Private Tour & Tasting Experience


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


Star Lane Vineyard is the premier wine estate in the appellation, which is the most important new appellation for Cabernet Sauvignon in America. The estate is open on a limited basis and by appointment only. Planted to two-hundred acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties by the Dierberg family in 1996, Star Lane Vineyard is a family-owned and operated estate that is under its second generation of family leadership. The majestic gravity-flow winery at Star Lane Vineyard is also home to the only subterranean wine caves in Santa Barbara County. For the past decade, winemaking has been led by Tyler Thomas—who apprenticed with Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame at the renowned Hyde de Villaine project in Napa Valley. The estate’s flagship and limited-production Astral Cabernet has garnered praise from the critics, being described as “endowed with superb richness in every dimension.” Says Jeb Dunnuck, “Star Lane Vineyard is straight-up pure class.”
