First there was K Vintners, then the Magnificent Wine Company and now winemaker Charles Smith brings you his latest revelation. Charles Smith Wines: The Modernist Project is a response to how people generally consume wine today, that is immediately…as in immediately after being purchased at a market, restaurant or bar, to be drunk straight away. Wine in this category is typically ether simple, or is a wine that would be much better a few years down the road. ‘Modernist Project’ wines are about putting as much into the bottle as possible. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity with regards to variety—that is merlot that tastes like merlot—and to the vineyard—wine that tastes like where it was grown. The wines are full of flavor, balanced, and true to their place of origin. Owner-winemaker Charles Smith with his big hair, kick ass attitude and bold packaging arrived in the Walla Walla Valley following eleven years in Scandinavia managing rock bands. Originally hailing from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his entire life. – Description from markomkc

Description 2 of 2

Charles Smith is a winery, named for its eccentric, big-haired proprietor and chief winemaker, in Walla Walla, Washington. This is the breakout project for Smith, who previously worked with K Vintners and the Magnificent Wine Company. Charles Smith’s Modernist Project is about producing wines that are ready to drink upon purchase (but that a little more bottle aging would never harm), that reflect the true characteristics of the grapes and their place of origin. His motto: “It’s just booze - drink it!” His most popular wine is Kung Fu Riesling, a refreshing, off-dry white that’s easy to drink and enjoy, especially in hot weather. Other wines are the Velvet Devil Merlot, Eve Chardonnay and Royal City Syrah among others.
