Bob Hunter began planting the Hunter Farms vineyard in 1973 and the current 42 acre vineyard is planted to the following varieties (from most acres to fewest acres) Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. The grapes for the Robert Hunter Wines are all sourced from this ‘little piece of Sonoma County.’
