K Vintners
Native yeast. Foot crushed. Basket Pressed. Charles Smith opened his first winery, K Vintners, in December of 2001. The first release,1999 K Syrah from Walla Walla Valley, initiated the style of winemaking that Charles continues today: small lots of single vineyard Syrahs and field blends of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo and Viognier, all of which are hand-picked, foot-stomped, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and basket pressed.

Wondering about the K on the label? Well, after working at a wine shop in Bainbrdige, WA, he knew he wanted to create a memorable label.
