Peter Michael Winery

Peter Michael Winery is a prestigious and highly acclaimed winery located in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. Established in 1982 by Sir Peter Michael, a successful entrepreneur and wine enthusiast, the winery has garnered international recognition for its exceptional Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

Sir Peter Michael's vision was to create wines that rivaled the finest wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux. To achieve this, he meticulously selected vineyard sites in Knights Valley and the Sonoma Coast, renowned for their cool climate and diverse soils, ideal for producing wines of elegance and complexity.

The winery's vineyards are planted in carefully chosen locations, taking advantage of unique terroirs that showcase the distinct characteristics of each grape variety. From the rocky slopes of the Ma Belle-Fille Vineyard for Chardonnay, to the cool, maritime influence of the Le Caprice Vineyard for Pinot Noir, and the volcanic soils of the Les Pavots Vineyard for Cabernet Sauvignon, each vineyard imparts its own individuality to the wines.

Peter Michael Winery is known for its meticulous vineyard management practices, including organic and sustainable farming methods, and hand-harvesting to ensure the highest quality fruit. The winery's winemaking team, led by winemaker Nicolas Morlet, embraces a combination of traditional and innovative techniques to create wines that express the unique characteristics of the vineyards.

The Chardonnays of Peter Michael Winery are revered for their richness, complexity, and balance. They undergo barrel fermentation and aging in French oak, resulting in wines with opulent fruit, vibrant acidity, and subtle oak influences. The Pinot Noirs exhibit finesse, precision, and the distinctive character of each vineyard site, showcasing vibrant red fruit flavors, silky tannins, and a sense of place. The Cabernet Sauvignons are powerful yet refined, displaying layers of dark fruit, structure, and impeccable aging potential.

Peter Michael Winery has consistently received critical acclaim for its wines, with numerous accolades and high ratings from wine critics. The winery's commitment to quality and its pursuit of excellence have firmly established it as one of the leading producers of Burgundian-style and Bordeaux-style wines in California.

With its picturesque vineyards, meticulous craftsmanship, and dedication to showcasing the unique terroirs of Sonoma County, Peter Michael Winery continues to create wines that capture the essence of their origin and captivate wine enthusiasts worldwide.
