WINEMAKER| Jeff Ames
Jeff took an indirect path to become one of the best winemakers in Napa Valley. Born in Germany, but raised with a Southern upbringing in Alabama, Jeff attended the University of Alabama and received a degree in History. It wasn’t until he was working on his Masters in Education at the University of Memphis and working at a small wine shop to earn extra money, when he caught his first glimpse into the world of wine and was immediately captivated. After putting his degree on hold, he completed his first harvest with Penner-Ash in Oregon and moved to the Napa Valley shortly after. In 2001, he began working as Assistant Winemaker under Thomas Brown on projects including: Schrader, Mayback, Outpost, and TOR. In 2003, he took over as Head Winemaker for TOR, where he continues to make critically acclaimed wines from some of California’s most notable vineyards. In 2005, Jeff realized his dream and launched his own brand, Rudius Wines. Jeff started at Anthem Winery in 2009, and has been making ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc for Anthem ever since.
