Welcome to Terra Firma USA, Inc! We started our company with the primary goal of introducing and promoting the best quality Romanian wines to the U.S. market. We work with the most reputable producers from Romania, most of them being post-communist era companies, bringing to the market new style wines made in a traditional way.
We are the exclusive United States importer of Terra Romana, Chevalier de Dyonis and Heavenly Retreat brands.
Why Romanian Wine?
When most people think of wine, they think France or Italy. Terra Firma USA, Inc. is not like other wine importers/wholesalers. We choose to primarily import Romanian wine for one reason – the potential in this relatively untapped market with a rich history of traditional winemaking.
Terra Firma USA is proud to welcome Smith-Madrone Winery to our portfolio!
Napa Valley, July 2021 — Smith-Madrone Winery is now represented in the state of Missouri by Terra Firma USA.
“We are delighted to be represented by Terra Firma USA,” said Stu Smith, General Partner/Enologist, Smith-Madrone, in making the announcement.
“Smith-Madrone is a Napa Valley treasure. Their age-worthy, terroir-driven wines are a perfect fit for Terra Firma USA’s portfolio of authentic, approachable, accessible wines of distinction,” commented Cristian Soare, founder/proprietor, Terra Firma USA.
“We are so grateful to our friends who referred us to Smith-Madrone. These wines are exactly what we look for– food-friendly, restrained, terroir-driven, and with personality. It is an honor to represent these beautiful wines in Missouri,” Soare added.
Smith-Madrone’s current releases, all estate-grown fruit from vineyards surrounding the winery at the top of the Spring Mountain District appellation in the northern Napa Valley, are 2017 Riesling, 2017 Chardonnay, 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2016 Cook’s Flat Reserve.
“Doing things the easy way has never been the Smith-Madrone way,” Stu Smith says. “Whether it’s digging boulders out of the mountain to make way for our vines or farming slopes up to 34%, our goals, our passion, our life is to grow the very best grapes, whatever the hardships. We know that only the best wine comes from the best grapes, and we were inspired when we began by the saying ‘Bacchus amat colles,’ that Bacchus loves the hills,” he adds.
Smith-Madrone is one of Napa Valley’s authentically artisanal wineries, founded in 1971 by Stuart Smith. Winemaking and grape-growing are handled entirely by the two brother-proprietors, Stuart and Charles Smith. All of Smith-Madrone’s wines come from the 38 acres of estate vineyards surrounding the winery, originally planted 48 years ago by Stuart and Charles. The vineyards extend across steep mountainsides, at steep slopes at elevations between 1,300 and 1,900 feet. Total production each year is less than 4,000 cases. More at www.smithmadrone.com.
