Ep 23: Saxum Vineyards with Owner & Winemaker Justin Smith

May 27, 2021

Today’s episode: Saxum Vineyards. Owner and Winemaker Justin Smith sits down with Adam Montiel in the caves at Saxum.

You’ll go past the private gate into the winery that has lifted Paso’s street cred to unthinkable heights. Adam takes you into the caves, into the vineyards, and into a conversation with a winemaker whose wine list people wait years to get on, whose wines have not only on many occasions reached 98, 99, and 100 points, but has topped the most prestigious lists of top wines in the world and has been hailed for its quality and expression from every wine publication that matters.

Best part: he’s just a cool dude from Templeton.

Saxum’s wines have elevated Paso with no doubt, and we’ll see what drives Justin, and even get a sneak into what he’s planning for the future of Saxum.
