40 Under 40 Tastemaker 2018

Jeff Lindsay-Thorsen, 39, Woodinville, WA

Winemaker/Co-owner, W.T. Vintners/Raconteur Wine Company; Wine Director, RN74

Jeff of all trades

Lindsay-Thorsen is a true tastemaker. A winemaker by day, he works by night as wine director of RN74, one of Seattle’s most influential restaurants. He’s led a Burgundy renaissance in his role there and helped popularize Rhône-style wines. At W.T. Vintners, Lindsay-Thorsen’s high-scoring offerings buck the trend of rich, ripe wines that many in the area produce. Instead, his wines focus on elegance, purity, acidity and subtlety. A champion of the Pacific Northwest, he makes a range of terroir-driven, single-vineyard wines from Washington and Oregon.
