On The Spotlight

April 11, 2016

Presenting

Starfield Vineyards

Coombsville AVA

 

“Father and son team, Tom and Rob Sinton, bring to Starfield four generations of family wine growing experience combined with an intense desire to reach beyond traditional boundaries to pursue the ultimate quality in cool climate winemaking.”

It is seldom that one gets a second chance to do what one wants and become incredibly successful in the process. Tom Sinton, 67, is one of those rare individuals who can point out that it has happened to him.

After selling his business in 2010, Tom vowed to return to his first true love, the wine industry. Tom had always had a desire to make Cabernet Sauvignon and so he searched in vain for property to buy in Napa Valley, the home of great Cabernets.

Tom was not able to find the type of property he wanted, so he moved to the Sierra Foothills where he finally settled on a piece of property near the city of Placerville. The plot was around 31 acres and would provide quality fruit. It was hilly, filled with rocks and the soil toward the poor side. With the growing season much shorter than other regions, the vines would have to work very hard.

Sinton, to begin his new winery, went down a path that few winemakers have tried. He worked very closely with French winemakers and came out of it with two excellent blends, St. Emilion and Medoc. “It was a novel experience,” he professed. “I saw the French approach to winemaking and I felt I could use it in making my wines.”

 

The first release of Starfield Vineyards came in 2013 and amounted to a little under 300 cases.

 

Rob Sinton

“In 2011, Rob, who was inspired by his father’s dream, began developing the skills needed to work in the family business.  Rob was first introduced to fermentation science in 2006 through home-brewing (pumpkin beer was a particular favorite!); now, years later, he has completed his studies in viticulture and enology at UC Davis, interned at Keever Vineyards in the Napa Valley, and become a partner in the company.  It took just one summer making wine in Napa with his father to change his major at Davis from molecular biology to viticulture and enology!”

 

This concludes the Spotlight Series.
