haunting, evocative, heartfelt
Eisold Smith is an Oregon-based, loving partnership of wine industry slaves, Lauren Eisold and Adam Smith. They are hopelessly devoted to producing beautiful wines that express elegance, complexity & integrity.
Lauren Eisold studied viticulture & enology in her post-graduate schooling at Weinsberg, Germany, followed by years of developing her skills in Europe, South Africa, California and finally Oregon. It was here she met Adam Smith who was, at the time, working for Shea Vineyard. Mentored by the winemaking team at Domaine Serene, Smith took his craft with him as he went on to produce wines with Craggy Range in New Zealand, Bethel Heights in Oregon. Today Lauren is a leading viticulturist and spends her days farming and developing premium vineyards around the Willamette Valley with Atlas Vineyard Management. Adam focuses on Eisold Smith Wines as winemaker, sales manager and cat-herder.
Lauren and Adam have slowly been building momentum over the years, driven only by utter obsession. They have developed an intriguing program of wines, crafting classic, sensual Pinot noir & Chardonnay from the Willamette Valley’s wealth of growing regions, as well as vibrant, blissful red wines from the haunted Gold Country soils Adam hails from. Eisold Smith Wines are produced in a humble facility in the majestic coastal foothills of the Eola-Amity AVA.
