The Dierberg family traces their winemaking roots to early 1900s Missouri in America's first denominated wine appellation. The Santa Barbara estate was planted by the family in 1996. Dierberg Vineyards are made of specific estate terroirs emerging from a single, long term, and sustainable family vision for wine and land stewardship. The family's Pinot Noir vineyards lie within the coastal terroir of Santa Rita Hills. Of French and Missouri heritage, winemaker Tyler Thomas apprenticed with Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame. Mr. Thomas has been leading the transformation at Dierberg Vineyards since 2013, guiding the wines to become widely recognized for their consistency and pedigree and garnering the attention of the press. Antonio Galloni of Vinous, for example, states that Dierberg Pinot Noirs show “stunning precision and impeccable balance."
