D & D Smith Winery is ran by a family of five. We have all been a part of making wine for over a decade!
We have been in business since February 2008 and went through our 1st "crush season" in the fall of 2008. We have opened a winery to provide tastings, GREAT TIMES, private parties, indoor/outdoor seating, and entertainment (check out our calendar for events). Thank you for your support!
Did you know? That D & D Smith Winery had their first "Estate" wine available in 2013? Yep, Frontenac Gris, a light, peachy flavor! We planted these vines nearly 5 years earlier and had our first good harvest in 2012. We are so excited!! Update: This wine was very tasteful and sold rather quickly. We are out Dec 2013 and the next batch will be ready around mid 2014. We'll keep you posted!
We had our first Gold Winner with our Apple-Cinn at the Ohio Wine Competition in 2013!
We are located at 401 W. Main Street in Norwalk, Ohio 44857. It's somewhat tricky to locate. Follow West Main St to Rt 61, head South, just past the Armory go right onto West Main St. The first yellow house you see on the left is our Winery.
Thank you for visiting our site and please give us a call at 419-577-0242 or stop in for a glass of your favorite wine!
We have food on Friday nights from 6pm-8pm Spaghetti Buffet with Meat Sauce for $5.00, includes Salad, and Bread (good stuff!). Choose a beverage to go along with it! Family friendly. Soda and water as well as sparkling grape juice is also available.
Humbling new beginnings. I'll start adding some photos of our 1st year producing wine, our winery before it was a winery, and some photos of the same spot now in the near future. Before and after shots! This is in the basement of our home around September 2008. We took a room, put locks on both doors (for our federals you know!), had 7 tanks of 600 liters each, a 6 prong bottle filler shown and a stand alone hand corker. That was the start of D and D Smith Winery! More to come!
Benefit for Brain Cancer Research July 2011. Check out a few photos we've posted. I realize it's a bit late but I wanted to get a few of these up. Thank you for participating in this event!
We are going to do another fund raiser this July 7th 2012 for The PiggyBack Foundation right here in Norwalk. Raffles, 5k evening run. This was a great local event and one we were proud to offer a donation to the PiggyBack Foundation. Thank you for all your help and support!
