Crocker & Starr Joins Third Annual Napa in Newport To Save the Lives of Children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
St. Helena, CA, March 2, 2017 – Crocker & Starr will join 30 distinguished wineries for celebration of Napa Valley wines to help save the lives of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The much-anticipated Third Annual Napa in Newport Wine Auction will take place on March 4th at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Southern California’s premier wine event, Napa in Newport, unites more than 30 renowned vintners and wine enthusiasts to help find a cure for Duchenne, a fatal genetic disease that robs children and young adults of their muscle strength and claims their lives by their mid-20s. All proceeds from the evening will benefit CureDuchenne, the national organization committed to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Crocker & Starr will be pouring its 2015 Sauvignon Blanc and 2014 Cabernet Franc for more than 350 prominent guests, for an incredible night of support for CureDuchenne.
“Crocker & Starr is a small team that is very much like a family and we believe in giving back and helping other families. The reality is that Duchenne could affect someone in our lives at any time and we are grateful to have an opportunity to participate in such an impactful and meaningful event,” said Pam Starr, winemaker and co-proprietor of Crocker & Starr.
Napa in Newport will include a three-course dinner created by renowned Chef Amar Santana of the celebrated Broadway andVaca restaurants. Chef Amar has traveled the world collecting inspiration and accolades, including a position in the final round of Bravo’s Top Chef. His globally influenced menus include unexpected flavor profiles and artful presentations, reflecting his zeal for food and for life.

About Crocker & Starr
In 1997, Charlie Crocker and Pam Starr established Crocker & Starr on the Crocker Estate in St. Helena, resurrecting a world-class vineyard with roots dating back to the 1870s. The winery handcrafts a small production of exquisite wines from select blocks within the 100-acre vineyard. The vines are cultivated following organic principles, and the clusters are hand harvested, transformed into wine through cutting edge winemaking techniques, blending the best of Old World philosophy and New World fruit. Starr presides over the estate’s wines to capture the essence of the vineyard’s extraordinary terroir. The result is complex and balanced, elegant wines that express the aromatic profile of the Crocker Vineyard.
