Crocker & Starr Winery

In 1997, Charlie Crocker and Pam Starr established Crocker & Starr, resurrecting a vineyard with roots going back to the 1870s. With Charlie’s 100-acre estate vineyard on farmland that has grown grapes for over 140 years and Pam’s winemaking expertise, vision and business acumen, the partners proved to be a spectacular match. Charlie is co-owner with Pam, the winery manager and winemaker.

Crocker & Starr handcrafts a small production of exquisite, world-class wines from their organic vineyard estate in St. Helena. Charlie and Pam's commitment to sustainable and organic farming techniques combined with cutting edge winemaking tools and guided by expert hands come together to combine the best of both old world philosophy and new world fruit. Winemaker and co-owner Pam Starr crafts the estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc to capture the essence of the extraordinary terroir of the vineyard.

Crocker & Starr was thus founded on a strong heritage of credibility. Not just with the classic elements: great land, wonderful grapes, winemaking passion (not to mention wonderful ratings for the wines). It’s all there. But Crocker & Starr is more, representing a long winemaking history in land and original Napa stone architecture. Crocker & Starr is serious about their wines but they also know how to have fun. The new estate winery, built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Crocker & Starr in 2016, represents the forward-thinking philosophy of its founders - as science and technology are the foundation for constantly improving on what nature has blessed them with.

Vineyard Experience
Our personalized Vineyard Experience starts off the beaten path in the bucolic country setting of our 1918 restored farmhouse with a sip of Sauvignon Blanc. Our guests then stroll into our vineyard for the rare opportunity to see and touch our organically grown vines and grapes. From the vineyards we move onwards to our Garden Arbor & Stone House for a seated presentation of our small production estate red wines. At the centerpiece of the tasting are magnificent tables hand crafted from walnut and oak trees on the Estate. Approximately 50 minutes.
Al Fresco Experience
Designed to highlight the diverse flavor profiles of Crocker & Starr wines, the Al Fresco Experience consists of our Vineyard Experience coupled with a guided pairing of artisan cheeses and charcuterie with our estate wines. This superb and generous presentation is hand selected by a local culinary expert specifically for Crocker & Starr. Approximately 90 minutes.
Farmhouse Porch Experience
Reserved for guests who have a limited amount of time, our Farmhouse Porch experience is an intimate tasting and conversation on the porch of our 1918 restored farmhouse adjacent to the Crocker & Starr Vineyards. Approximately 25 minutes.
