Estate tasting for six at the Winemaker's home and a bottle of 2013 Cabernet Franc (Best of Class at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair)
A love of farming and a passion for wine brought Tony Peju to the Napa Valley. Born near the Caspian Sea, Tony's ideas for Peju Winery were derived from his experiences in France, England and Los Angeles. In 1983, Tony and his wife Herta purchased 30 acres of land in the Napa Valley with the magic ingredient - location.
Neighboring vineyards in Rutherford included Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyard. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and rambling vineyards, some 60 or more years old. Looking to the future, Tony and Herta continue to play a vital advisory role, but daughters Lisa and Ariana along with a strong management team are now leading the future direction of the winery.
