Originally envisioned by Tony Peju even before he purchased the property, the 50 foot tower was designed by renowned Southern California architect Calvin Straub in 1981 and its rendering has graced the label of every estate-bottled Peju wine since.
Upon entering through the hand-crafted wooden doors of the copper roofed, stone-faced tasting room tower at Peju Province Winery, visitors are greeted by one of the most well-appointed and architecturally appealing facilities in all of Napa Valley. With a soaring ceiling and a mezzanine, the large, open room houses a thorough selection of books on food, wine and Napa Valley history; crystal decanters and wineglasses, wine openers and accessories, local olive oils, custom made mustards, and other delectables, all lit by a massive, 1906 antique stained glass window.
The Peju Tower holds the distinction of being one of the tallest and most unique buildings in the Napa Valley.
