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.

For Dierberg and Drum Canyon Vineyard we witnessed remarkable concentration and freshness that is the goal of every estate every year. With full flavors but higher acidity the wine is veiled at first glance, but reveals subtle complexity which we?ve come to appreciate from Dierberg Vineyard: pear, citrus, and an almost fennel-like aromatic element. The palate is fresh but not without a generous mid-palate texture. The mouth feel seems to beg for a bit of age so that it sees weight added to its excellent frame. The length suggests age ability.
