Postmodern Winemaking "Somm-inar" with Clark Smith

Notify me when space is available:

“There’s a message in every bottle...” - Clark Smith

Spend the afternoon with celebrated maverick, Clark Smith, owner/winemaker of WineSmith and author of Postmodern Winemaking Sunday, July 14th!  Named one of 48 Most Influential People in the Wine Industry, Smith calls into question conventional wisdom and explores traditions outside of mainstream wine production techniques. His WineSmith wines are forgeries and oddities that often succeed at the seemingly impossible, using traditional varieties and sometimes eclectic experiments with novel varieties and styles to illustrate many challenges to sommelier expectations.  

“I want to show that California is an excellent place to make French-style wines – balanced, moderate alcohol, age-worthy and profound”
