When Tony and Herta (H.B.) Peju purchased their 30-acre Rutherford property in 1982, the vineyard and grounds were wild and overgrown. Through passion and hard work, the Peju family has transformed their Rutherford Estate into a wine, architecture, and art lover’s paradise.
Peju remains a small, family-owned winery with two generations working together. Daughters Lisa and Ariana spearhead many of Peju’s environmental initiatives, including the installation of solar panels at the winery, organic certification at Peju’s Rutherford Estate, and sustainable farming practices at the winery’s two other properties—the Persephone Vineyard in Pope Valley and the Wappo Vineyard in Calistoga. In 2009, Peju became just one of 21 Napa Valley wineries to earn certification as a Napa Green Winery and Bay Area Green Business.

Situated in the famed Rutherford appellation, which is known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, Peju produces its own stellar varieties, including a stunning Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and its proprietary wine, Provence, a blend of red and white varietals.
Wine tasting is taken to a new level at Peju, where its 50-foot French provincial tower serves as the tasting room. Visitors are treated to the music of Tasting Ambassador Alan Arnopole, whose lively tasting room performances pay homage to the wines of Peju and the Napa Valley. Visitors can also view the winery’s art exhibit, featuring artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Peju has been named Top Artisan Winery of the Year by Wine & Spirits Magazine and a producer of Top California Cabernets by Wine Spectator. After 28 years in the Napa Valley, Peju’s mission remains the same for the future: to produce high-quality wines, welcome guests with a unique and unparalleled winery experience, and provide exceptional customer care.
