Ken Starr learned the art of making wine by his father's side in 1952. When stationed in Europe in the early 60's, Ken visited many wineries and appreciated the German style of wine making. He started making wine on his own from 1966 to 1977.
In 1994 he purchased property in Curwensville, Pennsylvania and planted 12 vines. By 1998 there were 3000 vines… Concord, Niagara, Traminette, Foch and Leon Millot. He built a winery in 1998 and started making wine again. The wine was good prompting him to go commercial in 2005. He has now brought the Old World Ambiance to Curwensville, Pennsylvania.
Today the romance and the talent are passing once again to Ken's son and his sons, now four Generations of wine makers and the tradition continues.
