EP10: Alison Smith-Story joins the hosts to share her story of founding Smith Story Wine Cellars (smithstorywinecellars.com), with her husband Eric, after eloping to Hawaii. Their wines are made with respect for the land, kindness for the grower, and love from the winemaker. “Wine is our life, we are honored to now jump into the creative process of producing wines after decades of learning and selling wine for others. It is our hope that you invest in our story, fall in love with the wines and help us spread the joy of Smith Story Wine Cellars, we are humbled by this opportunity to follow our passion,” according to Eric and Alison. Their philosophy: “Drink what you love, love what you drink.” Tune in to learn how they honored and incorporated their beloved dogs into their label (without creating “critter” label designs) and taste their offerings vicariously.
