Watch the Wine Star Award Video of Founder David S. Stare, ‘American Wine Legend’

David S. Stare and Kim Stare Wallace


Just last night, Wine Enthusiast Magazine honored founder David S. Stare as their “American Wine Legend” at the annual Wine Star Awards. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we wanted to share this video with you that tells the inspiring story of Dave and our family winery.



Coming west in the late 1960s with little more than a dream to start his own winery, Dave’s work ethic and determination drove his early success and the incredible journey to who are today.

He was always a legend to us, so we are beyond grateful to see him recognized for all his pioneering “firsts,” and to raise a toast together!
