Clarice Wine Company
Clarice Wine Company is a new and truly unique type of winery, combining aspects of an online wine community, a wine education website, and a limited-enrollment wine club.
Adam Lee is the founder of Clarice Wine Company. Adam began working with wine in 1989 at a retail store in Austin, Texas. At the time, he also dabbled in restaurant wine sales, and briefly pulled a bag as a wine distributor sales rep. A few years later, Adam began working as the Wine Buyer at Neiman Marcus in Dallas, and there he met my wife, Dianna Novy. In 1993, they moved to California and, while working in direct sales at various wineries, had started Siduri Wines in 1994. Siduri Wines quickly became known as one of California’s premier Pinot Noir producers and grew from 107 cases in 1994 to 25,000 cases in 2015. During that time, their family grew as well, with the addition of three children; Christian, Amber and Truett. In January of 2015, they sold Siduri Wines to Jackson Family Winery. Since then, Dianna has gone on to launch her own sparkling wine brand, Flaunt (www.flauntwinecompany.com), while Adam stayed on as winemaker for Siduri. In addition to my role at Siduri Wines, he has now introduced Clarice Wine Company as his own small, heartfelt project.
