"I drink wine when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it—unless I’m thirsty." —-Madame Lilly Bollinger

Best. Life. Ever.

I’m writing this on a lull at the tasting room. It’s about 84 degrees out on this lovely Monday afternoon. Been pouring delicious vino for thirsty patrons since 10:30am (we open @ 11 :) with no signs of stopping! Everyone has been tasting outside at our Sta. Rita Hills tasting room. Laughing, reminiscing, eating and drinking.

Working for Dierberg and Star Lane Vineyards has been such a fantastic ride over the past 2 years. I have learned so much about the wine industry and it’s producers. I have made such amazing friends that I will have for a lifetime. I have pretty easy access to a myriad of amazingly talented wine makers in SBC—so if I ever have a specific question, comment or observation an answer/response is never hard to find!

Here’s to a beautiful day in Sta. Rita Hills! Cheers!
