I NTRODUCI NG A Farmer's Wine. Please enjoy our wines responsibly. © 2015 Tom Gore Vineyards, Geyserville, CA How did you become a grape farmer? I was bor n into a family of grape far mers, so I spent my childhood among the vines and vineyard workers. When did you know that you wanted to spend your life farming the vineyards? I really never envisioned doing anything else. What led to your decision to grow grapes for your own wine label? The care we take growing the grapes really begins the jour ney of the wine. Tom Gore Vineyards allows me to tell this story. What is your favorite part of this new adventure so far? I usually work behind the scenes, so sharing my expertise as a far mer with wine enthusiasts, showing how the work in the field shapes the wine's character in the glass, is a fulfilling experience. What do you want to share with wine lovers? I see the wines as time capsules, expressions of that particular growing season. With every bottle of Tom Gore Vineyards, we share that connection to the earth with our wine drinkers. A DV E RT I S E M E N T Tom Gore: A Farmer's S ry " Farm g is my life's work my gr st joy. As long as I'm ou i , w h my dogs, enjoy g r , I'm happy."
