Starmont Winery makes its home on a portion of the historic Stanly Ranch on the Napa side of Carneros that was established as a wine-growing region over 150 years ago. From the time Starmont first appeared on a label in 1989, the name has been recognized for classically styled varietal wines that are expressive and approachable. Now, nearly 30 years later, led by Winemaker Jeff Crawford Starmont is producing some of their best wines ever as part of the Merryvale Family of Wines. Focused on sustainability and making the highest quality wines, the Starmont Winery and surrounding estate vineyards have been Napa Green Certified since 2007.

Family Friendly Winery
With both indoor and outdoor seating areas, the Starmont Tasting Room offers room for families to enjoy vineyard views and the typically moderate Carneros weather. The lawn area is available for Giant Jenga, Cornhole and other family-friendly games, while coloring books and other activities are available indoors. A selection of healthy snacks and beverages are available for children while parents enjoy a variety of wine tasting flights.
Starmont’s tasting room is located adjacent to the winery’s state-of-the-art production facility that is situated on the southeastern corner of Napa Valley’s Carneros region, and built alongside the historic Stanly Ranch Estate vineyard. Starmont Winery and Vineyards is an amalgam of the old and new. A longtime vision of the Schlatter Family, proprietors of Starmont, the tasting room was designed by San Francisco-based BAR Architects, who also provided design and construction services for the original production building completed in 2006. The Schlatter’s vision has resulted in a mixture of modern, clean designs with a strong sense of environmental responsibility and respect for the inherent beauty of the land.
Starmont Winery’s tasting room blends seamlessly into the existing agrarian landscape of rural buildings. Peaked roofs, wide eaves, and metal trimmed siding create a modern farmhouse feel. The design feature also includes natural lighting throughout, with large glass doors opening to a central courtyard allowing for proximity to the picturesque surroundings of rolling hills, vineyards and gardens. Seating in the courtyard invites guests to linger, commune with the land and experience the historic growing region among the vines.
A fitting gateway for visitors arriving to Napa Valley, Starmont Winery’s tasting room exemplifies the region’s rich history in cultivating wine grapes. Wine tasting experiences for visitors includes a Historic Stanly Ranch Tour, offering a walk through the vineyards where, in the1950s, Louis Martini, the Wente family and UC Davis conducted groundbreaking clonal trials on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In addition, Starmont’s estate wines – Starmont Stanly Ranch Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Syrah and Viognier – are available for purchase through sample tastings or by the bottle. Seated wine tastings are available everyday, from 10 am to 5 pm (excluding major holidays).
