My great friends Martina and Ryan originally introduced me to Peju Winery in Rutherford, California several years ago, and I immediately became an instant fan of their wines and gourmet food items such as the Raspberry Cabernet Chocolate Fudge and Specialty Mustards and their beautifully landscaped grounds. I returned last Saturday with my family and friends for a Tour and a Wine & Vegetarian Tapas Tasting arranged by Katie Lewis at Peju and given by Kimberly Mansager. Kimberly warmly welcomed us and provided us a beautiful tour with information on the sustainable farming practices and solar initiatives. Peju's H.B. Vineyard in Rutherford is certified organic while the Persephone Vineyard (Pope Valley) and Wappo Vineyard are sustainably farmed with organic certification goals set within the next few years. Ariana Peju launched the "Harvesting of the Sun" project where 720 solar panels have been installed over 10,000 square feet of the winery's roof which will generate power throughout the winery.
