In 2009, Starry Night Winery celebrates its tenth anniversary as a bonded winery! At Starry Night Winery, our goal is to produce the finest wines possible that accentuate the regions from where the grapes are best grown. We currently produce Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandels from the Russian River Valley, a Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley, Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley as well as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Rhone varietals from the Lodi appellation. This year we will be releasing our first vineyard designated Zinfandel from Nervo Station Vineyard in Alexander Valley. The grapes for this wine come from two blocks planted in 1896. In our first year we produced fewer than 1200 cases. Since then we have grown a bit each year and have leveled off our production to about 14,000 cases. Most of our wines are produced in quantities of less than 1,000 cases. By keeping our production small, we are able to pay attention to every detail in the winemaking process and allow the grapes Read more »

  • Where you drink wine can be important. An overheated or too noisy room or city stress can downgrade the pleasures of even a very good wine.  Conversely, tranquility that allows you to focus on what’s in your glass can upgrade even a so-so sipper.

  • Starry Night Winery Alexander Valley Old Vine Zinfandel Nervo Station Vineyard 2007


    Dark, creamy blackberry fruit is accented by top notes of licorice and smoke. This has a distinct caramel oak note running through it, as well giving the nose a rather patisserie quality to it. Seamless in the mouth, this is wonderfully well balanced with good acidity that slips by almost unnoticed and tannins that are merely a frame for the lov... Read More

    Wine review by rugbydan14

  • New here.  I have "inherited" some red wines which vary in vintage from 1981 onward.  How do I find out information regarding when these wines are best consumed?  I don't want to miss the best times to enjoy these wines but feel a bit lost and overwhelmed trying to find information. Thanks, and really appreciate any advice.  This might not be wh... Read More
