December 14, 2020 – Here we have a beautiful, if undecorated, shed. It’s a barn situated on a vineyard located between Santa Barbara and San Francisco, one that belongs to Justin Smith, owner and winemaker for Saxum Vineyard. “He’s a low-key and laid-back California guy, and in the wine industry he’s a true rock star, making more 100-point wines than anyone,” says Brian Korte, architect and partner at Clayton Korte. “He’s been making wine for a long time, and sells only to a mailing list – and it takes seven years to get on the list.”
