Calstar Cellars - Sonoma County

Platinum Plus! selection - 91 Points, Connoisseurs’ Guide - Best of Class

Rick Davis is no rookie to the wine business. With over twenty years of winemaking experience under his belt, Rick has close relationships with some of California’s top wine producers and growers, and has played a major role in crafting award- winning wines for such notable estates as Flowers Winery, Londer Vineyards, Halleck Vineyards, La Czar Vineyards and Alcina Cellars.

Rick developed Calstar Cellars with his wife in 1999 as an extension of these relationships, and continues to focus on the Sonoma Coast appellation with its highly desirable cool-climate varietals. Rick has always been an artist in some form or another, studying regional planning at the University of Pennsylvania and then moving into a career as a leather artisan before following his gourmet food fascination and finding his way to wine.

In the wine industry, Rick has found his perfect balance of craftsmanship, sensory experiences, and life sciences and couldn’t be happier with the accomplishment of his own winery. Calstar Cellars gets its name, by the way, from Rick’s two cats, Callie and Star, who were around when the new winery first got under way.

Rick would store his just-bottled wines under a tree in the backyard – a tree that Callie and Star began favoring as their new “hang out” spot as well. It seemed fitting, and memorable, to name the new venture Cal-Star after his supportive four-legged friends!

The Davis’ hope that their wines find a home in your heats just as these two neighborhood cats found one in theirs. Cheers
