Learn more about the California Vineyards:
Dierberg Estate Vineyards lie very close to the Pacific Ocean in California's Central Coast wine region. The vineyards provide both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for Dierberg Estate wines. In 1997, Mary and Jim Dierberg planted the first vineyard near the town of Santa Maria. Seven years later, they planted a second vineyard in what is known as Drum Canyon, south of Santa Maria, in the Santa Rita Hills. Our coastal environment provides a combination of sunny days, maritime breezes and well drained soils, perfectly suited to cool climate viticulture.
Star Lane Vineyards located at the far eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley, is both the warmest and the highest elevation vineyard in the appellation. Backing up to the lower slopes of the San Rafael Mountains, which loom high above the ranch, Star Lane unfolds itself in its own pristine valley. Traveling 22 degrees North by North East the Star Lane vineyard blocks climb from the canyon floor to the benchlands above and, ultimately to the highest mountain tops sites-each area contributing a unique element to the resulting wines.
Three Saints wines are a vivid expression of carefully selected grapes from the Dierberg Family's vineyards which are located in three of Santa Barbara County's premium wine growing regions:
Santa Maria Valley, Santa Rita Hills and Santa Ynez Valley.
