Siduri Wines – with Adam Lee


Adam Lee and Dianna Novy left their native Texas and moved to the Sonoma County wine country. They spent years working at small, family-owned wineries and using any and all free time learning everything they could about growing grapes and making wine.

They made their first Siduri Pinot Noir—named for the Babylonian Goddess of wine—in borrowed facilities, sleeping on cots to monitor the wine around the clock. With the boldness that comes from being new and eager, Adam delivered a bottle of their 1994 Rose Vineyard Pinot Noir to a local hotel after hearing that wine critic Robert Parker was staying there. Parker loved the wine, gave it a great review, and Siduri was off.

Please join us as we talk with Adam about how he got started in the wine business, the founding of Siduri, how he handles fruit from as many as 23 different locations, and of course the recent sale to Jackson Family Wines.
