Smith Story Cellars


Smith Story Wine Cellars, based in Sonoma County, California, is the labor of love for Eric and Alison, who bring their combined 40+ years in the wine industry to the venture. Born out of their shared passion for wines during their tenure at K&L Wine Merchants, the couple founded the winery after eloping in Hawaii in 2013. Eric’s expertise lies in wine buying and retail management, specifically in European wines, while Ali excels in hospitality, marketing, and sales, providing a complete wine-supply-chain approach. Respect for the land and love for winemaking guide their philosophy, as they utilize old world techniques in creating balanced and expressive wines from family-owned vineyards. Acting with kindness for the grower and commitment to quality, Smith Story Wine Cellars embodies the vision of its founders to create wines that encapsulate their journey and passion.

Smith Story Wine Cellars is a must while wine tasting in Sonoma County. Eric, Ali and Dusty are so welcoming. We also love that they are a dog friendly winery in Healdsburg. All of their low-intervention, single vineyard, family farmed wines are amazing; Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, French inspired Chardonnay, Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon to name a few. If you are planning on a day of wine tasting, I recommend stopping by here first, and make sure to make a reservation during the busy months.
