It is with great excitement that we share some of the recent high honors and accolades Sierra Starr has received. Our hand-crafted wines have been recognized in several important competitions and won high marks from major industry publications.

Despite a very competitive field, 5 of the 6 wines we entered won Gold or better, including 3 Double Gold. Leading industry publication Wine Enthusiast magazine gave our 2012 Rising Starr Cabernet Franc Estate Wine a 90 point score. Sierra Starr owner Phil Starr said: “We are honored to be recognized by such a distinguished group of judges and can’t wait to share these award-winning vintages with the most important judges of all – our fellow wine lovers.”
