“Best in Naoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

After visiting several wineries in Napa, our favorite is Peju. The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous gardens, sculptures and fountains. The building itself is beautiful and full of character. This place has pizazz! The wines are excellent and our Peju wine pourer, Bailey, was very knowledgable and made our experience there very pleasant. Don't miss this winery on your next trip to Napa!

“Great Wine Tasting Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is the 3rd visit we have made to Peju and we regularly enjoy their wine at home. This visit was like going back to see an old friend. The wine has held its quality and the Peju winery is a beautiful location. We love the grounds and the flowers are always spectacular. But we came for the wine and were not disappointed. Scott led us through a thorough flight of their wines and they are still producing winners. I am always surprised that I like the Peju Provence, their red and white blend because I am a confirmed red wine lover. But it's a great porch wine for these hot summer months. Of course, at $22 per bottle, you had better have a nice porch!

My favorite is still Peju's Cabernet Sauvignon and it was the high point of the tasting. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon estate bottled Rutherford Reserve Napa Valley is nothing short of exquisite and could still benefit from more aging. The 2010 is a great vintage and is also going to get better with time. I highly recommend this vineyard for a great tasting and educational experience.

“Beautiful but no Poetry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

For a couple of years I've been reading about the poetry and songs from the hosts at Peju. Sadly, that aspect of the visit is evidently over. But the property is beautiful, the wine is both interesting and good (they have a white and red blend, for example). The gift shop is great and the grounds are beautiful. So, go but don't expect singing or poetry from the servers.

Hello Jim,
Thank you for stopping in and tasting at Peju on your recent visit to the Napa Valley. We do still entertain with poetry, song and some days even wine raps. You just visited us on a day when our Vintertainer, Alan Arnopole was on vacation. Please visit us again and ask for Alan next time.
Kind Regards,
Dan Gaffey

“Beautiful property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

This was my second favorite winery. (Frog's Leap was my first!) Peju has a beautiful property. We loved all the flowers and statues around the property. There's also a Koi pond, although it seems way too small for such large fish! :-(

The gift shop was nice. They had a lot of pottery and pretty wine-related gifts.

The wine tasting was very nice. The woman gave us some history about the winery and the owners of the winery, which really added to the experience. The tastings were generous and we were able to get into the tasting for free, because an app (I don't recall what the name of the app is. Just look up wine tastings in the Apple store.)

Overall, this was one of our favorite wineries.

“Phenomenal Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Set in beautiful backdrops of mountains and vistas, this winery is perhaps our favorite in the area. They have such a Nepalese influence, and there is also appealing art displayed in the winery. Wonderful wines, waitstaff and setting!
