Kat Adams
Assistant Winemaker


California native Kat Adams graduated with a chemistry degree from California’s Humboldt State University in 1999. Shortly thereafter, she was leveraging her talent and passion working in the environmental monitoring field. A worthwhile profession but one that lacked the creative engagement Kat sought.   

It was a vintner friend in Healdsburg, Sonoma County’s viticulture epicenter, who encouraged Kat to pursue a career in winemaking. A few months later, she secured an analysis position at Gallo Winery’s Sonoma facility. In 2006, Kat left Gallo and joined Valley of the Moon and Lake Sonoma as enologist, working under former Head Winemaker, Greg Winter.  

Today, Kat works along side of our celebrated consulting winemaker Scott McLeod in crafting the new direction for Valley of the Moon wines.
