In the Napa Valley's Carneros District, cooled by San Pablo Bay breezes, lies Adastra Vineyards. Nature has blessed Adastra with a unique combination of fog, soil, sun and stars. As stewards of the land, we strive to enhance these assets with a passionate commitment to winegrowing.
Adastra Wines is a family endeavor. Chris Thorpe and son-in-law Edwin Richards run the winery; Pam Starr is our winemaking consultant.
We took our name, Adastra, from the Latin phrase per aspera ad astra, "through striving to the stars," inspired by the brilliant Carneros night sky and our own stellar ambitions.
