PEJU Napa Valley experience for up to six (6) guests
Private VIP wine tasting followed by lunch, with meticulously paired Peju wines, among the vines​

Many observers consider Peju Province to be the working definition of a family winery. Tony Peju operated a successful florist and nursery business in Los Angeles when he and his wife, Herta, purchased a 30-acre property in Rutherford in 1983. Tony studied enology at U.C. Davis and was mentored by Walter Schug, at that time the winemaker for Joseph Phelps. The Peju family worked out of their garage for seven years before building and completing the winery; their daughters Lisa and Ariana, now in charge, grew up on the estate.

Weather permitting, the beautifully manicured outdoor gardens (lovingly tended and pruned by Herta Peju) will be the setting for the winning bidder’s party of six. Your visit will include a private farm to table luncheon which will be an exploration of the art of food and wine pairing, featuring a battery of recipes specially developed to showcase the best characteristics of Peju wines. You will experience the estate’s finest small-production wines, many of which are available exclusively to members of their mailing list. After sampling the very best this boutique winery has to offer, you’ll have many memories to look back upon.

INSIDER’S INFO: Accommodations, airfare and ground transportation are not included. Tasting and lunch to be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date and will expire December 1, 2022.
