El Molino was founded in 1871 and was one of the first wineries in the Napa Valley. It operated until Prohibition and was restored in 1981. The 66-acre estate Star Vineyard, first planted in 1978, is located in a unique microclimate ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Located between Highway 29 and the Napa River, El Molino is just south of Beaulieu No. 1.

The grapes are grown at Star Vineyard in Rutherford where the Chardonnay was planted in 1978 and the first Pinot Noir block in 1991. A Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir made from purchased grapes was added in the 2009 vintage. Production is 1,700 cases of wine a year.
