Stu sat down with John Lenart to record a segment of John’s podcast, The Honest Pour:
Stuart Smith founded Smith-Madrone in 1971 on Spring Mountain. Since then he and his brother have been making some fantastic wines from their self built winery. If you want to see winemaking that isn’t veiled by the branded, retail friendly experience you get at many places along highway 29, head up Spring Mountain and pay a visit to Smith-Madrone. Stu may likely be your host in the barn-like winery/tasting room. You’ll find him a gigantic character never short on opinions. More importantly you’ll taste some spectacular and insightfully made wines.
