The Best New Sauvignon Blanc from California?!

Our 2014 Smith Story Wine Cellars Sauvignon Blanc
...well it's what people are saying about our Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc, our first born! So it's been 3 months now since we released our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc for $25 bucks a bottle and we couldn't be happier with the wine and also with the praise this crispy white wine has received. Judge Ken Starr who's the President of Baylor University (Ali's Alma Mater) has even applauded the wine! We love seeing your photos on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages as well - keep'em coming.

Each time we are alerted to a new review published on the internet, Ali's blood pressure rises until she reads the review - thankfully smiles trump the moment! Most are 90+ point ratings and a handful of top 5 & 4 Star honors on VIVINO.

A few from Delectable ...

"CA Sauvignon Blanc that I actually like?!! Score!"  - Sommelier Jen from SoCal.

"This wine just warms my bosoms. Perfect! Cool story bro.",  Drummer, Distributor Wine Manager, Shadd from Austin.

"Outstanding!", Rohit, Owner of Travis Heights Beverage World in Austin.

"Loire Valley is our Muse", is what we often tell folks when describing our Sauvignon Blanc. The soils found in our Sonoma Mountain Vineyard emulate those of Sancerre where our Knights Valley grapes bring a real finesse to the wine. Our 2014 was aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks - with no oak treatment. The Sauvignon Blanc is bright and popping with a big mix of minerality (think wet limestone), lemon-lime citrus notes and a streak of lemon thyme too.

We are so thrilled with this sophisticated but gulp-able white wine! It's perfect with summer dishes, poured poolside (along great 80's music hopefully blaring) and is now being served in some of America's top restaurants. One of our mailing list members sent us a note of how he accidentally left a bottle in the freezer overnight...thawed out the next day and was still drinking spectacular. NICE!

Keep spreading the good word, it's heart-warming to see how our wine is selling...thank you. Oh we love this Sauvignon Blanc!!

This is Our Story.
