The Peju family started their winery over 30 years ago and the second generation, daughters Lisa and Ariana, are taking over the mantle. Food and wine pairing adventures as integral to their philosophy.
The Pestoni Family Estate Winery upholds the high standards and practices of their great-great-grandfather’s winemaking tradition without compromise. From growing to harvest, fermentation to bottling, every step in our process is accomplished by hand to achieve the purest expression of place.
For them, winemaking is not a business, it is heritage. They are honored to produce premium wines that not only express the distinct personalities of each of the estate vineyards, but also preserve something of their family history.
In 1995, Gavin Newsom and Gordon Getty stumbled upon a magical piece of land in the heart of Oakville, Napa Valley. Inspired by one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters, Sir John “PlumpJack” Falstaff, who’s fun-loving, down-to-earth disposition is only rivaled by his fierce loyalty to Prince Henry V, with whom he shares more than a few goblets of sack (wine) at the local tavern. They pay allegiance to our world-class vineyard by crafting high-quality wines that honor the land, and they celebrate the convivial spirit of the namesake with their inviting, approachable style.
