Meet winemaker Linn Scott of Sparkman cellars
5pm to 6:30 pm
Kelly and Chris Sparkman launched Sparkman Cellars in Woodinville, Washington in 2004 to focus on their family. With many years in the hospitality world, they felt uniquely situated in the midst of the Northwest's extraordinary and booming wine industry. Winemakers, growers, restaurant folks and wine shop people all made up this community that they found compelling.
Linn Scott, a Seattle native, is the winemaker at Sparkman Cellars. He has a Masters of Science in Viticulture and Enology from the Vinifera Euromaster Consortium. He studied and conducted research at Montpellier SupAgro in Montpellier, France and at the Forschungsanstalt Geisenheim in Germany. He completed a thesis on the viticultural and enological practices that are used in farming and making Riesling in Washington State. Aside from winemaking, Linn teaches Viticulture and Wine Science classes at the Northwest Wine Academy.
