Tuck Beckstoffer creates world-class wines. As the President of Tuck Beckstoffer Wines, he produces a dozen of Napa Valley’s most exciting and sought-after wines. Pioneers of the Napa Valley grape growing industry, the Beckstoffer family made the vineyards both their lives and their livelihood. When not playing in the vineyards, Tuck was learning about them. 1975 marked his first harvest, and since then Tuck can’t remember a harvest when he hasn’t tasted, smelled or picked fruit straight from the vine.
Extensive vinicultural knowledge drove a desire to learn more about the winemaking process. Tuck studied with winemaking legends in wineries both at home and abroad, which only whetted his appetite to create a wine of his own. After making Tuck Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997 to critical acclaim, collectors and connoisseurs asked for more. That demand continues today.
Outside of the wine business, Tuck is active on other non-profit and federal advisory Boards such as the Department of the Interior’s National Park System Advisory Board and The Rebuild North Bay Foundation. Tuck and the Beckstoffer family have also been responsible for putting more acres into conservation easements than other grape growing family or business in Napa Valley.
Tuck has lived in Napa Valley since 1975. He attended the University of Southern California where he majored in Entrepreneurial Business.
