Peter Michael Winery
In 1982 Sir Peter and Lady Margaret Michael founded the Peter Michael Winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. The estate vineyards rest on steep hillsides ranging in elevation from 1000 to nearly 2000 feet. With 120 acres under vines, the winery is known for single-vineyard and estate grown Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, a Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee, and Pinot Noir. From the beginning the Michael Family has dedicated the estate to the credo: "mountain vineyards, classical winemaking, limited production." Given this covenant, only a limited quantity will ever be available.
