Dianna and Adam Lee met about 17 years ago while working in the wine and epicurean departments of Dallas’ Neiman Marcus. They both had a passion for wine, a desire to move to California and make award winning Pinot Noir. Now, 15 years after moving West and launching their winery, Siduri (the Babylonian Goddess of wine,) and sister winery Novy(named for Dianna’s family) in Sonoma Valley, their dream is an award winning reality. They make over 20 wines from grapes sourced throughout California and Oregon.
Keeping true to their Dallas roots, they nurture these grapes from juice to wine in tanks named after some of the greatest Dallas Cowboys to play the game. (I liked the Roger Staubach tank personally.)
On June 11 they venture back to Dallas with a 4 course wine dinner in the Dallas Zoo’s Flamingo Room. The dinner will feature 6 of their wine selections, including their 2006 Siduri Rosella’s Pinot Noir, a wine that received a 92 point rating from the Connoisseurs Guide.
