The Wine Smith
Dear Wine Smith friends,

   Time flies when you are having fun and boy has this summer flown by!  We have some great products for all of your outdoor adventures including the wine and beer!  Be sure to stop by on your way up the hill or spend an evening in beautiful historic Placerville. We will be having some great end of season closeouts and we always have the best $5.00 house red and $3.50 house brew.  We are also offering cheese plates and caprese salad starting this weekend. 

     In September we will be having some great Friday night wine & beer tastings as well as our usual music line-up. Oktoberfest is quickly approaching so dust of your lederhosen and dirndls to join us September 21, for great German beer, food, authentic German music,fun contests, and the amazing wiener dog races! For more information go to:

     As always we would like to thank you for your continued patronage and friendship.  You can also follow us on Facebook and Yelp.  We are currently running a great special on Yelp so get it while you can!

   "Cheers" Club Monthly Drawing
Each month we will be completing a random drawing for our wine club members.  The winner for this month is...drumroll please...

                 Nadean Music   

Nadean has won a fantastic bottle of 
Fiddletown Cellars 2011 Jack Rabbit Flat Zinfandel.  This wine comes from one of the oldest and most pristine vineyards in all of Amador county.  Winemaker Joe Shebl has crafted a beautiful zin and with only 150 cases produced this wine will soon be gone.  We currently have bottles in stock.          Congratulations Nadean!

To get in on these monthly drawings join our wine club for your opportunity.  It is free to join!

From our friends at David Girard....see the whole post below.

Theater in the Vineyard
Wine, cheese and theater in the beautiful outdoors, what a perfect way to spend an evening! Please join us for "Art" - a one act play starring our very own wine club manager - Graham Drake-Maurer! When wanna-be art connoisseur Serge buys a white painting with white lines, his best friend Marc is skeptical that anyone would spend money on such a piece. Bitingly perspective, and darkly humorous, "Art" invites the audience to explore their own concept of what they perceive as art, as Serge and Marc battle it out. PG-13, some strong language.

August 24th: doors open at 6:30, curtain at 7:30

No ticket necessary, suggested donation $7

Wine by the glass, cheese and charcuterie available for sale.

We'd love to see you there!
