Tom Myers received his Bachelor of Science, followed by his Masters of Science, in Biological Science/Botany from Michigan State University. His interest in winemaking brought him west, to the University of California at Davis, where he received his Masters in Food Science with an Enology/Viticulture focus. He has been creating wines in the Paso Robles region since 1978 and has created wines for Castoro Cellars since 1990. Voted the 2002 Winemaker of the Year by the California Mid-State Fair, Myers takes an active role in the local wine industry. Castoro Cellars and Tom Myers believe wine should be an integral part of the daily meal, and thus welcome all wine palates, from the most experienced wine drinker to those encountering wine for the first time.
