About J. Christopher
AboutTim had been elbow-deep in J. Christopher wines for years before working his way up to the chief winemaker role in 2020. A native New Yorker, he sold J. Christopher wines for a high-end East Coast distributor before Erni Loosen lured him west in 2006 with an offer of harvest work and learning opportunities. Over the next couple of years, Tim learned from some of the best, including Cameron Winery in Dundee and Flowers Vineyards & Winery in Sonoma, before joining J. Christopher full time as assistant winemaker.
Tim helped drive every aspect of the estate's winemaking from 2008 until 2015, when he left to focus on his own label, Timothy Malone Wines. Happily, he was enticed back as head winemaker in 2020 and immediately set about raising the J. Christopher bar in every regard.
