“Some of my favorite moments have been spent on the family farm with my grandfather and father, who tell stories of how it used to be,” Robert said. “I especially remember my grandfather telling the story about the introduction of the idea of a grape harvester and how the farmers laughed at the idea of a machine that picked grapes.”
Smasne Cellars was a big winner at the 2013 Seattle Wine Awards! Read on for a full list of our prize-winning wines.
More than 60 gold medals were awarded to Northwest wines at the 2013 SavorNW Wine Awards. Washington’s Smasne Cellars was the top winery, claiming six gold medals including a Double Gold for its 2010 Icewine and collecting golds for its 2009 Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Carmenere, 2009 Block 3 Syrah, 2010 Konner Ray White and 2011 Farm Girl Rose.
It’s easy to see that Smasne is deeply rooted in the Yakima Valley and family is important to him. He makes wines named after his son and daughter. His Farm Boy label has a drawing of him as a child, and Farm Girl depicts his daughter.
Between his own labels and his client work, Smasne makes something north of 25,000 cases, and he just added a six-year contract to make wines for the WSU Museum of Art. He does all of this with four full-time and 11 part-time employees in a 75,000- square-foot warehouse in Grandview.
