Stuart learned his winemaking techniques from his father, Henry Spoto Jr. Henry has been making wine for over a quarter century in Davis, California and has been featured in Wine Spectator magazine for his award winning wines.<br>Spoto Wines has also won it's share of awards over the years, both in the California State Fair and the Home Winemakers Classic in Napa.
Winemaking became a hobby for both father and son, and in 2000, they began creating their own vintages. When out at dinner, the men would bring their wines to enjoy, and would always offer a glass to the sommelier. The sommelier would often ask where he could purchase the wines. Upon learning that the wines were not available on the market, they encouraged the men to become licensed. In 2004, Spoto Wines became the first bonded winery in a residential neighborhood in Sacramento County. This was not an easy task, and Christy and Stuart spent many months applying for licenses from the required departments. Today, due to the Spoto’s pioneering efforts, there are many bonded wineries in Sacramento County, allowing home wineries to sell their wines commercially.
In 2010, Stuart took the wine business on full-time. In November 2010, Spoto Wines was invited to be a member of the Oakville Wine Growers Association, which promotes the Oakville AVA (American Viticultural Area) as the premier Cabernet region in the United States. A year later, Spoto Wines was granted membership to the Napa Valley Vintners, an organization that promotes the wines from the Napa Valley.
Spoto Wines is a family business dedicated to producing the finest small-production, high quality Oakville wines.
