Creating Wines of Distinction and Personality
Knights Bridge has enlisted the talents of rising star winemaker Jeff Ames. Using fruit from exceptional vineyards, he produces specific wines that reflect each vineyard's terroir and his own sense of style. This allows Knights Bridge to produce wines of great distinction and personality from our estate vineyards and other notable properties.
Having worked under some of the most respected names in winemaking, Jeff has established himself as a winemaker known for crafting wines of distinct style and finesse. Jeff served as assistant winemaker under Thomas Brown, James Johnson of Bisou, Barry Waitte of Tamber Bay, and also worked at Howell Mountain, Schrader Cellars and Maybach Cellars before becoming winemaker for Kenward Family Wines. There, he made wine from fruit purchased from such top vineyards as Howell Mountain, To Kalon, Hudson Vineyard, and Judge Vineyard. Besides making wine for Knights Bridge, Jeff is the owner and winemaker of Ames Wine Company, founded in 2005.
