SMITH & SHETH

We are in the business of creating great wines that bring great pleasure. Pleasure that comes from consuming great wine made by fine people to be shared with good friends.

As contemporary negociants Steve Smith and Brian Sheth seek out the exceptional. We have made the most of over 35 years of experience with the growers and makers of New Zealand – forging relationships, hand selecting the best parcels from exceptional vineyards only, then nurturing, blending and bottling these wines. Establishing steadfast relationships with the land, growers and makers who form the DNA of our CRU.

The french call it terroir - a sense of place. In New Zealand we have our own defining word - turangawaewae - our place to stand in the world - it describes the special connection of a people and the land they live, love and work in. Our wines reflect the magic and alchemy of this relationship and the true beauty of these places.

CRU has been chosen to collect these wines under one banner as it is the only word that exists that means “vineyards of exceptional quality.” Each wine also has the Maori designation that relates to its whenua (land) origins. The labels have a unique design embossed within that represent the genomes sequence of the grape varieties we are working with. The DNA that is natural to the vine and to the vineyard ecosystem is reflected in each and every wine we make.

Our names, Steve Smith and Brian Sheth, are the assurance of a wine that will give inordinate pleasure. Let us share with you the pleasure, culture and craft of our wine.

THORNDON WINE CLUB | SMITH & SHETH WITH STEVE SMITH MW

When Master of Wine Steve Smith and Texan investor Brian Sheth met in 2014, it was more than a bottle of Chardonnay that they shared, but also a dream. A dream of wines made from the best sites possible, pairing location with the varieties and styles which best suited them. Where the French and indeed wine afficionados the world over refer to 'terroir' as being the ultimate influencer over their wines, Smith and Sheth prefer to use the Maori word 'Turangawaewae.' This is our place to stand in the world. Like terroir it also refers to the connection between a place and the people that love it, live in it and work it. Their wines then are all bottled with the vineyard of provenance clearly and proudly marked, as not just being carefully selected as a place where fine wine may be made, but also to indicate that magical sense of Turangawaewae that makes each so different. To take us through the range of Smith + Sheth's new release wines we are proud to host none other than Steve Smith MW himself. Steve is an icon of the New Zealand wine industry, becoming one of our first Masters of Wine and also leading Craggy Range into becoming one of the most highly regarded wineries in the country. This tasting is sure to be very informative as well as taking a delicious first look at a range of superb wines.
