Riverstar Vineyards

Riverstar Vineyards has been a fixture on the Pleasant Valley Wine Trail since 2001. Always family owned and operated, the Reinertson family has been continuing the Riverstar Vineyard traditions since 2016. Working with winemaker Steve Martell, the Riverstar team is carrying the big, bold and beautifully crafted wines forward through today and into the future.

There are 36 acres of grapes, cabernet sauvignon and sauvignon blanc, which are used to produce our wines. Current wine releases include rosé, petite sirah, zinfandel, syrah, unique red blends and dessert wines. Twenty-two acres of fruit were replanted in spring 2021 with syrah, petite sirah, tempranillo and zinfandel.

The wine is a big taste of all that Riverstar offers. Events, picnics, family gatherings and a vacation rental round out the wine tasting experience. Bring a picnic lunch for pairing with your favorite or a newly recommended Riverstar wine and enjoy the scenery.

Join the Stargazers Wine Club and get free tastings for you and your guests, great discounts on wine all year long, invitations to pick-up parties, winemaker dinners and special events and discounts for the vacation rental and merchandise. The wine club ships wine in May and December and you can choose a three, six or 12 bottle shipment and red or white wine or a mix of both.
