  • About
    Dark Star was established in 1994. We are conveniently located just two miles west of the 101, just off of the 46 on Anderson Road.

    Dark Star makes small lots of premium, hand-crafted wines, including traditional Bordeaux and Rhône styles, creative California blends, and some things not everyone has: Montepulciano, Tempranillo, Viognier, Roussanne, Rosé of Grenache and a Port. Our menu presently includes about twenty different varietals and blends.

    Drop by and visit our spacious indoor tasting room and outdoor patio, both with comfortable seating. Bring your own picnic and enjoy wine by the glass, or Dark Star snacks if it is your lucky day.

    Dark Star is pet and family friendly. Check out our observation beehive, ax throwing pitch, free-range chickens and winery cats. Taste eight-ish wines for a ten-dollar tasting fee, waived with a bottle purchase. Check the darkstarcellars.com "events" page for our regular music events and parties.
