Stargazer Barns Winery's two new wines

Humboldt County’s Stargazer Barn winery has introduced two new wines that will help support Humboldt State University.

Lumberjack Red and Lumberjack White are special, limited production blends made entirely of Humboldt-grown grapes.

The wines were introduced at the University’s annual Honors Dinner in April, and are now available at Wildberries in Arcata and online at the Stargazer Barn website ( They are expected to be available in other local stores soon.

A portion of every bottle sold will be given to the Humboldt Loyalty Fund, which supports the student experience at HSU with laboratory equipment, new technology, special projects, and more.

Stargazer Barn winery is located near Willow Creek and is part of The Sun Valley Floral Farm. It produces small-batch, handcrafted wines from Humboldt County grapes, and also sells collections featuring flowers and other local artisanal products that can be delivered across the country.

The winemaker, Wil Franklin, is an alumnus of Humboldt State University.

“I had great professors and a great education at HSU,” Franklin says. “So I really appreciate that Stargazer Barn was able to do this. It’s a way I can use my skills to give back and support the University.”
