Story

Check out their Preferred Member Offer

PEJU’S RUTHERFORD VINEYARD has been home to Ariana and Lisa Peju since they were children. The estate winery was founded in 1983 by their parents, Tony and Herta (H.B.), who have slowly turned over the winery’s day-to-day operations to their daughters, who are proudly leading it into the future.

The Peju family has always had a deep connection with the land and has been committed to sustainable farming practices at all of its vineyard properties. In fact, Peju’s Rutherford estate is one of only 21 certified organic wineries in the Napa Valley. As a result, the portfolio features several standouts including the flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and proprietary blends such as a red and a white Cuvée Province.

Peju has been named Top Artisan Winery of the Year by Wine & Spirits and a Top California Cabernets Producer by Wine Spectator. Guests are welcome to drop in for a Classic or Reserve Tasting or to call ahead and reserve a Peju Premier Experience of their choice: Peju Small-Farm Cheese and Wine Pairing, an exploration of local cheeses paired with a selection of wines; or Peju Wine and Culinary Exploration, handcrafted seasonal bites paired with current release wines.
