Nova Cadamatre MW (USA)

Nova is the first female winemaker in the US to achieve the title of Master of Wine and one of very few American winemakers to do so. She resides in the beautiful Finger Lakes of upstate NY with her husband, Brian, and son, Nathaniel. Currently, she is Director of Winemaking for Canandaigua Winery for whom she makes the 240 Days wines; a Riesling, dry rosé, and Cabernet Franc. She also is the owner of Trestle Thirty One, a new, high end, boutique winery making age-worthy, dry Riesling. In 2014, Nova was listed in the Wine Enthusiast’s Top 40 under 40 list and has numerous 90+ scoring wines to her credit from both California and New York. Originally from Greer, South Carolina, Nova began her career in wine after moving to New York to pursue horticulture. As one of the first graduates of Cornell’s Viticulture and Enology programme in 2006, Nova relocated to California to assume a number of winemaking roles with many iconic wineries including Beringer, Chateau St. Jean, Chateau Souverain, and most recently at Robert Mondavi Winery. There she was the red winemaker focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon from the iconic To Kalon Vineyard. Nova is a WSET Alumni, blogger, wine writer and Ningxia Winemaker Challenge contestant.
