All wineries in the TDS Portfolio are family-owned, with a long-term vision dedicated to producing high quality wine. These wines are hand-crafted, typified by outstanding varietal expressions, value and true sense of terroir.

From the sun-kissed hills of Sicily to the gentle slopes of Santa Barbara, these fine wines deliver truthful expressions of their land ... bottle after bottle.

Located in Bolgheri, Italy, Ca’Marcanda is Gaja Family's second property in Tuscany. The name is the Piedmontese term for “house of endless negotiations” , which reflects the many hours that Angelo Gaja spent convincing the property’s previous owners to sell the estate to him. The vineyard's 100% terre bianche (white soils) are ideal for producing long-lived wines. Camarcanda is the winery’s flagship wine and is only produced in exceptional years, guaranteeing quality and assurance to buyers and collectors around the globe.

Tenuta di Lilliano is owned and farmed by the Ruspoli Family. This noble family has a rich history dating back to the Renaissance. The Tenuta  is co-owned by brothers Giulio and Pietro Ruspoli, and managed since 1989 by Giulio. This storied estate is located in the epicenter of the Chianti Classico region, in the town of Castellina in Chianti.


The 3 single vineyards average 300 meters above sea level.  Sangiovese is the principle varietal planted, with a small amount of other indigenous and international grapes. The vineyards of 40 hectares are planted in marly limestone, rich with mineral and stones. Their Sangiovese is the natural result of an amalgamation of a unique microclimate, soils and vineyard positioning.


This exceptional terroir encourages wines of elegance and typicity, which evolve in the bottle and will  express themselves, for years to come.

Paolo E Noemia D'amico Winery was founded in 1985 based on the owners' mutual life experience of elegance and luxury. Paolo was surrounded by wine since an early age while Noemia's family brought their Portuguese wine tradition to Brazil. Once married, the pair took their shared passion for wine to begin this beautiful winery. The Estate is in Lazio, just north of Rome, on a ancient volcanic landscape of Vaiano. The local tufo stones influence the wines and give it a pronounced mineral quality and acidity.

Since 1985, Foxen, a sustainably farmed winery, has drawn grapes from their home ranch. Making small batches of wines from the finest single vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley, Foxen is very vineyard focused.

Winemakers Dick Doré and Bill Wathen adhere to their philosophy of "minimal intervention" in the cellar and focuses  more on what is produced in the vineyards. This approach has generated many acclaimed wines. From their Old Vine Chenin Blanc to single-vineyard Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. It's all about the grapes!

Since 1998, Dave and Emily Miner have grown this dynamic family owned winery into one of the jewels of Napa Valley. Adhering to the philosophy of using only the best grapes, the Miner family have been cultivating  long-term relationships with the finest growers in California. From Garys' Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, to the iconic Stagecoach Vineyards on Vaca Mountains, the Miner team determine to reserve the best for their wines.

This approach results in some classic varietal based wines, such as Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Each wine reflects the Miner commitment to style and quality.
GAJA SPERSS
The primary Gaja Estate is composed of 250 acres located in the Barolo and Barbaresco districts in Piedmont. The winery was founded in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja, and has since continued to be operated by five generations of the Gaja Family. Angelo Gaja, the current owner, is known for his innovation and is credited for bringing Italian wines onto the world stage. In 1961, Angelo decided to only produce his Barolo from estate grown fruit. It was a decision that would change the makeup and character of the wines. In 1988, nearly thirty years after Angelo’s decision to stop using purchased grapes, he bought a thirty acre farm in Serralunga d’Alba.


It was emotional and challenging for Angelo to begin producing Barolo again, now from his own vineyard. He named the estate, Sperrs, which is Piedmontese for “nostalgia.”


Sperrs is now considered one of the finest Barolo wines produced in the last thirty years, and continues to be the benchmark for taste and innovative wine making. Recognized by top journalists and collectors world wide, this thirty acre vineyard continues to produce world class/ long lived Barolo.

With one foot in the present and another in the past, Alberto and Diego Cusumano have created a modern winery with a respect to Sicily's colorful history. Farming in the western part of Sicily and sourcing grapes from various parts of the island, the Cusumano name is synonymous with fine wines and great value. Working with the indigenous grapes of Sicily, Insolia and Nero D'avola, they have created a line of wines that have excited wine lovers around the world. Alta Mora, the latest collection from their Mt. Etna estate, has also become an instant hit!

Nino Franco is the leading and most prestigious producer of D.O.C.G Prosecco from the Valdobbiadene appellation.  Since 1919, the Franco Family have created a style of Prosecco that integrates both freshness and elegance. Hailed by such distinguished magazines from Wine Spectator to Decanter, their Proseccos grace the table of top restaurants and fine hotels around the world.

Under the direction of 3rd generation Winemaker Primo Franco, the winery continues to produce their flagship wine Rustico (N.V.), as well as single-vineyard and vintage-dated wines like Riva di San Floriano, Primo Franco, Grave di Stecca and most recently, Nodi.

The Zemmer Family has been farming their vineyards for three generations.In the shadows of the Dolomites, this land was first cultivated by the Romans, and is influenced by an Alpine and Mediterranean climate.


Zemmer has been farming all of their vineyards sustainably, not following a trend, but a pioneering standard of living. Electricity is produced by solar energy with photovoltic panels installed on winery roofs.


Their single-vineyards surround the town of Cortina, located on hills as high as 3,300 feet above sea level.


The stunning wines produced by Peter Zemmer include Pinot Grigio,Pinot Bianco, Riesling, Pinot Nero and Lagrein. They relect not only the diverse terroir of Alto Adige, but also their maker's love of the land. As Peter himself puts it: "Culture and nature, tradition and innovation, great respect and development. I love and live my environment."
