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, CA.  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. Together, with winemaker Cabell Coursey, they make small lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast. The Pinot Noir is crafted with care from a family of growers in Petaluma, where the Lombardi family has been since 1947.   

In 2015, Tony started a boutique consulting company offering Marketing, Public Relations and Sales services to the benefit of small family wine businesses in need of this expertise. With over 30 years of experience in management, production, sales, marketing and public relations, Lombardi Marketing is a trusted source to the benefit of wineries operating in the luxury wine category. Current and Past Clients include: A.P. VIN, Arista Winery, Blue Farm Wines, Browne Family Wines – CIRQ/CHEV Wines, Bucher Wines, Chenoweth Wines, Cornerstone Cellars, Coursey Graves, Donum Estate, Flanagan Vineyards, Geodesy Wine, J.
