HARRISON, N.Y., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pasternak Wine Imports is proud to announce a U.S. partnership effective March 1, 2016 to oversee the distribution and marketing of Thomas George Estates, a Russian River Valley based winery dedicated to the production of world-class, estate-grown, and small lot wines.  Established through the father and son team of Thomas and Jeremy Baker, the Thomas George Estates portfolio consists of two independent brands: Thomas George Estate wines dedicated to estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley AVA, and Noble Tree Wines comprised of estate-grown Sonoma County grapes with an emphasis on Cabernet Sauvignon.

"We are very excited about the new partnership with Thomas George Estates," explains Stephen Brauer President and CEO of Pasternak Wine Imports. "Thomas George Estates fits perfectly with our portfolio of estate wines. The Baker family and their talented team are focused on producing the purest reflection of the terroir with wines that express elegance, personality, and drinkability.  For Thomas George Estates, small is beautiful, and their passion for the land is reflected in their estate and single-vineyard wines."  Thomas George Estates offers a range of single vineyard wines including Baker Ridge, Cresta Ridge, Starr Ridge and Sons & Daughters Ranch but they also vinify by individual lot-specific sites which allows them to express the color and diversity within their exceptional land holdings.

Thomas George Estates is a relative newcomer to the Russian River Valley, but their winery and their vineyards are steeped in local history.  They own over 137 acres of planted land, including properties once owned by Davis Bynum and Gary Farrell, both known to be pioneers in the Russian River Valley.  "Offering distribution rights of Thomas George Estates was a decision we did not take lightly, but we are confident we found the right partner in Pasternak," commented Jeremy Baker, President of Thomas George Estates. "Pasternak not only understands how to sell some of the most storied and celebrated wines in the world, but they also have a proven track record for brand building.  We are proud to become the Russian River anchor in their U.S. portfolio."
