So, when we decided it was time to hire a Director of Hospitality, we set out to find a unicorn; someone with the heritage, experience, passion and eloquence to be a credible representative of TOR, a brand that requires a deep understanding of Napa history and terroir. We have found all of that and more in Elizabeth, we could think of a better ambassador for all that we are and do.” - Matt Deller MW, TOR COO
