Smith Vineyard

About

Smith Vineyard produces hand crafted, small-lot estate wines. Small lots of each varietal come in from our vineyard. We have the luxury of focusing our full attention on each vine and each barrel, making fine wines. Our tasting room is casually elegant with a touch of the past. Small enough for that cozy glass of wine with a friend, but large enough for a group to taste our wines at the tasting bar. In the heart of Downtown Grass Valley, you can stop in while shopping for a relaxing break, or taste before you head to dinner. Our tasting room walls are adorned with local artists work that strike up the imagination and conversation while our looping slideshow of our photographs can entertain for hours.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our estate vineyard is within the Sierra Foothills appellation, near Grass Valley. At 2,500 ft. elevation, our wine grapes get their fruity ripeness from long sunny days and their balanced complexity from cool Sierra nights.

Small lots of each varietal come in from our 10 acre vineyard. At this size, we have the luxury of focusing our full attention on each vine and each barrel, making fine wines that will go beautifully with good food and good friends.

Smith Vineyard produces hand crafted, small-lot estate wines. Our 10 acre vineyard is planted in premium varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Primitivo, Syrah and Chardonnay. Dr. Wayne Smith fulfilled his desire to farm when he planted the first vineyard block in 1980, Wayne’s dedication to organic farming soon followed.
