Peay Vineyards seeks to make elegant, balanced and terroir-driven Pinot noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay from their estate vineyard located in the far northwestern corner of the West Sonoma Coast. Winemaker Vanessa Wong - who worked at Château Lafite-Rothschild in Bordeaux and as winemaker at Peter Michael Winery – crafts wines with focus and intensity that capture the cool climate location and express the minerality and fruit complexity that have become the hallmark of wines from their vineyard. In addition to their own wines, Peay also sells Pinot noir to premier wineries like Williams Selyem & Failla Wineries.
Since their first release in 2002, Peay Vineyards has emerged as one of the cult-status wineries from northern California. Peay has been selected as 2009 Winery of the Year by San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Top 100 wineries in the World for 4 years in a row from Wines & Spirits Magazine, Top Pinot noir by Food & Wine Magazine and was singled out three times in the New York Times for producing “excellent wines of rare intensity and precision.”
