In 2016, a long-held dream of second generation winery owners and sisters, Lisa and Ariana Peju came true. When Liana (named for Lisa and Ariana) Estates opened its doors amongst the rolling hills of the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley – with picturesque views, crisp, light wines and immersive experiences – these sisters knew they had created something different.
Lisa and Ariana Peju began their careers in wine 25 years ago as young girls when their parents, Tony and Herta (HB) Peju bought land in the Napa Valley and founded Peju Province Winery. Fueled by their parents’ entrepreneurial spirit and hard work, the sisters played a key role in making Peju the highly respected winery it is today.
Now, with their own venture, Lisa and Adriana promise to produce distinct and extraordinary wines inspired by the winery’s beautiful surroundings. Beyond the Carneros classics, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, first offerings include a food-friendly Dry Orange Muscat and Vintner’s Pink, a playfully crisp rosé. Winemaker, Sara Fowler has come on board with decades of winemaking experience and a passion for innovative blending and exploring lesser known, or as she calls them, “lost varietals” – making her the perfect fit for Liana Estates.
Besides an inventive wine list and jaw-dropping view, Liana Estates benefits from the talents of Chef Alex Espinoza. Using local ingredients from surrounding farmers as well as from his own gardens, Chef Alex creates a one-of-a-kind culinary experience in Carneros.
Liana Estates is focused on providing fun and immersive experiences for guests who want to fully appreciate the natural beauty of the Carneros region. It’s hard to miss, with great wines and stunning views stretching all the way to San Pablo Bay. Lisa and Ariana want to provide more to totally elevate the overall wine tasting experience. The newly constructed deck, allows visitors to taste outside. Sprinkled with olive trees and overlooking San Pablo Bay, the Liana Estates deck is a lovely experience.
Additionally, the local wine and culinary picnic, allows guests to choose their own spot. Guests can enjoy the deck or explore the rolling property and sit amongst the vines to enjoy the fresh, local fare. Finally, one of the more unique pairings in the valley, Liana offers a mini cupcake and wine paring. Partnering with Napa based, Kara’s cupcakes, this four wine, four mini cupcake pairing showcases the true synergy of food and wine. Perfect for all sorts of celebrations, if you have a sweet tooth, the Liana Estates cupcake pairing is a must.
Grab a glass and create your custom tasting experience. With different tasting menus based on your preference, you can enjoy a selection of wines suited to your liking. Head outside and find a spot in the sun, kick your feet up under a shady tree or cozy up to the tasting counter.
