About

History

Petersen Vineyards was established in 2012, and with the desire to learn the trade from A-Z, we started with learning how to grow and manage our own grape vines. With the first harvest in 2013 we made our first wine, and by the following year in 2014 we crafted our now famous Diablo Sunset.

Committed to our project we were bonded as a winery in 2015 and we engineered our Zero MOG production process. With wine aging, in 2016 it was time to create our marketing strategy, design labels, launch websites, all while building a welcoming facility. A 100% Estate Winery! Sales started in 2017 and the rest is history...

Our Grapes

We grow our own grapes, and we pride ourselves with the quality we achieve through hard work and skill. Make no mistake! The quality of wine starts with the quality of the grapes.

The grapes we grow are carefully selected to fit with our climate and soil. Aromas, boldness and mouth feel, spices and tannins are all attributes we sort to control through careful grape management and selection.

Customer testimony:

Hello Peter, Good to chat the other day. Everything you produced last year was excellent, so I will work around your demand & supply schedule without requesting specific grapes. I will say last years Tinta Cao was particularly impressive.

Congratulations on building a top quality facility. I have grapes from many suppliers last year, and hands down yours have the most fruit, body and mouth feel. Yours are simply a cut above.

Have a great day !
