We believe knowledge is key when it comes to cultivating truly superior grapes. Daily field analysis and collaboration with the UC and California State University systems result in a clear understanding of our soils, groundwater, and vineyard microclimates. Couple that with our commitment to innovation and sustainability and you get a unique process that allows each of our delicious grape varieties to reach their full potential.
Aside from harvesting for our own production, Sunview also sells rootstock of popular varieties. Rootstocks can be used to improve plant health, increase production and help sustain the health or survival of a vineyard.
At Sunview we believe that high quality safe produce should not come at an environmental cost. As the third generation to farm this land, we are dedicated to do everything we can to sustain and protect the soil, water, air and wildlife here in the San Joaquin Valley. Our sustainability initiatives include:
All of our grapes are grown, processed and packed by Sunview Vineyards of California/Sunview Marketing International, are products of natural origin and are not derived from genetically modified organisms (GMO). Any ingredients used in the processing of our products have been manufactured in such a manner that genetically modified organisms are not incorporated in their production.
All of our products are processed in the State of California, United States of America.
Sunview has a solid history in export markets around the world. Our first exports to the Far East began over forty years ago with shipments to Hong Kong and Japan. Today, you can find fresh Sunview grapes in over fifty countries throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East during the California shipping season. Along the way, we have devoted ourselves to increasing awareness and appreciation for great-tasting California grapes in many new markets, including the first direct shipments to markets like China, India and Vietnam.
Sunview’s export customers have played a vital role in the success of our export program over time. In fact, we endeavor to develop long-term relationships with companies in export markets that share our philosophy of doing everything possible to ensure that Sunview grapes reach consumers in “just picked” condition. We have relationships and partnerships in many markets that now span almost three decades.
Our challenge is to constantly select the best varieties to grow and the most effective systems for producing them in order to better serve consumers in overseas markets with increasing expectations for freshness and quality. With this in mind, we have invested continually in improvements in post-harvest handling, modernization of our cold storage facilities and shipping operations, and training of our dedicated and professional staff.
