SIDURI, NAMED FOR THE BABYLONIAN GODDESS OF WINE, IS THE RESULT OF OUR FOUNDERS’ MUTUAL LOVE OF GOOD WINE, ESPECIALLY PINOT NOIR—AND A DREAM THAT THEY COULD MAKE GREAT WINES OF THEIR OWN.
Buoyed by that dream, 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.
And it paid off—the first Siduri Wines release, in 1994, was met with great critical success and proved the springboard for a 25-year pursuit great wines from cooler west coast apellations in California and Oregon. This Chardonnay is true to the cool climate style they favor, with aging in neutral oak for roundness and balance and a lithe taut body with sleek lines. A very good inaugural Willamette Valley Chardonnay indeed!
