Rollie and Sally Heitz
started Midsummer Cellars in 2000 with the goal of making small lot
handcrafted wines of distinction that reflect the terroir of and
individuality of their vineyard sources.
Today, Midsummer Cellars
produces only vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon from three
vineyards --our own Cañon Creek Vineyard, as well as the Tomasson, and
Clark-Claudon Vineyards; all of which show their distinct characteristics in
the wines created from them.
Rollie Heitz has a lifetime of winemaking experience. He grew up in the
business at his family’s Napa Valley winery. He learned how to make fine
wines while working alongside his father, Joe Heitz, for several years
before deciding to leave the family business and establish his own
winery in 2000.
Today, Midsummer Cellars is located at the base of the foothills north
of Saint Helena, just off the Silverado Trail. The winery is small --
with beautiful vistas to the east -- and within this small space we are
able to produce true wines of distinction that we hope you will enjoy.
