    On December 5, 1884 President Chester A. Arthur signed a “patent” (the 19th century term for a real estate deed) from the U.S. Land Office granting ownership of what is today Smith-Madrone Vineyards & Winery to George Cook. This special block, the source of our Cook's Flat Reserve, honors this history.

In November 2023 Smith-Madrone’s 2018 Riesling had been named Reserve Grand Champion, Best of Show, at the 2024 Rodeo Uncorked! ® International Wine Competition, organized by the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. “We are so very honored by this award,” says Stuart Smith . “I’ve believed in Riesling as a variety since we first planted it in 1972. When well-made, dry Rieslings age and improve for many years; they also complement more dishes than any other varietal. We simply love this varietal and I am proud to champion it,” he added.
