Tim Drake

Our winemaker, Tim Drake, began his career in 1999 while living in Washington State. His first job was in the QA department with Ste Michelle Wine Estates at the Columbia Crest facility. He quickly realized he wanted to be on the winemaking side of production, so he transferred to Chateau St. Michelle where he went to work in the cellar. For the next several years, he went from those large scale beginnings to smaller, high-end boutique wineries, making wine alongside some of Washington’s best. Those experiences from the cellar to Cellar Master and on to Assistant Winemaker readied him for the leap to Head Winemaker, and it was around that time that he and his family decided they needed a change.

In 2010, they left Washington State and headed to Texas. Over the last twelve years, Tim has been Head Winemaker or Consulting Winemaker for several Texas wineries. In 2021 we asked him to join our team as the Head Winemaker here at Michael Ros Winery.

Ron Moore

Ron began his wine career in 2006 in California working as a golf professional managing corporate and professional tournaments. At the end of each tournament, they would have a luncheon or dinner and would always have wine with the meal. That led to a 5-year education in food and wine paring. In 2016 Ron began working in wine on a full-time basis. Ron started in the cellar working with the winemaker learning the winemaking process. Ron then moved into the tasting room and in a short time had moved into tasting room management. Ron has been managing tasting rooms full-time for the last 7 years.

Ron has been married to his wife Jan for 41 years. They have two children and four grandchildren. Ron and Jan live in Stonewall with their two dogs Turner & Maks.
