Description 

The architectural centerpiece of the Peju Province winery, the 50 foot Norman style tower was designed by renowned Southern California architect Calvin Straub in 1981, two years before owner Tony Peju acquired the property. It took another 25 years to realize that vision.

Upon entering through the hand-crafted wooden doors of the copper roofed, stone-faced tasting room tower visitors are greeted by a soaring ceiling and a mezzanine. The large, open room houses the tasting room and an art gallery lit by a massive, 1906 antique stained glass window.
