Adam Lee is the founder of Clarice Wine Company. His career in wine began in 1989, working at a retail store in Austin, Texas. After promoting wines to local restaurants, he became a wine distributor sales rep, eventually becoming the Wine Buyer at Neiman Marcus in Dallas. There, he met Dianna Novy.They married and in 1993 moved to California. They started their own brand Siduri Wines, focusing on Pinot Noir. Siduri Wines quickly became one of California’s premier Pinot Noir producers, growing from 107 cases in 1994 to 25,000 cases in 2015.
The Lee family grew as well, with the addition of children Christian, Amber and Truett. In January of 2015, the Lees sold Siduri Wines to Jackson Family Winery. Dianna has gone on to launch her own sparkling wine brand, Flaunt Wine Company, with Adam staying on as winemaker for Siduri.
Adam has now introduced Clarice Wine Company as his own small, heartfelt project, and consults for several wineries including Roar Wine Company, Peake Ranch, Bucher Vineyards, and J. Cage Winery.
