At Sunset Hills Vineyard, we are committed to sustaining the beautiful environment that serves as our vineyard’s backdrop by utilizing innovative, green technology wherever possible. Bluebird houses, monarch gardens, and our solar powered facility are just a few of our sustainable practices.

Sunday, April 22nd
12 – 5 PM

Celebrate Earth Day with:

Delicious food from Artemi’s Kitchen! They’ll be selling food at the vineyard from 12 pm to 5 pm. Come hungry and enjoy specially prepared dishes from Artemi’s Kitchen – which all go great with Sunset Hills wine.

Great music by Chris Bone – he always puts on an entertaining show!

Tesla Model S Display – During the event, Tesla will have a Model S on display. Tesla product experts will be on hand to answers questions and show you how electric vehicles can fit seamlessly into your lifestyle.

The Sunset Hills Vineyard solar panel system produces 80,000 Kilowatt hours of clean power per year, which reduces CO2 emissions at an equivalence of planting 240,000 trees annually! Our newest addition, the electric car chargers, are ready to go for when your car needs an energy boost. Charge your car directly from the power generated by the sun.

Solar Foundation – The Solar Foundation will be at Sunset Hills Vineyard during the event to share information about their Solar Saves Lives initiative. This initiative coordinates the delivery and installation of solar equipment to areas in need, such as Puerto Rico after the 2017 Hurricanes. A portion of sales of our Sunset White during April 1st - 22nd will be donated to The Solar Foundation.

Barrel Auction – There will be a silent auction of a wine barrel painted by Sunset Hills’ own Diane Canney to support Solar Saves Lives. Stop by the vineyard to see Diane in the process of painting on April 7th from 12pm – 3pm. The barrel will be on display and the silent auction will open on April 14th. Stop by the vineyard to place a bid and help support Solar Saves Lives and you could be the owner of your very own Sunset Hills wine barrel!

Bud Break Tours – April is Virginia Vineyard Month and also the month that a lot of vines begin to bud! Mike Canney, Owner of Sunset Hills Vineyard, will be conducting impromptu vineyard tours, discussing bud break in the vineyard.
