Steve Brady


Steve Brady is the founder and proprietor of On Q Wines - hand-crafted, ultra-premium wines produced from the finest Napa Valley grapes grown in the Coombsville sub-appellation. 

As a young man growing up in Napa Valley, Steve learned to appreciate and respect the significance of its winemaking history. In addition to his love for wine, Steve’s longtime hobby of playing trumpet soon evolved into a semi-professional endeavor. As his passions for both wine and music grew, Steve realized the creation of great music and the crafting of world-class wine shared a key element: timing.

Trained as a marine engineer and spending many years at sea, Steve’s detail-oriented, meticulous nature coupled with his artistic side enables him to create wines of high quality, elegance and sophistication to be enjoyed by either the discriminating wine connoisseur or the novice wine drinker.

Steve planted his first vineyard in 2003 with help from his three daughters who have been involved in his winemaking endeavors since its inception. He produced his first wine with the 2005 vintage, a Rhone blend that received rave reviews from friends, family and local wine competitions.

In 2010, Steve launched On Q Wines with a very successful vintage that received excellent reviews and high scores. Steve's Consulting Winemaker is Maayan Koschitzky who assists Steve in winemaking decisions and works with him hand-in-hand in the cellar. His wife Lea Brady is the motivation behind Steve's success.

Tim Martin

Brand Director

Tim Martin was bitten by his love for the finer things in life at the tender age of  eleven when he started working for  his Italian grandfather in his  Italian restaurant.  That early passion led to more than twenty incredible years in the restaurant and luxury hotel business.

This passion took him around the country until he found himself in Napa Valley, working with one of  the matriarchs of the Napa Valley, Robin Lail and her new wine project, Lail  Vineyards.  After  helping establish and run the Lail Vineyards for 11 years, Tim launched his own branding/marketing firm, Gauge in 2004, which focuses on branding, business development, marketing strategies for leading companies including Tusk Estates, On Q Wines, Corlis Estates, Somersault Snack Co, Blue Ocean, Casa Piena, Melka Wines, Flanagan Vineyards,  Lail Vineyards, Frias Family, Lail Design Group, and Cultivate System just to name a few.

Augie Kersting

Brand Ambassador

Sommelier Augie Kersting, draws on his wine education, world travels, and Napa Valley upbringing to provide a unique perspective to those fortunate enough to interact with him. Education was a very important factor in Augie’s Napa Valley childhood with his family being affiliated with different aspects of scholastics.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology in 2007 from the University of Dallas where he was a three year letter winner in baseball. After graduation, he moved home to Napa Valley and began to work in the local wine and restaurant industry. Augie gained further wine knowledge and experience at the Michelin rated Étoile restaurant at Domaine Chandon in Yountville.

Through this time, he made various trips to Europe where he studied local viticulture and wine. Augie is a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and will be taking his Level Three Advanced Sommelier exam in the near future. Augie’s lifelong enthusiasm to learn and passion to share his knowledge is his hallmark.

Augie made significant impact in his four years at Meadowood where he was the resident Sommelier and educator at their Wine Experiences Program. We are very fortunate to have Augie with us on Team On Q.
