Senses Wines is the dream of three childhood friends. Christopher, Max and Myles partnered with critically acclaimed winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown, to produce world-class wines from renowned vineyards owned by their families. Since founding in 2011, Senses Wines production has grown to include many coveted vineyard sites throughout northern California.
Thomas Rivers Brown was born in Sumter, South Carolina. He attended the University of Virginia, where he majored in English and economics. It was then he found his love for wine. In 1996, Brown moved to Napa to pursue his passion. He was shortly thereafter hired to help in the cellar at Turley Wine Cellars. After three years, Thomas ventured out on his own. He has since made history on several occasions and has become one of the most sought-after winemakers in the Napa Valley.
The Heintz family has owned the ranch for over 100 years. Ideal Goldridge soil, healthy, mature vines, warm days balanced with cool nights and a grower who has been working the land since 1982 all contribute to Robert Parker’s assessment of the vineyard as “…one of the great grand cru Chardonnay sites in California.”
“The Charles Heintz Vineyard is an exceptional site that was planted in 1982 on Goldridge sandy loam. the most layered and intense of the wines in its aromas, the 2020 Chardonnay Charles Heintz Vineyard is expressive with flinty reduction, pineapple, yellow apple, and white flowers, while the palate is consistent and ripe with honeysuckle and pear.”
