placerville property

We are currently planting 30 acres of Mediterranean varieties on the hillsides above Smith Flat. These Rhône and Italian varieties will become available to us in the 2016 vintage after their "third leaf." 

We envision this to be a year-round wine destination when we open our doors to the public in February of 2018. Walking trails meander alongside vineyards connecting the winery with a Lake Pavilion, rose arbor, tree-lined amphitheater, Turtle Pond, and wooded areas planted with rhododendrons, dogwoods, wildflowers and seasonal foliage.
Starfield Vineyards estate property is located at the Gateway to Apple Hill just off exit 49 alongside Jacquier Road.

We will be blogging about the development of this land and posting photographs and videos as the project unfolds, so stay tuned.
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.
