Dierberg | Star Lane | Three Saints

1996 was a great year for the Dierbergs. After spending 40 years making wine in the renowned area of Hermann, Missouri, one of the United States’ most significant wine-growing regions prior to Prohibition, Jim and Mary Dierberg set their sights on acquiring the perfect location for their next estate. In search of the ideal region, they finally struck gold in the valleys of Santa Barbara in 1996. The Dierbergs knew immediately they had discovered something truly special. Located at the far eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley, the 4,000-acre property consists of both the warmest and highest elevation vineyard in the Happy Canyon appellation.

Today, the entire operation is one big family affair, with the Dierbergs’ grown children and their spouses dedicated to the day-to-day operations of the vineyard and winery. The Dierberg family work closely with winemaker Tyler Thomas, who started with Dierberg and Star Lane Vineyards in the Summer of 2013. Thomas has one mission, “My goal is to make wines that please by their compelling nature. That is you find yourself both hedonistically and intellectually compelled to go back to the wine over and over again. Many wines can draw your first glance, but I want one that can sustain your desire.” Read more about the Dierberg story and see amazing footage of the vineyards here.
