Stu Smith of Smith Madrone Winery - Part 2: Stories & Reflections Entering their 50th Year

This is Part 2 of a discussion I had with Stu Smith as he reflects on entering their 50th year as Smith Madrone Winery in Napa Valley. You can tell from the trailer that Stu is immensely entertaining, intelligent, passionate about wine and certainly doesn’t hold back sharing what he thinks. We discuss the evolution of wine styles in Napa Valley, the effect of wine “ratings” on the entire wine world, the value and ethics learned from the great outdoors and much much more.

You’re in for a real treat and I hope you enjoy.

About the Podcast

PEOPLE Behind the Places
Behind every place is a story and behind every story are the people.
Behind every place is a story and behind every story are the people.

Thank you for joining our conversation with the PEOPLE Behind the Places, sponsored by BE Local. We’ll explore their lives, inspirations, challenges, lessons learned and anything interesting in between.

What can we learn of how they craft a good life pursuing their passion and sharing it with the world in the places we love?

For those natural places which no person can claim creation of, we’ll talk with those intimately familiar with them, share experiences and learn how we can experience and preserve them.

BE Local introduces the Art of Experience Curation to inspire the lives of people through sharing experiences uniquely matched for them and simplifying their travel planning process.

Please subscribe and join us on this journey of exploring the PEOPLE Behind the Places.
