A viticulture class in 1994 inspired Linda and Hoot Smith to demonstrate their love of red wine by planting a vineyard for premium grapes. They chose a parcel of land that had been in the Smith family since the 1860’s.
From the first harvest in 1997, The Smiths dream was to produce the highest quality wines from their grapes. Their dream has became a reality. Today, Linda and Hoot Smith, their sons, daughters-in-law and even their grandchildren all play an active role in Kastania’s current and future production of fine wines.
