Blacksmith Cellars

218 Haight Avenue
Alameda, CA 94501


Open: Year Round

In 2003, winemaker Matt Smith launched Blacksmith Cellars with the release of his 2001 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, an elegant wine that celebrated the artistry, craftsmanship, and tradition of great independent winemaking.

Two years later, Matt's first white wine, the 2004 Monterey Chenin Blanc, won a 4 Star Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair Commercial Wine Competition.

While Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc have remained Blacksmith's flagship red and white, Matt loves to work with new varietals. Over the years he's added classic grapes such as Syrah and Chardonnay to Blacksmith's line-up, as well as lesser-known gems, such as Torrontes and Verdelho, and a pair of exceptional proprietary blends: "Adamantine" and "Hephaestus."
