History & Geography
Little Straw Vineyards is a family-owned winery established in 1996. The Slamka family planted their first vineyard in 1969 with the intention of selling grapes to large commercial wineries. By 1996, the three Slamka sons had established their own winery. Wines vinted from the hot summer grapes of 1994 made up our first commercial releases. New vineyard blocks have been added or replanted over time, allowing us to try new varieties in our search for those best suited to our 12 acre parcel. This combination of growing techniques, modern wine making practices, and maturing vines works to create the unique character of our wines.
