After raising their children, Jess and Natan found themselves taking stock. Despite both having successful careers, they began to feel the desire to explore a few interests they’d continually put on the back burner, and ultimately find more opportunities to connect with family and friends.
One such interest was wine and, never ones to shy away from a project, this led them to acquire the vineyard property that became QTR. Another interest was an ongoing passion to brew beer which led to the founding, along with their two sons, of Four Noses Brewing Co. which produces artisan beer in Broomfield, Colorado.
Natan is from Bogota, Colombia and recently retired from a successful career as an architect in New York City. An enthusiastic brewer and baker, it is rare to visit the Bibliowicz’s and not leave with some of Natan’s recently baked wares.
Jessica is a native New Yorker and has devoted her professional career to the world of finance. A Cabernet lover at heart, she’s often on the back deck overlooking the vineyard, sharing a wine from her cellar with visiting friends and family.
Thomas Rivers Brown
Hailing from the great state of South Carolina, Thomas developed an interest in wine while studying at the University of Virginia. A move to the Napa Valley in 1998 launched a now twenty-year career that has made him one of the most sought-after winemakers around.
Thomas crafts wine of exceeding character and excellence. His intuition about and connection to each vineyard site, what it needs, and how to coax from it the very best it has to offer is unrivaled. Known for his non-interventionalist style coupled with his understanding that no two vineyards are the same, Thomas allows each wine he makes to establish its own identity and truly express where it’s from. He is the best of the best and to say we feel lucky he joined our team in 2016 would be an understatement.
Josh Clark was fortunate to grow up in the Napa Valley, spending most of his days in the vineyards with his father who ran the family’s vineyard management company, Clark Vineyard Management. After graduating from Cal Poly with a degree in Ag Engineering and Ag Business, he worked for a large family owned vineyard on the Central Coast before accepting an opportunity to return to the Napa Valley a few years later and take over his father’s company. Josh worked alongside his father for two years before taking over the family business in 2000. Then in 2021, Josh combined forces with Matt Hardin to create Hardin|Clark Vineyard Management. Today, Hardin|Clark is one of the leading vineyard management companies in the Napa Valley, managing some of the area’s most prominent vineyards.
As the 6th generation farmer of his family’s Napa Valley ranches, Matt Hardin has a natural appreciation of the exceptional place that is the Napa Valley. Matt left the area in 2001 to pursue a degree at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and left with an Agricultural Science & Communications degree with a double minor in Wine & Viticulture and Agricultural Business with an Animal Science Concentration. Once graduated, he returned to the region and vineyards where he grew up and found immediate success as a manager at the highly regarding management company, Barbour Vineyard Management. There Matt farmed some of the most renowned vineyards in the Napa Valley including Hundred Acre, Herb Lamb, Bettinelli & Checkerboard. Now as a full-time owner of Hardin-Clark Vineyard Management, Matt and his partner Josh Clark farm over 700 acres in the Napa Valley and employ over 300 people in the agricultural community.
