Our Story

Thomas T Thomas Vineyards is a culmination of a dream that began in 1999, on a wine tasting trip to the Burgundy wine region of France.  We began our trip in Dijon traveling south and stopping in each of the of the northern villages to taste their unique expression of Red Burgundies and the great wines of Vosne Romanee and Chambertin.  After we reached Beaune and continuing to travel south, we experienced the region’s White Burgundies and the great wines of Puligny and Chassange- Montrachet. Surrounded by amazing vistas and vineyards as far as the eye could see, I became intoxicated with the thought of recreating the atmosphere that I was experiencing and seriously enjoying. The wines we tasted in each village had its own rich history and tradition, and you could taste that history and tradition in every bottle. The dream was in full bloom by now…the dream of owning a vineyard, winery and making wine.

In 2001, with my dream now my passion, I was able to purchase 40 acres of land in the Anderson Valley, which is located in Mendocino County, California.  We have since developed parts of the property, building a home and in 2008, we planted a three acre parcel to pinot noir and also constructed our winery building.  Our plan was to initially sell our grapes to get a better understanding of our site and to also learn about the wine business.  After selling our grapes for seven years, in 2017 we finally established our own brand and bottled our first Thomas T Thomas Vineyards Reserve Pinot Noir in 2019.  Beginning with the 2018 vintage we will no longer sell our grapes and we will offer four unique pinot noirs for our customers.  Our goal has been and will always be to develop the highest quality wines and to farm all our properties using sustainable practices.  We look forward to you joining with us on our journey as we discover and develop our own family traditions, while creating high quality California Pinot Noir from the beautiful Anderson Valley.
