Ali's in LA! She is pumped to be at the Venice Whole Foods Wine Bar pouring our wines from 6-8pm. This is a VERY casual come and go, and she'd love to meet many of you in person who have supported us from afar.
Friday November 6, 2015: Austin
The Inaugural Smith Story Supper Club at Josephine House. Oh this is going to be EPIC. We're hosting a family style dinner for 24 featuring our Smith Story Wines and swapping some good stories over dinner. Please visit our website for details and to reserve your seats as soon as you can, you'll be such a big part of Our Story as we create our winery history.
More November Happenings will post soon, so stay tuned!
What else is up?
Please visit our Wine Shop to purchase our current releases. Orders have begun to ship that were placed over the hot months (oh it's still hot around here too). We will continue to carefully watch the weather forecasts so the heat does not damage your shipments. For those who are local, we are happy to hold your orders and meet up in person. It's been a blast getting to know our new fans!
We can't thank you enough for your support so far this year. If ever you have an issue with shipping fees, please don't hesitate to track us down to see how we can help. We're encouraged by a new shipping partner who's allowing us to offer minimal shipping fees on ground orders.
Also, we're already receiving requests for holiday client gifts. We are happy to work with you on a 2 or 3 bottle special wine package. Ali's in charge of this one...so please reach out with your questions and order details.
One of the coolest things happening is hearing where you've found our wines on wine lists across the country too. We are working with a great team of wholesalers in a few states now, so thank you for helping to support your local wine haunts who carry Smith Story Wine Cellars.
Smith Story Wine Cellars Eats!
Now that Harvest is over, we promise to be more diligent about updating delicious wine pairing recipes. Please continue to send your culinary creations to us, we're posting on our social media channels as well. Hashtag your photos #smithstorywinecellarseats to also catch our attention!
Visiting the Winery
You have options...but only if you contact us in advance firstname.lastname@example.org
- Our winery is in a "garagiste" setting in Sonoma, right next to highly sought-after wineries a few blocks away from theSonoma town square. It's not 5th Ave. but a true winemakers winery inside. If you ever want to meet here, we'll most likely get to taste a few barrel samples along with our current releases.
- On the Deck at our home in Marin County...now that the weather is cooperating a bit more, we're happy to host our VIP guests with a cool view of Mt. Tam. You must be "Sandwich Friendly". This option has been great for many of you already when heading North to Wine Country.
- In one of our vineyards...this takes a wee bit more coordination, but oh we'd love to show you the land we love so much. This option can be tailored to your logistical itinerary. We'll set up in the vineyard much like a fancy tail-gate and have a ball together!
Ok that's all for now, it's all happening! Looking forward to meeting each and every one of you in the coming weeks and months.
- Eric and Ali Story
