began working his way up the Napa Valley wine ladder, starting at Opus One, moving on to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, and eventually directing winemaking at Cliff Lede, and the former S. Anderson. Regarding his work with the Rubissow Family, Timothy says "It is a great pleasure to work with a family and team who has such a deep respect for the land, for the crafts of winegrowing and winemaking, and for the tradition of excellence created by their forebears."
