Peter Franus

Small winery of great winemaker which is still under radar and we are glad for that. Peter started with wine in 1979 when he produced Zinfandel and Chenin Blanc for another winery, but he stayed loyal to this grape varietals till these days. He worked in AVA Mount Veeder in Napa, he felt in love with this location so he continues to work there today and buying grapes from his friends. The best shot is definitelly Brandlin vineyard which is located on the top of Mount Veedr and delivers amazing view on all Napa Valley. Vineyard is mostly sand-stone profile so its great base for beautiful and structured Zinfandel. You can´t find Peters winery somewhere at the road, its because he is really butique type of winery and he keeps his barrels in Laird company down in Napa AVA. Focus is mostly on Zinfandel, but Peter i salso great with Cabernet Franc and really rare Chenin Blanc and Mourvedre. All the wines from Peter are simply rare, because production is around 55.000 bottles per vintage. There i also young experiment in Lake County which is already succesfull. Its about two wines from this apelation which is located north from Napa Valley by Clear Lake and from local grapes Peter produces great cuvée Red Hills Red Blend and Zinfandel, both you can find in our portfolio.
