About Storrs Winery

Hand-Harvested from sustainably farmed vineyards throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, Storrs wines fully express the varietal intensity and minerality of mountain viticulture while displaying the exquisite balance yielded from our coastal terroir.

At Storrs, with each new day, we strive to make the best, ever better. This thinking extends not only to each and every barrel, but to those choices along life's path that move us daily from the expected to the exceptional.

Stephen Storrs and Pamela Bianchini-Storrs began Storrs Winery with the harvest of 1988. Both trained as winemakers at UC Davis, they worked at a number of wineries including Domaine Chandon, Felton-Empire Vineyards, and Almaden prior to starting their own. With their first vintage, they focused on the unique appellation in their backyard – the Santa Cruz Mountains. Having worked in this terrain for years, they appreciated the cool climate's Burgundian advantage. They quickly grew to a comfortable 10,000 cases per year and in 2001 realized a dream with the purchase of land in the Pleasant Valley district of Corralitos on the western foothills of Mount Madonna in the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. Over the next six years, they prepped the land for the organically-farmed vineyard that they planted in the summer of 2007. Their estate vineyard which they call Hidden Springs consists of two clones of Chardonnay – Clones 4 and 17; and five clones of Pinot Noir including the Dijon clones of 115, 667, 828 as well as Clone 2A and the Pommard clone. They are currently considering Bio-dynamic certification to recognize their conservation efforts on behalf of wildlife, soil & water on their farm and their flock of Olde English Babydoll sheep that graze their vineyard during the winter months to promote a more balanced, self-sustaining system.
