Perched on the historic Stanly Ranch, Starmont’s tasting room is bright and airy, swathed in distressed wood and white walls. The modern vibe carries through to its green production methods: The winery recycles all its process water, diverts 98 percent of its waste from landfills, and uses solar energy. In the summer, the winery throws lively parties, including weekly “socials” with food trucks and live music. (The fire pit-equipped patio is a prime spot to soak up the scene.) Starmont is best known for its Chardonnay—it started out making that single varietal—but has since branched out into Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Rose, and Pinot Noir.
