It is not often you meet a wine making couple in this business but it was a pleasure to meet Adam and Dianna Lee from Siduri and Novy wines. We have enjoyed their high scoring wines immensely in the past.
Adam and Dianna made a stop at the Wine Spectator Grand Tour
event being held at the Venetian Hotel Casino. Prior to the event they held a wine tasting at one of our favorite stops , Double Helix Wine Bar and Boutique in the Palazzo Hotel Casino.
We were attending the Wine Spectator event as well, so we did not need to be coerced to stop at Double Helix , taste some Siduri and Novy wines and speak with Adam and Dianna. They have a great wine making philosophy and work together very well. They feed off each other and make a great wine making  team.
To quote their website , ” By focusing solely on Pinot Noir from the most prestigious vineyard sites in California and Oregon, and by vinifying each barrel separately by lot, clone, yeast and cooper, we champion individuality of place and intensity of flavor in each wine we produce .”
That quote could not be more on target. We spend alot of time in many of the vineyards and
appellations where they get their fruit. These are some of the most prestigious
vineyards to be found from Napa to Santa Barbara County. The Siduri vineyard specific labels read like a who’s who of California vineyard owners and wine growers. It was a pleasure to meet this great team and couple and spend a few minutes talking with them about their past and future plans.
