Peju Province Winery, www.peju.comlocated on Highway 29 in Rutherford, where Peju is known for it’s beautiful gardens and art gallery, the tasting room is open daily, no appointment necessary.    

The love of farming and a passion for wine brought Anthony Peju to the Napa Valley. A series of ideas – starting in his birthplace on the Caspian Sea, then France, England and eventually, Los Angeles – created their Napa Valley winery.

Tony Peju was studying film at LACC and UCLA when he met Herta Behensky (HB), his future wife. HB encouraged him to start the winery, and together with her help, a Mustang as a down payment, landscape companies, florist stores, buying and selling properties, looking all over Southern California for an appropriate 500 acre farm site – Napa Valley seemed to be the right place.

In 1982, they purchased 30 acres of land with the magic ingredient – location. Neighboring vineyards at Rutherford included Robert Mondavi, Inglenook and Beaulieu. Situated between Highway 29 and the Napa River, the acreage included a 1900-era house and rambling vineyards, some 60 or more years old, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and French Colombard.

Looking to the future, Tony and Herta have introduced their two daughters, Lisa and Ariana, to the workings of the wine business. Both of the young women are immersing themselves in all aspects of Peju Province Winery.

Their current wines consist of;  2009 Carnival White:  2008 Sauvignon Blanc;  2008 Chardonnay (sold out);  2008 Peju Pink (sold out);  2008 Rose (sold out);  NV Provence Red & White Blend;  2006 Cabernet Sauvignon;  2006 Fifty/Firty:  2006 Zinfandel:  2006 Cabernet Franc:  2005 Cabernet Sauvignon H.B. Vineyard;  2006 Merlot;  2006 Estate Syrah;  2006 Estate Delicias Port;   2006 Reserve Cabernet Franc;  2006 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. 

We had the Sauvignon Blanc which was good, the Merlot was spicy, the Zin was zesty, and the Syrah was dark black and very good.  The grounds are beautiful with flower gardens and fountains, the second floor has a art gallery and the tasting room store has many wine related items to purchase.
