Peju Province is a family owned and operated winery established in 1982 by Anthony and Herta Peju. They are joined by their daughters Lisa and Ariana as part of the daily operations team. The HB Vineyard (30 acres) is located in Rutherford at the winery site and produces the organically farmed Reserve wines, only red varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The Persephone Ranch (350 acres - 135 planted to vineyards) in Pope Valley features sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Peju's goal is to produce high end approachable wines - which undoubtedly takes a combination of winemaking skills and blending, but above all - capturing the essence of the grapes from the terroir in which they are grown.

The rustic wood beams and bars in the main tasting area, and extraordinary Brazilian quartzite floors in the tasting room addition, surround guests with a stunning and architecturally-unique setting while enjoying Peju's award-winning wines. Peju offers a wine experience unlike any other as guests sample four current wines, many that are exclusive to the tasting room, in a presentation-style setting. Groups are escorted to one of our unique tasting bars where a Peju tasting room ambassador shares the story of each wine, Peju’s history and winemaking style.
