Wine pioneer Thomas Halby passes

Posted on September 16, 2019

Wine pioneer Thomas Halby has passed away. He truly loved the wine business and all of the wonderful personal relationships he made over the 55 years in it. He helped establish many prestigious wineries from Napa and Sonoma, including Kendall Jackson. He traveled the world sourcing fine wines to bring to the American market by importing wines from Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Chile and South Africa.

He was humble, kind and generous all the way to the end. He will always be the heart and soul of our company and will be dearly missed.
