In 1996, with forty years of winemaking experience, Jim and Mary Dierberg's dream of producing wines worthy of their 250 year plan became a reality. After a long search through France and Napa, while learning the craft and making wine in the mid-west, they discovered the potential of Santa Barbara's cool coastal valleys. The family planted two estates -first their namesake Dierberg Vineyard and later Drum Canyon Vineyard - both under their Dierberg label. These estates, along with the family's iconic warm climate site Star Lane Vineyard, culminated in a trio of peerless properties in Santa Barbara County.
There's a great deal of responsibility that comes along with owning such precious pieces of the California landscape, one that the Dierbergs are deeply committed to. Dierberg Vineyard has a steady focus on sustainability and an understanding of how their stewardship of the land will affect future generations. "We want to continue the long tradition of preserving a place where agriculture coexists in harmony with nature," says Jim Dierberg. "Our goal is to leave our vineyards in better shape than they were when we bought them years ago."

Dierberg Pinot Noir 2016

Both vintages share a purity of fruit expression and freshness that we adore from Dierberg Vineyard. 2016, however, elevates itself into a fruity realm, showing more dark cherry qualities than the earthy notes common from Dierberg. As such, its flavor profile has kinship ... more

Dierberg Chardonnay 2014
2014 continues the trend (since 2012) of limited moisture, marked by warm springs and moderate summers. While 2014's ripening period was earlier and warmer than others - finishing maturity in August/September instead of September/October - grape quality developed evenly. In fact, the hang time from flowering to full maturity was ... more
