Husband and wife team, Eric Story and Alison Smith-Story, who met while working for K&L Wine Merchants in Northern California, bring over a combined 30 years of wine industry experience to Smith Story Wine Cellars. They used Kickstarter to create Smith Story Wine Cellars that operates out of a custom crush facility in Windsor.
Ross Cobb makes Pinot Noir under his own label, COBB Wines, and crafts wines for Hirsch Vineyard. Katy Wilson produces Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir under her LaRue label. Together the “Dream Team” consult for Anaba Wines and now Smith Story Wine Cellars. Eric is actively involved in the winemaking as well.
Smith Story offers both white (Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay), and Red (Pinot Noir from Helluva Vineyard in Anderson Valley), as well as a Riesling and Rosé from Rheingau, Germany. The inaugural vintage was 2014. In 2016, they began producing Lord Sandwich Red, named after their goldendoodle dog Lord Sandwich who has quite a following on Instagram. For each bottle sold, a pair of socks is donated to charity ("Socks for Sandwich").
The wines are sold on the website and are reasonably priced. Tastings by appointment.
