Sierra Starr

Sierra Starr Vineyard and Winery is a small family run operation. Everything includes growing the grapes as well as making the wine and all things associated with these endeavors. We have bottled some nice wines from our first vintage that we are proud of. The years to come hold the challenges of learning even more about this art as we expand our operation.

Planted in 1979 and 1980, the Sierra Starr Vineyard consists of 5 acres of Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. An additional acre of Cab Franc was planted in the summer of 1998. We lease another 5 acre vineyard which has Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Chardonnay. Most of our wines are produced from estate grown grapes. Being small allows us to pay special attention to the entire process from start to finish.
Vineyard Tasting and Tours. Sierra Starr Vineyard & Winery has a tasting room. We are open from noon to five, sometimes later, everyday except Tuesday. Bring 10 or more in your group and get a personal tour from Owner and Wine Maker Phil Starr. You'll taste our wines, see our wines aging in the wine cave, and tour the vineyard. Bring a picnic and blanket or chairs to relax on our lawns.
Our Wines:
-  Starr Bright Champagne. Fresh, fruity, slightly sweet. This Sierra Starr Brut California Champagne is a truly fun Bubbly and is great for any occasion or celebration. 
- Solstice Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has really turned some heads. With a huge Citrus and Grapefruit expression it is very crisp and fruity. This wine is proving to be so popular that we are currently in the process of expanding our production of these grapes.
- Celestial Chardonnay. This wine was fermented in 100% new oak. This wine also undergoes what is called sure lee aging with stirring. This process creates a creamy mouth feel.
- Zinfandel. Our home vineyard produces truly fine food Zinfandels of extraordinary balance without going over the top stylistically. We barrel aged our Zinfandels for up to 22 months in American and French oak cooperage. We happen to think it goes great with pizza!
- Cabernet Sauvignon. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a full bodied 100% Cab.  It has benefited from nearly 2 years in French oak in barrel tasting, the French oak wins so we will use more French oak in aging future vintages.  This wine shows classic Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with firm acids and medium tannin levels. 
- Milky Way Merlot. Our small home Merlot vineyard produces grapes that make a wine that is very structured, fruity and firm. This is not a flabby Merlot that disappears in the presence of food.
- Five Starr Port. The blend contains approximately 80% of a 1999 Portuguese blend to which we add some of our Estate Zinfandel and Cabernet Port's. This blend is aged in a 338 gallon German made oak oval.  This wine will change slowly over time, rather than abruptly from vintage to vintage.
Fine Wine, Fun People, Starr Quality!
