SHAUNA WHITE

VINEYARD + WINERY MANAGER, ADAMO ESTATE WINERY

@ADAMOESTATEWINERY

Shauna White grew up in Kelowna, BC, spending her days in her family’s vineyard (her aunt is renowned organic winemaker Ann Sperling) so you might say she’s got wine in her blood! Upon deciding to follow her passion, Shauna began the formal part of her education at Niagara College, becoming a certified Wine and Viticultural Technician.

While spending her practicum at Domaine Laroche in Chablis, France, she fell in love with Chardonnay – and with travelling! Shauna continued to broaden her horizons by spending time at Ponzi Vineyards in the Wallamette Valley (Oregon), at Brokenwood Wines in the Hunter Valley (Australia), at Le Clos Jordanne (Niagara, Ontario), Mt. Difficulty Wines (Central Otago, New Zealand), Ravine Vineyard (Ontario) and at Road 13 Vineyards (Oliver, BC) before settling at Adamo Estate Winery in 2014.

Shauna puts her passion and experience to great use working with the Adamo family to grow and harvest fruit from our region, and to make wines that have heart and history.
