In 2003, winemaker Matt Smith launched Blacksmith Cellars with the release of his 2001 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, an elegant wine that celebrated the artistry, craftsmanship, and tradition of great independent winemaking.
Two years later, Matt's first white wine, the 2004 Monterey Chenin Blanc, won a 4 Star Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair Commercial Wine Competition.
While Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc have remained Blacksmith's flagship red and white, Matt loves to work with new varietals. Over the years he's added classic grapes such as Syrah and Chardonnay to Blacksmith's line-up, as well as lesser-known gems, such as Torrontes and Verdelho, and a pair of exceptional proprietary blends: "Adamantine" and "Hephaestus."
Blacksmith Cellars participates in two cooperative tasting rooms.
In Alameda, you can find us at Rockwall Wine Company.
In Suisun Valley, sample our wines at the Suisun Valley Wine Cooperative Tasting Room.
Both rooms are open Thursday through Sunday. Visit their websites for hours and locations.
