Storrs Winery and Vineyards
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.
