Peju Province Winery Description

Approaching Peju (pronounced "pay-shew") Province Winery, you will be greeted by a row of unusually pruned 40-foot sycamore trees. The road leads past the trees to the winery’s extensive gardens and numerous fountains.

The very distinct castle-like structure resembles a French provincial tower; it encloses 1,600 square feet, including a mezzanine, and is built from stucco and stone. The posts and beams are made of lumber salvaged from old Midwestern barns, and the roof is made of weathered copper. The 50-foot tower room is the site of your tasting experience and is graced with a dramatic turnoff the century 10-foot-by-20-foot stained-glass window. The tasting bar is made of Brazilian cherry, and the floor tiles were imported from Turkey. The room has a small quantity of high-quality items for sale, plus an extensive cookbook and wine-book collection.

The Peju family pairs their love of wine with their love of food by incorporating a full-size gourmet commercial kitchen on the winery property. This kitchen provides the cuisine for regular wine-and-food pairings, as well as for a four-course gourmet feast available seasonally on their terrace (call for availability). The kitchen also provides a location for cooking classes and other culinary events.

Peju wines are sold at a few premium wine shops and at the winery. The family makes an array of superior classic wines from their Rutherford and Pope Valley vineyards, and they are currently planting an additional 86 acres on their Dutch Henry Canyon property near Calistoga. They produce Chardonnay and French Colombard, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignane, Zinfandel and Zinfandel Port.

Superb and unique experience
Stamatios, Minneapolis
While the grounds and tasting room were great, and the staff wonderfully informative, friendly, and attentive, we were afforded a truly unique experience by participating in the Peju Interactive Expérience Culinaire. Chef Alex was a great instructor and helped us to create a multiple course meal with fabulous wine pairings. He was fantastic. Also, when Mrs. Peju happened to come to the winery, the staff made sure that she came over to talk to us about the winery. Our entire group very highly recommend the experience.

pvcnova, Chicago
This place is great. The building is new and beautiful. The tasting room staff was approachable, knowledgable and the furthest thing from stuffy. They let us linger in the tasting room quite a bit longer after closing time. This is a great option for people who want to have fun and not take the whole Napa experience too overly seriously.

This is a great winery to have fun at. The wine is basic compared to other Napa vineyard. If you become a member, make sure you attend a members only event. You get great food and barrel tasting.

Incredible architecture! Amazing, I felt like I was in Italy. I tasted the Cabernet Sauvignon and Peju Pink. I enjoyed the Peju Pink a little more, but both were refreshing.
