Owner and Winemaker of Spoto Wines, Sacramento, CA.
The Spoto family has been hand-crafting wines for over 30 years. Stuart Spoto learned the art of winemaking from his father Henry Spoto Jr. who was featured in Wine Spectator for his award-winning wines in June of 2003. This family collaboration has greatly influenced Stuart to create his small boutique winery and perfect his Oakville Bordeaux blends. Stuart’s formal education is in Chemical and Civil Engineering from the University of California at Davis. He has also acquired an extensive knowledge in the art of winemaking by working closely with the Department of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis. Stuart’s daughter, Arianna, recently graduated with a degree in Wine and Viticulture from California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo and is currently distributing Spoto Wines around the Central Coast. Stuart’s small family winery is dedicated to producing the finest Oakville Cabernet and Bordeaux blends.
