Peju Tower

The exterior of the Peju Province Winery is a striking element of any visit. At 50 feet in height, the Peju tower is one of both the tallest and the most unusual buildings in all of wine country. Designed by architect Calvin Straub, the tower is surrounded by fountains and a reflecting pool; not many Napa wineries feature such an interesting location for wine tastings. The roof of the Peju tower is made of weathered copper, while the building is constructed from stucco and stone. The architect used interesting, recovered materials brought from the Midwest during the tower's construction; posts and beams from old farms were used in the construction of the tower at Peju Province Winery.

Many visitors remember the hand-carved front door, which depicts a scene from Ancient Greece. Inside, 1,600 square feet comprise the home of the Peju tasting room, where guests can sit at the Brazilian cherry tasting bar for a sample. Artisan materials continue with the floor tiles from Turkey and copper stair rails. Not many Napa wineries can boast a large chandelier and antique stained glass window in their tasting room, but Peju pulls it off. The tower is depicted on every bottle of Peju wine, and this unique site is sure to be a lasting memory of your time in Napa Valley, no matter how many wineries you might visit.
