Any excuse to visit my favorite winery in Napa...especially when family is visiting from abroad. As a proud club member of Peju winery I arranged for a private lunch for a group of four. Upon arrival at Peju we were greeted with a welcome "wine" walking tour around the grounds and gardens, followed by a private tasting by a Peju wine ambassador in their beautiful tasting tower served with local artisan cheeses. If that wasn't enough we had a lunch experience where we joined the Chef in the Peju kitchen for a Chefs table luncheon. We experienced the flavors and aromas as our private Chef prepared and served our bountiful 3 course lunch paired with a selection of Peju wines. And the experience began...
