Thomas Bailey, Southwest Regional Sales Manager
I've been fascinated with the Pacific Northwest my entire life. The unbelievable beauty of this land with its diverse eco-systems, distinct microclimates, and spectacular terrain make for what I believe is THE most amazing part of the USA. After graduating from the University of Texas and spending a few great years working inside the NFL, NBA, and NCAA as an editor/producer, I followed my passions and moved to Washington state specifically to get into the fun and exciting world of wine.
Truly, Washington state is America's fertile crescent and I believe the produce grown here is among the best in the world! And I can’t think of a grape varietal that responds better to the advantageous climactic conditions offered in PNW than Riesling, which makes me extremely happy to be on the Pacific Rim team. It feels great to be a part of a company where the quality of the wine is as important as the sustainable and responsible production techniques used to create it. At Pacific Rim, it truly is practice what you preach.
I love backpacking, skiing, biking - anything outdoors. You'll see me with a smile on face anywhere my friends, my family, good food, good music and good wine are to be found. I’m a HUGE college football fan and as long as the Longhorns are winning, all is good.
