Brian Mox, winemaker
Brian Mox has been the winemaker for Darms Lane Vineyard since 2003.  Born and raised in the Midwest, Brian had family roots in farming and food production. He embarked upon Electrical Engineering studies at MIT, but was drawn to hands-on pursuits and the culinary arts. Taking time off from MIT, he worked in the restaurant industry in Seattle, where he acquired an interest in wine.
Realizing that wine related to his interests in food, science, history and agriculture, he began investigating the field of winemaking. He completed his first harvest in 1989 with Hargrave Vineyards on Long Island while completing his Chemistry degree at MIT. Arriving in Napa in 1991, Brian worked in the cellar at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and then went on to be Oenologist at Pine Ridge Winery. In 1996 he returned to the academic world to begin graduate work in the Department of Viticulture and Oenology at U.C. Davis. His interest was in the formation of pigments and tannins in grapes and wine, and he soon turned to full-time commercial winemaking.
In 1999, Brian helped set up Laird Family Estates as the facility’s first winemaker. This is where we were first introduced to Brian. In 2001, Brian moved to Etude Wines, where he worked with industry leading winemaker Tony Soter, to focus on his passion for Pinot Noir and the Bordeaux reds, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. In addition to making wine for us, Brian is also the winemaker at Lewis Cellars.
