In 1993, Riverstar Vineyards was planted with three varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot, all planted on their own root in the loamy sand and gravel soils along the southern facing slopes of the Estrella River. In the vineyard today, we grow Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. We will be replanting 20 acres of the vineyard in spring 2021, with Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Tempranillo. Future wines to look forward to!
We are growing and sourcing the best fruit possible and making the wine in a way which respects the fruit and creates rich, full bodied reds and crisp, clean whites. The Reinertson family looks forward to sharing their wines with each visitor as they build on traditions and add their own family values and love for wine. Please come out and enjoy a day of wine tasting (or make it a weekend!) and delightful Central Coast weather on our beautiful vineyard.
