Deanna Starr

Deanna worked in healthcare for over 20 years, starting out as a Registered Nurse, then spent many years in management for physician medical groups and home healthcare. All of that chemistry background comes in very handy – analyzing wine for just the right balance of components. Besides having had long time interest in wine and winemaking, she is also a gourmet cook who is using her tastebuds to creating flavorful, memorable wines – leaving you always wanting to come back for seconds!

The Starrs love of wine has led them to collecting fine wines. They have an extensive personal cellar and have a passion for Port.

The winery’s name has changed back to the original name of Milano. Many of you may have known the winery as Milone. The winery has operated continuously in the old hop kiln since 1977. The winery produces small lots of handcrafted wines using traditional methods. New creations, in addition to their signature Cabernets and Zinfandels, include Carignane, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet/Syrah blend, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Late Harvest Zin, Port and more.
