Ken Starr of Starr Hill Winery learned the art of wine-making by his father’s side in 1952. While in Europe in the 1960’s he appreciated and learned the German-style of wine-making and has brought that Old World ambience back to Curwensville Pennsylvania and the lovely Starr Hill Winery. As a new lifestyle product sponsor of FIREBALL RUN “Northern Exposure” Ken and Starr Hill Winery have produced a few special bottles for participants to taste and enjoy; in the form of Fireball Red and Adventurally White.


“We are excited about the opportunity for the Fireball Run Adventurally participants to sample our vintages and become fans… and Fireball Run’s Race to Recover America’s Missing Children is such a noble cause, Starr Hill wanted to do anything we could to help.”  -Ken Starr, Starr Hill Vineyard & Winery


“The Fireball Run competitors will be rallying through Pennsylvania this September and are looking forward to a chance to thank Ken in person. While the production won’t have the opportunity to take in one of the beautiful and informative wine tours as I did, anyone visiting Pennsylvania should definitely stop by Starr Hill Vineyard & Winery.”  -JJ Sanchez, Fireball Run Executive Producer
