Mason is responsible for growth, process improvement, and finance/risk management at TVC. His superpower is underwriting unique assets, and his passion is finding overlooked opportunities and seizing them. Though he focuses on the Texas vineyard niche currently, through his career he has worked in residential real estate investing, oil and gas, and environmental consulting. He is a herpetologist by training and is an alumnus of Texas Tech University. He likes to spend his time with his growing family of six and doing anything that is challenging! If Mason is not on the phone, in the spreadsheets, or in the vineyard, you can find him backpacking in the mountains of Colorado, working on his garden with any (or all) of his daughters, or volunteering with his local chapter of Knights of Columbus.
Rusty is our Director of Vineyard Management and is responsible for farming operations, overseeing our block managers, vineyard install, harvest teams, and farming strategy. He is one of the most experienced vineyard managers in Texas, owning and operating the first vineyard management company in Texas, Texas Vineyard Management. He takes wisdom from many places, frequently visiting the west coast to collaborate and glean new ideas to implement here, experimenting with some of the newest technologies and techniques under development by the West Coast powerhouses and universities. Whether it is a vineyard he manages or not, Rusty is always looking to push the Texas vineyard industry forward and share what he has learned in his career with others. When he isn’t in TVC's vineyards, he is spending quality time with his family of seven and farming his own estate vineyard around his home.
Matt is responsible for finance, business development, and acquisitions. He is a graduate of the Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech where he studied Finance with a concentration in Real Estate. Since graduating he has started and grown several businesses in Texas, focusing primarily on real estate investing and acting as a real estate agent and consultant for investors looking to build generational wealth.

When he is not working on one of his businesses or out in the vineyards, Matt is spending time with his wife and their three daughters. He is passionate about homesteading, polylingualism, and reading as much as he can.
