Sommelier Adam Chumas of Tilth - Biography

Seattle, WA

November 2008

Chumas had a fake ID as a kid, but instead of going out to bars, he snuck out to expensive restaurants and bought bottles of wine. He followed his penchant for dining, and fell into the role of wine director at an inn in New Hampshire without any formal training, just a love for wine. At Tilth he’s built a hearty glass pour program (18 wines by the glass!), and though his list isn’t as fervently organic as the restaurant’s food, he does focus on organic, biodynamic, sustainable, and affordable wines.
