Skinner Vineyards, Cold Wine and Adam Smith-Winemaker 8/8
Adam, raised in El Dorado County, has cut a wide swath in winemaking in his journey back to the foothills. He honed his craft in the Willamette Valley in Oregon at Domaine Serene, Bethel Heights Vineyards, and Shea Wine Cellars. He then ventured beyond Oregon to New Zealand’s Craggy Range before being lured to the Sonoma Coast as winemaker for Banshee Wines. The Willamette Valley called him back, where his return saw, first, the collaboration with Jean-Nicolas Méo of Domaine Méo Camuzet in Burgundy to establish Domaine Nicolas-Jay and most recently, reconnecting with Banshee Wines to establish their Oregon brand, Averaen Wines.
“‘It’s been a longtime dream to return to where five generations of my family lived and near the dirt, trees, and elevations I’m connected to. The Skinner family is a terrific fit for their mutual respect of the transcendent possibilities in El Dorado vineyards.'”
