Crocker & Starr handcrafts a small production of exquisite, world-class wines from our historic vineyard estate in St. Helena. The winery’s namesake represents the two key elements to achieve great wine: great grapes and great talent. The commitment to sustainable farming techniques combined with cutting edge winemaking tools make the best of both old world philosophy with new world fruit. Winemaker Pam Starr ‘designs’ the estate wines to capture the essence of the extraordinary terroir of the vineyard.
The Vineyard Experience
Crocker & Starr’s personalized and private Vineyard Experience begins in the bucolic country setting of our 1918 restored farmhouse with a taste of an estate wine. Guests are led into the vineyard for the opportunity to see and touch the organically grown vines while they learn about Crocker & Starr’s history and continued stewardship of the land. Next, guests are taken into the state-of-the-art winery for a discussion on Crocker & Starr’s winemaking practices. Guests are then escorted under the Garden Arbor or into the Stone House for a seated presentation of Crocker & Starr’s small production estate red wines.
