Peju Province Winery

Napa Valley

Our Story

Named "BEST WINERY IN NORTH AMERICA" by the Discoverer Blog, PEJU Winery began with Tony Peju daring to sell wines in an informal facility: the garage at their vineyard estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley. A lengthy legal battle ensued and Peju persisted: this became the catalyst for Napa County to create the legal definition of what a winery is which was adopted in 1991. It is no wonder that Tony is called "The Father of Custom Crush ".

Next? Reinventing how wine is marketed. In 1985, Tony Peju embraced the concept of Direct-To-Consumer Wine Marketing. In 2003, daughter Lisa became the young ambassador of Peju Winery featured in weekly ads on page 3 of the San Francisco Chronicle. These first of the kind wine "edutainment" ads energized a new market. PEJU's guests grew to include young and old, amateurs and aficionados alike.

Meet the Winemaker

Sara Fowler has been named Best Local Winemaker by Napa Valley Life Magazine in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Sara began working harvests and summers at Kendall-Jackson, and then pivoted to studying enology at Fresno State and becoming a winemaker. When she arrived at Peju in 2006 her first mission was to transition the estate vineyard into being organically farmed, which was accomplished in September 2007. Today she supervises the farming of the winery’s six estate vineyards in four different sub-AVAs of the Napa Valley. Sara is also the Vice President of Winemaking and Operations for Peju’s sister winery, Calmére Estate, in Carneros.
