2010 – Our very first Carnivus celebrated our Friends and Family in a small intimate setting. What better way to say 'Thank You' than a 10 year vertical tasting in the historic 1918 Farmhouse and a roasted 'blessed' pig under the Stonehouse Arbor sharing stories of Crocker & Starr.
2011 – With Crocker & Starr's growing family and friends we held our second Carnivus, this time we had 120 guest! Keeping how our 2010 Carnivus went we held a vertical tasting, roasted pig and made new friends.
2012 – The first Party like a #rockstarr had begun! Food from local purveyors such as Zuzu with Paella, Hog Island Oysters paired wonderfully with our Sauvignon Blanc and of course the pig, brought to us by Smoke. Oh and don't forget you can't have Carnivus without the live band to get you dancing and The Cajun Coyotes made it happen.
2013 - Growing in popularity of course our tent had to get larger. We had cabanas and Cornhole tournatment. It's not a party without games to compete with our fellow family members.
2014 - The growth of Carnivus for the past 3 years was felt you had to be at this party. Food, games, dancing and plenty of wines pouring made it a great 2013.
2015 - The year we added MAXIMUS to Carnivus made sure to win its way into the history books. Library wines pouring as we danced the day with Sow Belly Trio.
2016 - Our 20th Anniversary was the party to be at! With over 37 wines flowing and Sow Belly Trio playing great hits to dance to made this SPECTACULAR! Our first ever party with 400 of our amazing Family and Friends.
2017 - Our 21st Anniversary and Second year in our estate winery. Over 420 fans made this year just as memorable as our 20th anniversary. Thank you all for joining the fun, the games, the food, the even vintages of our library and for celebrating with style.
2018 - Our 22nd year as Crocker & Starr Winery. Expectations are high and we are setting the bar even higher. Join the library tasting as we pop corks on 'odd' year vintages of our library cab franc and stone place cabernet!
