Private Tour & Tasting Experience

Star Lane Vineyard is a Private Estate & is available for privately hosted tours and tastings by appointment only.

Our curated Estate Tour and Tasting Experience showcases the splendor of the Santa Ynez Valley and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the magic and beauty of our Star Lane Vineyard, Winery & Caves. The 120-minute signature journey begins with a tour of our expansive wine-making facility where guests will experience awe-inspiring views of one of Santa Barbara County’s most historic private ranches.

Next, we’ll enjoy an in-depth tour of our caves and barrel rooms, where we’ll stop to enjoy a sneak peek of a future release right from the barrel. We’ll conclude the tour in the “Grand Courtyard” and enjoy an alfresco seated tasting experience featuring a collection of hand-selected offerings of limited production Pinot Noir and Cabernet from our three Estate Vineyards, including a library release straight from The Dierberg Family wine cellar. All wines are paired with specialty cheeses hand-selected by Winemaker Tyler Thomas.
