With an inaugural vintage in 2021, Star Party sources grapes primarily from the Shenandoah Valley AVA to feature the best flavors of Virginia. They are committed to reducing environmental impacts throughout the winemaking process so that generations to come can enjoy quality wine under starry skies.
