About the Winery:
The Novy family roots trace back to Czechoslovakia where NOVY means “NEW.” It is in the spirit of family, heritage and the best new wines from new vineyards that Novy Wines was born.

It all started when Adam Lee and Dianna Novy met as employees at a well-known luxury department store in Dallas, Texas. Adam managed the fine wine program and Dianna oversaw the epicurean offerings. She was smart and savvy. He was fun and had access to good wine. Romance flourished, and with it, a world of new adventures. As Adam and Dianna bonded over their love of wine and passion for learning, they headed west from Texas to Sonoma to pursue their dream of making wine.

In 1988, as a sequel to Adam’s much lauded Siduri Pinot Noirs, Adam and Dianna founded Novy Family Wines together with Dianna’s parents and extended family. NOVY was born to capture Adam and Dianna’s mutual affection for Syrah and Zinfandel, and to engage the entire Novy family in the art of making wine together. Each harvest the Novy gang joined Adam and Dianna in California for a new vintage and a new chance to do what they loved most with the people they loved most.

With a focus on Syrah and Zinfandel, Novy Family Wines quickly established itself as a top producer. In 2005, The Wine Spectator called the Novy’s Syrahs “stellar” and named the 2003 Novy Sonoma County Syrah to its prestigious TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR.


Ratings & Reviews



93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Syrah Susan's Hill Vineyard offers up a gorgeous, mineral-drenched array of black and red raspberry fruits, crushed stone, licorice and wood spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich, yet elegant and streamlined palate feel. Still youthfully tight and backwards, yet with excellent mid-palate density, this is an outstanding Syrah that should hit prime time drinking in a year or two and have 7-8 years or more of ultimate longevity." - Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2013)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2011 Syrah Susan's Hill Vineyard, from a parcel in Pisoni, impresses for its pedigree. At once explosive yet backed up by considerable structure, the 2011 bursts from the glass with deep, mineral-infused black fruits. Layers of fruit continue to open up as the wine builds to a crescendo of aromas and flavors. This is another terrific effort for the year." - Antonio Galloni (July 2013)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Glass-staining ruby. A heady bouquet evokes dark fruit liqueur, licorice and woodsmoke, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Broad and seamless in the mouth, boasting good heft to its cassis and anise flavors. Dusty tannins come on late, adding shape to the long, smoky finish." - Josh Raynolds (Nov/Dec 13)
