Tony grew up in Sonoma County and graduated from Saint Mary’s College with a degree in Business Management. His first job in wine came in 1998 when he joined the hospitality team at Clos Du Bois Winery, located in Geyserville, California. During this time, he formed great friendships with colleagues that shared his passion for all things food and wine. He shared this enthusiasm with consumers, trade partners and media that would come to learn about Alexander Valley wines.
Tony founded Lombardi Wines in 2013, in a pursuit to honor his family’s rich history of wine, food and tradition. Lombardi Wines crafts small lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast, and are born from Passion, Inspiration and Family.
