Vineyards bursting with color

This is an exciting time in the vineyards as the countdown to harvest begins. Our vineyards are completing veraison, all at different times and we are doing our best to create the optimal conditions for peak ripeness in the grapes. We experienced hot days and balmy evenings in July, but now the shorter days of August are bringing our temperatures down to ideal weather for ripening.     

Starfield Vineyards is an artisanal producer of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot  from the cooler hillsides of Napa Valley and Bordeaux, France.  Inspired by the “star fields” that make extraordinary wines possible in these world-renowned regions, Starfield celebrates the truly great vineyard sites that allow Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to develop the optimal balance of aroma, flavor and texture.  Father and son team, Tom and Rob Sinton, bring to Starfield four generations of winegrowing experience and an intense desire to reach beyond traditional boundaries to pursue the ultimate quality in cool climate winemaking.
