The Sunshine Vineyards are adjacent to the one-acre block which has produced the Hartwell/Grace Cabernet Sauvignon. The 10-acre Sunshine Vineyard is planted on a rocky, steep and terraced hillside terrain in the famous microclimate of the Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley. The wine from this vineyard is estate bottled and aged 22 months in French medium toasted oak barrels. No blending is done, it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Construction is underway on the new Hartwell Sunshine winery overlooking the historic Silverado Trail. The winery and caves are scheduled to be completed in time for the 1997 harvest. The Sunshine wines will be produced at the new winery by winemaker, Celia Masyczek.

Bob Hartwell will be continuing the production of his wines from the Grace clone - all the fruit from the Grace clone will continue to be crushed and produced at Grace Family Vineyard by winemaker, Heidi Barrett. James Laube rates Hartwell Vineyards Cabernet (92) and acknowledges that these wines are difficult to find...
