About Thomas George Estates
Thomas George Estates was established in 2008 when Tom Baker acquired the Winery and vineyard of Russian River Valley wine pioneer Davis Bynum who produced the first RRV Pinot Noir at the Winery. They are a family owned and operated Winery that produces small lot, limited-production Russian River Valley Estate Single Vineyard and Single Block wines that naturally express the unique characteristics of their varietal, terroir, and vintage. Thomas George Estates has produced our wine from four Russian River Valley Vineyards, Baker Ridge Vineyard, Cresta Ridge Vineyard, Starr Ridge Vineyard, and Sons and Daughters Ranch Vineyard.
After the 2016 vintage, they stopped producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines that blended grapes from their different Estate Vineyards. Starting with the 2017 vintage Thomas George Estates produces only Single Vineyard and Single Block Wines. Their goal is to identify terroir in each of its vineyards that are sufficiently distinctive from other parts of the vineyard, and the vineyard that can produce Single Block Wines.
Thomas George Estates is committed to releasing its wines when it believes that they are approaching the point where they are a valid expression of where they will be at their apex, which means later release dates than are typical. At the Winery they strive to provide unique and memorable Wine Tasting Experiences focused on food and wine pairings and have rejuvenated century-old houses to provide luxury accommodations and the opportunity for our guests to fully immerse themselves in the Thomas George Estates Russian River Valley Wine Experience.
