  • When we plan our trip to San Francisco, the most difficult was choosing which wineries visited in NAPA. We chose Smith Madrone because despite promoting very good wines, they currently not charged by the tasting and this caused us a curiosity. It was the second Winery we visited after Grgich Hills and before V-Sattui. We were really delighted with the hospitality of Charlie Smith, one of its owners, which also speaks enough Spanish. We saw through his anecdotes and the wines tasted, the passion and the love that makes its wines. They are absolutely exquisite. We are left with the desire to return to continue chatting and enjoying the beautiful stories of Charlie and tasty wines that produce. Tip: Take shelter in winter because the winery does very cold and gps to get, given that is at the top of Spring Mountain. Highly recommended visit to this Winery.

  • We attended a wine tasting tour and really enjoyed it. By appointment only. Hosted by owner Charlie Smith. Very unpretentious. The wines were very special. This is not some Epcot version of CA winerie...  more »
  • What a find. This is a great, small winery on Spring Mountain, started by Charlie and Stu Smith and still run by them, now with the help of Stu's son, Sam. There is nothing fancy or pretentious here, ...  more »

  • Visited there 2 years ago, still remember the wonderful experience there, great wine and nice treat of Smith’s brothers.
  • Loved this visit and what a genuine pleasure to meet the Smith brothers. Thank you Charlie for sharing your knowledge with us. It has been a highlight of our trip. Truly beautiful property.
  • We first found Smith-Madrone in the 90's, trying to avoid the wine auction crowds on the valley flooor. Since then, it's been our favorite wine and winery and a must visit when we go to Napa. Charlie and Stu are generous with their wine and their abundant knowledge of the art of wine production. The site is gorgeous. Their recent anniversary party was the best winery party I've attended. Sadly, it was the day before the fires began. Our thoughts and hopes for a safe outcome are with them during this terrible fire.
  • Wine is good...sometimes great. Incredible setting for tastings.
  • Amazing wine and great company. This place is a must see during a Napa visit. The view is out of this world as well. Don't forget to say hi to Curley, the vineyard dog, he'd love you to throw his ball.
