When Tony and Herta “H.B.” Peju relocated to Rutherford from Los Angeles 32 years ago, they brought with them a vision of building a winery, an unwavering work ethic, and two young daughters who soaked in the couple’s entrepreneurial spirit and love for Napa’s beautiful farmland.
They established Peju Winery and dedicated themselves to welcoming guests and to crafting exceptional wines from their organically farmed estate vineyard.
Still family owned and operated today, Peju Winery has transformed over the past 32 years from a simple grape growing venture into a landmark winery celebrated for elegant, complex, and balanced wines in the classic Bordeaux varieties.
The winery’s tasting room resides in a 50-foot tower, completed in 2003, that was envisioned by Tony Peju even before he purchased the estate property. Originally designed by architect Calvin Straub in 1981, the pen and ink rendering has graced the label of every bottle of Peju wine.
With over 30 years of accomplishments, Tony, Herta, Lisa and Ariana Peju are still focused on the same things imagined all those years ago: family, estate grown fruit, award winning wines, and an inviting environment. We invite you to visit us for a tasting or book a private winery experience and discover a garden oasis in the heart of the Napa Valley.
