Gordon Larum, Owner and Guide

 
 

There's a great team at Eye on Wine working to ensure you have a one of a kind, and memorable wine experience.

When the time comes for your tour, odds are good you're going to be exploring the valley with Gordy Larum: our Principal Tour Guide, or Timothy Nuss; our hospitality manager and Ace Tour Guide.

Gordy was born and raised in St. Helena. He got his first job at Beringer Vineyards straight out of high school, and that was it. He was hooked on the beauties of the world of wine. Gordy learned wine from the inside out, and has experienced all the levels the wine industry has to offer working for some of the Napa Valley’s largest wineries and some of it’s most precious hidden gems. Gordy runs this one of a kind boutique wine tour company and also co-owns a high-end, small production winery, Witchery.

Here we are thirty plus years after his first wine job and his passion for wine and drive to provide people with the best Napa Valley wine experience possible has not diminished one bit!

Eye on Wine is a way for Gordy and the team to share their love of wine, the Valley, and life with people from all over the world.

As Gordy would say,

“Go Big or Go Home!”

Timothy Nuss: Hospitality Manager and Guide

We are very proud to have Timothy Nuss on board with Eye On Wine.

Like Gordy; Tim was born and raised in the Napa Valley and has been around the world of wine all his life. After spending just a few moments with him you can tell how passionate he is for the area, the vineyards, the wine and the people that make it what it is.

Tim grew up getting his hands dirty up on Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley on the vineyard property his family care took. Since a young age he has been riding around in his father’s ranch truck soaking up wine industry knowledge. At 17 Tim started his first winery job with Robert Craig and has worked at multiple wineries throughout the valley like Vineyard 29 and Ellher’s Estate and he studied wine and viticulture at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Upon returning to Napa in 2009, Tim managed Twenty Rows and Vinoce his family wine labels and tasting room for years and is no stranger to the Eye on Wine community because Twenty Rows and Vinoce were and still are a main attraction for us at Eye on Wine.

Tim’s passion for wine and life are contagious and we’re happy to have his presence on our Team and in our vehicle’s!
