Thomas Rivers Brown

Winemaker

Thomas Rivers Brown was born in Sumter, South Carolina. Thomas graduated from the University of Virginia after studying economics and literature. Post graduation he followed his passion for wine to the Napa Valley where he began his career at Turley Wine Cellars in December 1997. From there, he has gone on to become winemaker for Schrader Cellars, Outpost, Maybach, Pulido-Walker, Revana and many other brands including his own Rivers-Marie and Aston Estate.

Thomas has an unwavering dedication to detail which drives his success in the wine industry. As a winemaker his gift is to make wine that is the purest expression of the site, where the wines are made with minimal intervention. As an expert consultant in the wine industry, he oversees all aspects of vineyard development and management. This is the reason why he made history as the youngest American winemaker to score two perfect 100 point ratings from Robert M. Parker, followed by the only two 100 point ratings from James Laube at the Wine Spectator.

Thomas has continued to receive high scores, many accolades and fame across the world for his wines. He also makes it a priority to give to his community by sponsoring many charitable events as well as mentoring and training the next generation of winemakers.
