About
When Tony and Herta "H.B." Peju relocated to Rutherford from Los Angeles 40 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 40 years from a simple grape-growing venture into a landmark winery celebrated for elegant, complex, and balanced wines in the classic Bordeaux varieties.

    Worth a visit in Napa
    Always a good time at Peju. The estate is beautiful and expansive. Their staff is friendly and delightful. They have a wide variety of wines to please every palate. Although personally, I am partial to 50/50. They also have some tasty treats to accompany the wines should you choose. Definitely worth a visit.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience at PEJU! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time at our estate. Our team works hard to ensure that each guest feels welcome and comfortable. We hope to see you back soon for another visit, and thank you again for your kind words!

    Perfect tasting experience
    We had a great reserve tasting with Danny. The wines are high quality with generous pours and a knowledgeable staff. They allow you ample time to enjoy your tastings and cater to your specific taste in wine while not feeling rushed through the experience. In addition, the winery does not disappoint. The grounds are gorgeous with lots of scenic areas to relax.

    Great intro to Napa
    Had a great time at the winery. The classic seated tasting had great variations in wine. The property is stunning and there was free EV charging. Claudy was charming and gave us a great preview of each wine. A nice place to sit and relax.
    Sandie, thank you for sharing your wonderful experience at PEJU! We are delighted to hear that you had a great time during your visit and that you enjoyed our tasting. We will be sure to pass on your compliments to Claudy! Thank you once again for choosing PEJU and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back!

    Beautiful Grounds-Wonderful Tasting
    We drink the cabaret at home and were delighted to find Peju bottles a wide range of varietals that are not distributed. Kate was our sommelier and guides through a fun and educational tasting…she knows her business and made it fun. Hubby and I shared a tasting-cuts down on both the cost and the amount of wine over the afternoon of tasting. We picked up three bottles which offset the cost of the tasting. Peju has a lovely gift shop with some mustards, jellies and flavored salts as well as wine-related items. The grounds are beautifully manicured-loved the koi pond!
    Cheers, thank you for the lovely review!

    Great tasting $40
    Happened upon this place as read did walk-ins - really welcoming staff and got a counter tasting for $40. The tasting room is beautiful and our host was fantastic and enthusiastic. Ended up trying 6 wines (billed as 4) and I’ll be honest had no intention of buying and didn’t feel pressured into doing so.
    Allison, thank you for the review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the Counter Tasting. Hope to see you at the winery again soon!

    Best Cabernet Franc
    We were able to get a tasting without reservations; we thought the tasting was $40 per person but we were not given the option but instead seated in the tasting room where the tasting is $60 per person. The Cabernet Franc made it worthwhile. One tasting fee is waived with the purchase of three bottles (believe the Cabernet Franc was $80/bottle. If you want food with your tasting, they offer a small cheese plate for $30. The gift shop is stunning with an amazing stained glass window.

This place was actually one of my favorites that we went to throughout the week. I have had Peju Cabernet in the past in Las Vegas and knew I loved it so I definitely wanted to check this place out. The driveway on the way in is very unique with the trees on the side kind of curving in and over you, which I thought was really cool and different. Once you get there, the gardens are really pretty but also the inside with the stained glass windows look gorgeous! They were all super nice as we didn’t have a reservation but they got us in and got a tasting for us. Our waiter was amazing and did different ones for me versus my other two friends since they like more sweet wines and I like more dry so it was nice they varied it up. We ordered the cheese and cracker plate with it which was great! They do have this five bottle set that I really wanted and I’m still dreaming about. Maybe someday. But I will definitely go back when in Napa to this winery. I loved it!

This is one of the wineries that the three of us were really looking forward to. The property itself is gorgeous with an absolutely stunning stained glass window upon entry. The grounds are beautifully manicured.
We did a seated tasting in the tasting room which was $60 per person. We did this at the end of the day, and it seemed that our host was tired and ready to be done. He told us what we were drinking and walked away. We didn’t feel that welcome or that he was really interested in any questions that we had. We did buy a case of wine and our tastings were comped here. There is a cute little gift shop. Make sure when you visit that you take some time to look around the beautiful outdoor spaces. I likely won’t return.

A very disappointing experience. The wines were on the acidic side and so was the attitude of the gentleman pouring. Provided us no other information other than the name of the wine and walked away. It was not busy at all, so that’s no excuse. Disappointing all around.

What is not to love? The grounds are beautiful, in spite of the rain! I have been a member here for years and I am never disappointed by the wine or the experience. HARVEY, you are the best!!! So relaxed, personable, knowledgeable and fun! Thank you so much for making us feel right at home and pouring us incredible wine(s). What a treat to meet Lisa...pretty special when the owner just walks in with her dog! Truly a family vibe here. Love PEJU.
