We are delighted to announce a new Californian grower to our range, Rivers-Marie. Thomas Rivers Brown is one of California’s most sought-after winemakers.
He began his winemaking journey when he was hired at Turley Wine Cellars by Ehran Jordan in 1997. Since then, Thomas has become a renowned consultant winemaker for impressive Napa properties such as Schrader Cellars, Maybach, Double Diamond and Outpost to name a few.
We are thrilled to introduce his own project Rivers-Marie, named after Thomas and his wife, Genevieve Marie.
Rivers-Marie produces cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay focusing on a site-driven, restrained style, inspired by his love of Burgundy.
This year we are pleased to offer the following 2018s:
Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir – there is a piece of every single vineyard designate site in this wine.
Summa Vineyard Pinot Noir – from 20 year old vines.
Summa Old Vines Pinot Noir – from 40 year old vines.
Platt Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – Thomas had long admired wines produced from Platt Vineyard and so he jumped at the chance to work with the block (little over an acre and a half) when it became available in 2017.
Thieriot Vineyard Chardonnay – planted in 1990, near to Summa Vineyard.
Thomas also produces a fresh and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Due to the small harvest in 2017, we are sadly unable to offer this wine as part of the current release.
