Tom Gerrie is the Winegrower and second-generation owner of Cristom Vineyards. Tom’s parents, Paul and Eileen Gerrie, founded Cristom Vineyards in 1992.
After graduating from the University of Washington, Tom went on to work harvests at a number of wineries that have inspired and influenced him, including: Bethel Heights Vineyard in the Willamette Valley; Domain Francois Mikulski in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune; and Australia’s Tappanappa Wines in the Adelaide Hills, and Medhurst Wines in the Yarra Valley.
Tom joined the Cristom Vineyards team full time in 2007, was promoted to General Manager of the company in 2010, and became majority owner at the end of 2012. Now as Winegrower of Cristom, Tom is working hard to build on the foundation of the great winegrowing team his father assembled nearly 25 years ago, and inspire innovation to drive the company forward for generations to come.
