Wine maker notes
Stella Maris is Latin for Star of the Sea. With the lots that dont make our Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Merlots, our winemaker follows the Bordeaux tradition of making a ‘declassified wine, and creates Stella Maris.

Producer
“Just as the North Star has been used through the ages as a directional guide, Northstar Winery was established in the early 1990s to guide the creation of world-class Merlot-based wines that demonstrate the potential of the variety in Washington State. The region has since been recognized as one of the worlds most exciting and acclaimed regions for Merlot. Washington lies at the same latitude as the Bordeaux region in France, yet has the additional benefit of a longer growing season and cooler nighttime temperatures. These characteristics aid in the even ripening of grapes and the locking in of acidity, resulting in full-bodied yet balanced Merlots. Northstars first vintage was in 1994 and the state-of-the-art winery was built in 2002. In its earliest years, Northstar was guided by celebrated California winemaker Jed Steele, who worked extensively with our current winemaker, David “Merf Merfeld, head Winemaker since 2005. Now leading the way, and with access to the top 2% of Columbia and Walla Walla Valleys finest Merlot grapes, Merf is creating wines of great distinction and acclaim.
