In 1996, with forty years of winemaking experience, Jim and Mary Dierberg’s dream of producing wines worthy of their 250 year plan became a reality. After a long search through France and Napa, while learning the craft and making wine in the mid-west, they discovered the potential of Santa Barbara’s cool coastal valleys. The family planted two estates - first their namesake Dierberg Vineyard and later Drum Canyon Vineyard - both under their DIERBERG label. These estates, along with the family’s iconic warm climate site Star Lane Vineyard, culminated in a trio of peerless properties in Santa Barbara County.

Driving upon the former dude and cattle ranch - Star Lane Ranch, Mary Dierberg recalled: “We immediately knew that we wanted this amazing ranch”. With wisdom from patience, a 250 year plan, the certainty of passion, and some of the best vineyard consultants in the business, the Dierbergs planted Star Lane Vineyard with Bordeaux varietals, based on their con dence in those grapes’ ability to soar in this unique microclimate.

  • My girlfriend and I visited in August and really loved it. The staff was very friendly and made the experience a great one. We sat outside on a beautiful sunny day, enjoying our tasting while taking in the beautiful view of the valley and hills. This is definitely going to be a mandatory stop when we're in the Solvang area.
  • SARA’S STOPS: Sipping away the afternoon at a beautiful winery in the Sta. Rita Hills west of Solvang. When you are up in the Solvang area make sure you head over to the Lompoc area to try some amazing wines. We just spent the most pleasant afternoon at Dierburg Star Lane Winery tasting room. The property was so beautiful inside and out. We loved sitting on the patio, which looked out over the beautiful garden and hillsides. The interior was spacious with lots of areas to sit and relax. Kristin was our wine pouring expert. She explained each tasting with amazing knowledge. She knew the area and soil makeup where each grape came from and the percentage used to make each varietal. The tasting included Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah.It was very hard to choose which was the best because they were all amazing.
