Starfield Vineyards planted 31 acres of grapes on their hillside vineyards east of Placerville, choosing only varieties which grow in southern Europe near the Mediterranean Sea. These Rhône, Italian and Spanish varieties are traditionally grown on rocky hillsides in warm Mediterranean climates. There they produce delicate, floral white wines, and savory, robust red wines. These varieties are called their “Mountain Mediterraneans.”
They also have planted seventeen different varieties in twenty-four blocks of roughly 1.5 acres each. That small block size allows placement of each variety in its preferred microclimate, while allowing an entire block to ripen evenly, so they can harvest each variety at optimum maturity.
Daily Portfolio Tastings will not be available until construction of the Tasting Room Bar and Patio has been completed. This experience is only available at our Tasting Room Bar and Patio.
