8466 St. Helena Highway
Rutherford, CA 94573
If you’re looking for an insider’s taste of winemaking, there’s no better idea for your Napa Valley Vacation than Peju Vineyards’ annual grape stomp! Help the winery kick off harvest with team competitions, a farm-to-table lunch with the winery’s own executive chef, and best of all, a chance to literally get your feet wet in the most famous of winemaking traditions. The Peju family has been shaping and refining the estate since the early 1980’s (there’s a great interactive timeline here), so you’ll definitely want to stick around once you’re there! Don’t miss the chance to check out Peju’s famous wine portfolio, with one of the winery’s many flights offered in the tasting room.
