In 1997, he began working his way up the Napa Valley wine ladder, starting at Opus One, moving on to Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, and eventually directing winemaking at Cliff Lede, and the former S. Anderson. “My intention is to work with the Rubissow vineyard to create modern wines of complexity and finesse that reflect the unique land they come from,” says Timothy. “It is a great pleasure to work with a family and team who has such a deep respect for the land, for the crafts of winegrowing and winemaking, and for the tradition of excellence created by their forebears.” Timothy’s wines debuted with the stellar 2004. SInce then he has crafted 12 Rubissow vintages and counting." -Winery
"Rubissow Vineyard - a former grassy-ridged 1800s homestead - was purchased in 1983 and planted to vines by the family partnership of George Rubissow and his children, Ariel & Peter Rubissow. From the start, famed winemaker/ consultant André Tchelistcheff was retained to work closely with the Rubissows in the meticulous planning and development of the site. Together, their singular goal focused on producing world-class Bordeaux-style red & wihite wines under the Rubissow~Sargent label. After several successful decades in the market, in 2004 Peter & Ariel dissolved Rubissow~Sargent and founded Rubissow , with new winemaker Timothy Milos at the helm. Their vision was to respect and improve upon the decades of experience and farming wisdom gained in years prior, and to move ahead with modernity and elegance. Today Rubissow wines are enjoyed around the world by wine collectors and enthusiasts who value the estate’s commitment to authentic terroir expression and pure, unfiltered deliciousness.
