The Peju Wine Club
At the point when Tony Peju bought the 30-section of land “Stephanie Vineyard” in 1983, it had been delivering wine grapes since the mid-1900s and a portion of the vines any longer. Initially planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Colombard, the organic product was sold to various wineries by the vineyard’s previous proprietors.
Peju kept on offering grapes at first and kept on enhancing the vineyard through more prominent consideration regarding overhang administration, trellising and water system. He likewise changed the name to the “H.B. Vineyard”, the initials of his better half.
In a perfect world arranged between Highway 29 and the west bank of the Napa River, the vineyard is a piece of the Rutherford Appellation, a six square mile area popular even by Napa Valley norms. Adjacent is the notable vineyards of Inglenook, Robert Mondavi, Beaulieu, and Caymus.
Rutherford is at the valley’s broadest point thus has longer sun introduction and along these lines a higher brilliant incentive than different parts of Napa Valley. UC Davis sorts the region as Region II. Notwithstanding the warm developing temperatures, the vines are cooled at night by the northern compasses of San Francisco (San Pablo) Bay. A run of the mill summer day sees evening temperatures drop by 40-50 degrees. Cool night temperatures enable the organic product to age gradually, developing tannins and adjusting acids in the long-developing season. Rain in Rutherford comes for the most part in the winter months, 26-36 inches yearly, filling the aquifers and repositories which are fundamental in the valley’s flooded vineyards.
It is an ideal terroir for wine grapes. Be that as it may, even in such a grape heaven there can be issues. Like the greater part of the old plantings in Napa Valley, Peju’s vines were initially planted on rootstock not impervious to the staggering phylloxera mite. Furthermore, the old vines were arriving at the finish of their beneficial years and the squares of Colombard were not the perfect varietal for Rutherford. In 1990 the choice was made to replant.

Thinking about the air, and the land she experienced childhood with, is her need. To date, 720 boards have been introduced more than 10,000 square feet of the winery’s rooftop. They will create control all through the winery. A sum of 36% percent of the yearly vitality utilized will be sun oriented created. Amid the 30-year lifetime of the framework, ozone-depleting substances and air contaminations will be extraordinarily diminished with this socially capable and ecologically solid advance into what’s to come.

How does sun based power function?
Sun oriented power frameworks transform daylight into power. At the point when the sun sparkles, you can produce more power than you devour (your meter will truly turn in reverse). Around evening time you’ll draw on service organization control, basically utilizing the electrical matrix as a mammoth stockpiling battery.
To what extent will a sunlight based power module keep on delivering power?
Sun based power modules are for the most part ensured to deliver power for something like 25 – 30 years at their appraised power. For correlation, a portion of the first sun oriented electric cells created by Bell Labs (in 1954) are as yet working and delivering power

The present H.B. Vineyard is a remarkable case of Napa Valley viticulture. Vines are prepared on vertical shoot position trellises and painstakingly manicured of overabundance parallel sticks and clears out. Water system starts in pre-summer, decreasing at veraison (turning of shading) so the plant centers vitality around aging, not development. To escalate flavors, unnecessary grape bunches are “dropped” enabling those staying to get full advantage of the vine’s photosynthesis. Gather can occur in a few goes as teams select bunches at ideal readiness.
“Whatever we would like to accomplish in the jug starts in the vineyard,” says Tony Peju. “We are lucky to have discovered this vineyard and its optimal conditions for our hold wines.”
