Tyler Thomas

Tyler Thomas is President and Winemaker for Star Lane and Dierberg Vineyards based in Santa Barbara County. He loves wine growing because it is a nexus where our environment, plants, science, craftsmanship, artisans, family, and culture meet to give rise to simple if also profound pleasure. Therefore his biography is: fermenter, lover, father, disciple. He ferments things (grapes, wheat, cabbage), he is married with 3 kids, and he seeks to find that which is true.


Opening a Bottle is an independent online magazine focused on telling the story of unique wines, winemakers and wine regions.
