Switchback Ridge produces handcrafted estate grown wines sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga. Situated off of the Silverado Trail at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon, the property encompasses nearly 100 acres, 21 acres of which are currently under vine. Varieties grown include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, including a historic old vine block that was planted in the 1950s. The property has been in the Peterson family for over 100 years, which is extremely rare in the Napa Valley! Kelly Peterson, who represents the family’s fourth generation, founded Switchback Ridge in 1999 as a way to continue her family’s legacy that began with her great grandparents back in 1914. Bob Foley is the winemaking talent behind the Switchback Ridge wines. Bob has been making highly acclaimed wines in the Napa Valley for over 40 years. He has been crafting the Switchback Ridge wines since the first vintage, providing a level of hands on expertise and consistency that is beautifully expressed in every bottle.
Once a year the rarest new Napa Valley wines become available under one roof at Premiere Napa Valley. Wineries throughout the Napa Valley are given one task to participate: create a one-of-a-kind wine for this event to be purchased by one lucky bidder. This event is only open to select members of the wine trade and the successful bidder is the sole owner of this unique wine.
