About the Winemaker:
Tamber Bey Winemaker Andy Jones was born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming. His original career was in the restaurant business. His early restaurant experience led him to San Francisco and the California Culinary Academy, where he majored in hospitality and restaurant management. Following graduation, Andy helped open Solage Resort in Calistoga, where he was the assistant food and beverage manager.  While he was there, he met Winemaker Thomas Brown, and ultimately went to work for Thomas in 2008 at his Black Sears facility in Angwin. Thomas was Tamber Bey’s founding winemaker and is now consulting winemaker. Andy joined the winemaking team at Sundance Ranch as assistant winemaker to Thomas when the facility opened in 2013. He was promoted to director of winery operations in 2015 and to winemaker in 2017.
