The TOR winemaking team has been together since the beginning.
Jeff Ames is winemaker, and we share a simple rule— the vineyard is what we showcase, not a heavy winemaker’s hand. Each wine is nurtured to bottle unfiltered and unfined.
The TOR Family
Tor KenwardVintner and Proprietor
The fanatic. The fantasist. Rules by equal part instinct and equal part logic. A willful revisionist, meticulously blending, over and over until he gets it right.
The James Beard Award winning creative force behind the scenes.
A special breed of winemaker, who learned by doing alongside some of Napa’s greats. A purist, making sure the wines express their site foremost.
Matt Deller MWChief Operating Officer
One of just 52 Masters of Wine in North America, he chose to settle down at TOR, source of his favorite Napa Valley single vineyard expressions, after traveling the world and tasting almost one hundred thousand wines.
