About PEJU Winery
In September, 2007, Peju earned Organic Certification for its Rutherford Estate Vineyard from the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Peju has been moving towards organic farming practices in all three of its Napa Valley vineyards which include the H.B. Vineyard in Rutherford, the Persephone Vineyard in Pope Valley and the Wappo Vineyard in Dutch Henry Canyon. Currently, the Persephone and Wappo Vineyards practice sustainable farming, with organic certification goals set within the next three years pending regulatory approval.
The Rutherford Vineyard’s organic certification is instrumental in Peju’s commitment to increase its environmental initiatives moving into the future to help protect the land in the Napa Valley and beyond. The organic farming practices avoid the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and plant growth regulators while relying on crop rotation, compost and ecological-based cultivation to maintain soil productivity. In return, Peju is helping to sustain and enhance the health of ecosystems in the land and the surrounding areas.
