CCL PRIVATE TASTING

CCL translates to 250 in Roman Numerals, signifying the Dierberg Family’s dedication to producing world-class wines from Santa Barbara County for 250 years. The Family has hand-selected a single-block from each of our three vineyard sites, and produces just one barrel of each vintage of our ‘Ty’ Pinot Noir from the Sta Rita Hills AVA, ‘Steven’ Pinot Noir from the Santa Maria Valley AVA, and ‘Star’ Cabernet Sauvignon from the Happy Canyon AVA.
