Tom Eddy Wines
Tom Eddy Wines specializes in less than 1500 cases annually of Tom Eddy hillside Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The entire lineup of labels include Tom Eddy Wines, and Eddy Family Wines (Elodian and TENZ). The Eddy Family Wines are made for earlier consumption. Pinot Noirs include a Tom Eddy Manchester Ridge Pinot Noir and an Elodian Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.
Eddy is a 1974 graduate of University of California at Davis. Before starting the family winery in 1989, he made wine at some of the largest and smallest wineries in California. He currently is also a consultant winemaker and adviser for winery construction for several wineries outside of California. Tom's wife, Kerry, is also a University of California at Davis graduate who contributes to the family business.
A winery on the Eddys' 22 acres in Calistoga is in the planning stages as of early 2011. The wines are sold through a mailing list and online through the winery's website. The 2008 Elodian Monk's Gate Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir won Double Gold at the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
