A Chardonnay with a lot of energy! A shimmery, brilliant, golden green of a wine.

Add a vein of minerality running through the middle and a long creamy finish.

Charles Smith - 'Hellraiser turned winemaker' produces wines with the intention they are drunk now. 'If the Juice is good now, why wait?'

Growing up just outside of Sacramento, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Charles Smith began craving worldly travel at a young age due to his Welsh mother and French father. As soon as he had the chance, Charles decided to move to Denmark (for a lady friend he met in the states). While in Scandinavia, Charles spent the next nine years managing rock bands and concert tours throughout Europe. Wining and dining while on the road became a catalyst for his passion of wine, which ultimately triggered the career he has today.

In 1999, he moved back to the United States, specifically to the Pacific Northwest, opening a wine shop on Bainbridge Island. On a road trip in late 1999, he passed through the small town of Walla Walla and met a young Frenchman and winemaker. The two men discovered their common passion for great Syrah and Charles was eventually convinced to move to Walla Walla and make his own juice. In 2001, Charles released 330 cases of his first wine, the 1999 K Syrah.

In 2006, Charles created “Charles Smith Wines” The brand was themed as “The Modernist Project” which focuses on the way people generally consume wine today: immediately. The intent was (and still is) to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with true typicity of both the varietal (Merlot that tastes like Merlot) and true to the place of origin. The wines are full of flavour, balanced, and approachable.)

A self-taught winemaker, Charles is a true artisan and a pioneer in the wine world. In 2009 Food & Wine magazine awarded Charles “Winemaker of the Year” and in 2010 Seattle Magazine recognized Charles as their “Winemaker of the Year.”
