While you are there, just smash the buy button for this one. From the northern end of Cali's wine-growing zones comes this chewy, quenching, and bright wine with earthy elegance and a good dollop of oak that does not, at all, take away from the grape's inherent character. The mouthfeel is full of fruit and there is a bright lift from its natural acidity. There's a kiss of oak woven into this wine that adds a nice complexity.

We invite you to reach out to us for private venue rental for executive retreats, social celebrations, and collaborations.The Smith Story is quite unique, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of press across the USA and Wine Business Monthly named Smith Story a “Hot Brand…The All American Story”.
Our Story makes an impact on individuals and groups alike. Smith Story began from two people working in a fine wine shop to falling in love to starting their own winery by launching on Kickstarter.com, the first American winery to be crowdfunded. “Family Farmer’s First” is the first step owners Ali Smith and Eric Story took in 2014, and since have made beautiful wine from over 20 family farmed vineyards throughout the North Coast of California.
The Smith Story tasting room in Healdsburg can accommodate up to 100 people inside and outside in the wine garden too. Local customers, chefs and event planners have all enjoyed a turn-key and easy partnership with Smith Story when planning and executing small gatherings to high-profile large events as well.
