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, over 30 years later, led by the Schlatter Family and Winemaker Jeff Crawford, Starmont is producing some of their best wines ever.

Sauvignon Blanc, lake county


Our goal for Starmont Sauvignon Blanc is complexity on the nose with fresh aromas and flavors highlighted by citrus, floral and tropical notes. The 2022 has notes of lime zest, kiwi, guava and honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine opens with a zesty pop and settles into a bit of creaminess on the mid-palate from the neutral barrel fermentation, then finishes quite brightly with green citrus notes that are long and pleasing. This wine can be enjoyed either on its own or with food and is meant to drink in its youth.

chardonnay, tri-county


Starmont Chardonnay is crafted to enjoy with food or simply by the glass. Our aim is to retain the focus on the unique Chardonnay fruit expression from some of California’s top cool climate winegrowing regions. Aromas of citrus notes of lemon zest with apricot stone fruit exude from the glass, the florality of white rose and slight herbal character of lemon grass all combine to create an extremely complex nose. On the palate the wine is generous with a creamy mid-palate pointing to the sur lie aging, but the cool climate growing regions are showcased with fresh acidity that leaves a crisp, lingering finish. A beautiful and well-balanced Chardonnay. 

pinot noir, tri-county


Our goal for Starmont Pinot Noir is varietal typicity and balance, with just the right amount of restraint to achieve a fresh, elegant example of Pinot Noir from California’s top cool climate winegrowing regions. The 2021 brings through bright red cherry aromas that are complimented by a subtle herbal undertone of fresh fennel and mushroom laden forest floor all of which are nicely framed by a hint of cigar box pointing to the light use of new French oak. The palate displays a fresh brightness with a bit of structure provided by soft tannins on the mid-palate and then develops into a long, pleasing finish.

cabernet sauvignon, north coast


Our goal for Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon is richness and balance, with just the right amount of restraint to achieve a fresh, elegant example of Cabernet Sauvignon from California’s North Coast winegrowing region. A complex medley of aromatics ranging from crushed mixed berries and fresh rhubarb to savory elements of dried sage and white pepper, all of which are underpinned by a dark chocolate note. On the palate, the wine begins with a focused precision that gives way to plush density on the mid-palate which is framed by round tannins that melt into a long, juicy finish.
