Thomas Rivers Brown, Winemaker
We love working with Thomas. He’s true to the land, with an intensely minimalistic approach. Small wonder he also happens to be one of the most sought- after consulting winemakers around.
Thomas began his winemaking career at Turley Wine Cellars in 1997. In 2000, Thomas joined the Schrader Cellars team, and by 2008, had made history as the youngest winemaker to score not just one, but two perfect 100-point ratings from Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate.
By 2010, Food & Wine Magazine had named Thomas "Winemaker of the Year".
Today Thomas crafts wine for a powerhouse portfolio at Outpost Cellars on Howell Mountain, which includes Schrader, Maybach and Aloft.
