Tony and Herta Peju set out nearly 30 years ago for a new home in the unfamiliar world of the Napa Valley to pursue their dream of growing and sharing a distinctive collection of fine wines. Starting with nothing more than 30 acres and their vision for a welcoming locale from which to offer their wines, the Peju's set out to grow their family, their wines and their business.
As Tony and Herta nursed the Peju Winery through its early years, they often found themselves navigating inhospitable elements of business and nature – which threatened the family's small winery before it could take hold. After pursuing a landmark decision with the county, Tony was eventually allowed to offer the family's wines from a make-shift tasting room in Rutherford, providing the humble beginnings to Peju's hospitality as an owner/producer.
After nurturing one impressive harvest after another, Tony and Herta slowly built one of the premier destinations in the Napa Valley, offering a recognized combination of superior wines with an unsurpassed welcome.
Despite almost 30 years of accomplishments, the Peju family, which now includes Lisa and Ariana Peju, is still focused on the same things imagined all those years ago: family, estate grown fruit, award winning wines and a warm, inviting environment.
We invite you to join us for a memorable experience and a collection of award winning wines offered only at the Winery.
