Midnight Cellars Winery was founded by the Hartenberger family in May 1995. It was a vacation the family shared in Northern California wine country that inspired the Hartenberger’s to venture into the wine business. The family members all sold their Chicago homes and journeyed to Paso Robles where they started their Midnight Cellars Vineyards vision. Midnight Cellars is home to 28 planted acres in Paso growing quality, low-yield, sustainably farmed Bordeaux grapes as well as Zinfandel and Chardonnay according to our Midnight Cellars wine reviews. However of all the Midnight Cellars wines produced the most heralded by consumers and critics alike are their big Merlots and their “Paso Roblan” blends. With a production of approximately 7,000 cases annually, the 160 acre Midnight Cellars ranch in the western hills of Paso is home to three generations of Hartenbergers.
