Raised in Dallas, Texas, Beth Adams made her way to the Napa Valley via North Carolina, where she worked for a small fine wine distributor. It was there that she developed her palate and acquired a taste for some of Napa Valley's finest wines.

On a fateful New Years Eve in 1999 Beth met Joe Briggs, owner and winemaker of August Briggs Winery. The two became friends and, later that year, she moved to Napa Valley to take on the role of Sales and Marketing Director for Joe's small, family-owned winery. For the next eight years, Beth earned her wine stripes doing everything from writing marketing plans to hosing out barrels.

Beth decided to test her own winemaking capabilities in 2005, when she began making her own wine under the Adi label. In late 2007, Beth took another bold step, leaving August Briggs to focus on her own brand and start her own consulting company, Abigail Adams Wine Co. Beth named her company Abigail Adams after her two grandmothers, Abigail Phillips and Ruth Adams. "My grandmothers' loving spirits are with me every day, in everything I do," Beth proudly says.
