Midnight Cellars

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
In 1994 a dream began at a large winery in Napa Valley when members of the Hartenberger family were on a wine tasting vacation. The Midnight Cellars have now celebrated the 10th anniversary of its founding in 1995. This vineyard is situated on the west side of the Paso Robles appellation in a topographical region called the Templeton Gap known for cooler daytime temperatures resulting from marine influences.
The Midnight Vineyard is 25.5 acres in size and is planted to Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Although a complicated subject, several viticulturalists will agree that smaller yields produce superior wine grapes. The vineyard is producing three tons per acre of very intense fruit which has so far resulted in some remarkable Midnight Estate wines.
The winery offers award winning wines that include Cabernet Sauvignon Nebula, 2004 Pinot Noir Aquarius, Gemini Reserve Red, Zinfandel Estate, Merlot Estate, Full Moon Red Wine, Syrah Nocturne, Mare Nectaris and many more. Also they are a small producer of award-winning premium Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Red Bordeaux Blends and Paso Roblan Rhone and Italian Blends as well as Chardonnay.

The goal of Midnight Vineyard’s winemaking program is to create wines of uncompromising quality with optimum flavor and aromatic components that reflect the unique characteristics of the vineyards from which they come.
