WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
The history of Star Lane goes back to
the Spanish colonization of California in
the early 1800s. After a series of owners,
Star Lane was purchased by Elmer
Rhoden, owner of 600 movie theatres
countrywide, who began breeding
horses and entertaining movie stars. One
of the ranch’s horses became Roy Rogers’
Trigger.
Jim and Mary Dierberg purchased the
Star Lane Ranch in 1996 as the place they
wanted to build their winery and plant
their vineyard. They couldn’t have chosen
better. As it turned out, they were in the
middle of what would become Sta. Rita
Hills, now the most sought-after region
in the Central Coast. They had originally
searched for a site in Napa, but fell in love
with Star Lane, a former dude ranch. It
was the perfect place.
They kept their streak going when,
in 2013, they hired Tyler Thomas as
their winemaker. Tyler had worked at
Fiddlehead Cellars crafting some of
the most heralded wines in California.
He then went on to Sonoma, but was
thrilled to return home to Santa Barbara
County with Star Lane.
Today, it is wine that’s the talk of the town,
and this one is certainly a conversation
piece. The grapes come from the former
name of Star Lane, Happy Canyon, which
is now in a different location.
Here is gripping, sensual Sauvignon
Blanc at its best. Kiwi, peach and citrus
abound here and never give up.
