Too many Sonoma Sauvignon Blancs are produced with one thing in mind: make as much as possible for as cheap as possible because no one can tell the difference. Well, Smith Story Cellars defies that myth with gusto. Using grapes from Russian River, Knights Valley, and Sonoma Valley this is a Sauvignon Blanc with exuberant character and depth.
"Wine is our life, we are honored to now jump into the creative process of producing wines after decades of learning and selling wine for others. It is our hope that you invest in our story, fall in love with the wines and help us spread the joy of Smith Story Wine Cellars, we are humbled by this opportunity to follow our passion. Drink what you love, love what you drink. This is Our Story." - Eric and Ali
Smith Story wines begin with the land, places that are special to Eric and Ali throughout California and Europe. Their belief is to respect what the land offers, while ultimately delivering beautiful expressions of each varietal to supporters of Smith Story Wine Cellars. As such, Smith Story Wines are made with respect for the land, kindness for the grower and, love from the winemaker. The wines show restraint, balance, and integrity of the grape. The wines are made with classic, old world techniques which let the fruit and terroir speak for themselves.More from this winery
