Pickberry Vineyard, Sonoma Mountain AVA.
We began working with the Pickberry Vineyard in 2015, long before the "Pickleball" craze took over tennis courts across America, but often referred to as "Pickleberry" by customers that always creates a chuckle. This iconic vineyard was named by the family's children in their younger years, they often visited from their home in the East Bay to pick wild blackberries on the property and referred to the land as such! Our Smith Story Pickberry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has received wildly awesome reviews from wine critics and connoisseurs alike.
This wine truly personifies what California cabernet sauvignon is meant to taste like. Complex without heaviness, vibrant with elegance and a nose that brings you back to your favorite chair sipping fireside perhaps. The 2019 is yet to be rated, but trust us here, it's a blockbuster wine. The owners of Pickberry recently joined us for our Glen Ellen Star dinner and raved about the 2019 too! We are equally proud and honored!
A steal of a deal especially if you purchase via LUCKY 22 or are a Storyteller Wine Club Member. More on the 2019 Smith Story Pickberry Vineyard.
Day 6 of LUCKY 22.
Approx. 1986 cases to go to meet our goal of 2022! It's going to take sharing this opportunity with others in your wine circles. We've been asked what we need most these days to help our winery thrive, simply support us through purchase and sharing the Smith Story with others. Tasting room visits have been incredibly down this year, shipping fees are up along with the cost of everything that goes into producing wine. We have faith that our Story, our wines and our people will take us to a level of achievement that we are so ready for.
Thanks to everyone who jumped on this already. "Lucky 22" sales will help us clear the cellar for our biggest bottling since 2019.
