Owned by husband and wife Eric and Ali (Smith) Story, Smith Story Wine Cellars launched in 2014 with a Kickstarter campaign raising $25,000 and funding their first year of grape purchases. Smith Story Wines are made with respect for the land, kindness for the grower and, love from the winemaker. Each vineyard we work with is owned by families, we want to ensure their present and future success as grape growers. The wines show restraint, balance and integrity of the grape.
Antonio Galloni 93 points: "The 2017 Cabernet Franc is an absolutely joyous bottle of wine. A burst of sweet red cherry, blood orange, spice, mint and espresso makes a strong opening statement. Bold, juicy and wonderfully inviting, with a classic sense of structure, the Franc is an absolute winner in this range."
