Many years have passed since the days of wine tasting in the barn with Tony and HB. The winery has grown from a modest but burgeoning wine growing operation to a thriving and widely respected family business--and throughout that evolution, we have sought to make the experience of visiting the winery as delightful and memorable and complete as possible.
We have shown the work of various artists in our very own Peju Art Gallery for several years now, because we see appreciation of art and wine as being very closely linked. So as of last week, we are very pleased to begin a new partnership with another local business--Christopher Hill Gallery in St. Helena. We are so excited about this opportunity to work closely with our neighbor up the road, and of course to feature the work of some of the country's most exciting and talented artists selected by a prominent expert in his field.
This collaboration will allow us to benefit from Christopher Hill's sharp eye and unique, personal approach to curation. His nationally renowned gallery has drawn the attention of the art world since its opening in 2002 and Christopher is devoted to developing relationships with established artists as well as fostering up and coming talent. The result is a gallery that represents a cross section of 20th century movements and concepts featuring artists who are on the cutting edge in terms of conception, creativity, and technique.
We can't help but take an extra walk or 10 through the gallery every day now...it's quite impressive. So please be sure to check it out next time you are in the valley! You may wind up taking home a painting to go with your wine...
