Joe and Nancy Hart of Hart Winery are an inspiration to those who have ever dreamed of owning and operating a winery. In 1970, they discover the Temecula Valley and after much research deemed Temecula Wine Country to be ideal. In 1974 the Hart family planted its first grapevines in the beautiful Temecula Valley. On weekends, Nancy, Joe and their three sons planted the vineyard, which is comprised of Syrah, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. In 1980 they built the winery on a corner of their 10-acre vineyard property. Later that same year, the first wines bearing the Hart label were produced, bottled and sold. Today, in keeping with the philosophy that small-scale winemaking is an art form engaged in by a winemaker with a passion for wine, Joe Hart, along with his son, Jim, produce about 5000 cases of premium wine annually. The Hart family places an emphasis on matching grape varieties with terroir. Numerous Gold Medals and Best of Class Awards throughout the years Read more »

Hart Winery on Snooth

  • I like Hart.  It's the very first winery you see hit as you are traveling on Rancho California Rd. from I-15--it's on the left.  It is one of the older wineries in the area.  I've had good Barbera, Syrah, Sangiovese and Sauvignon Blanc from Hart.  Usually, the Joe Hart is working in the tasting room.  Joe just a terrific guy.  He is the founder ...

  • Talbott Kali-Hart Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Kali Hart Chard has a rare blend of lively citrus, minerality, and tropical fruit with enough touch of oak to give it warmth. Love it! Best chardonnay yet. Read More

  • Hart Sangiovese Huis Vineyard 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Kind of a murky red color in the glass. Some berry amd minty notes on the nose. On the palate it starts with lots of blackberry flavors. It is medium bodied and has nice acidity--pretty much what I would expect for a Sangiovese. US$28.00 at the winery in Temecula. Read More

  • Hart Winery Syrah Temecula Valley Volcanic Ridge Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, dark purple color. Earthy, mushroomy nose. Earthiness continues on the palate, followed by cherry fruit, then acid tartness. Some tannin, but nothing to write home about. Considering the acid blast that hits early on, the finish is quite smooth. US$36.00 at the winery in Temecula last spring. Read More
