ABOUT Peter Michael Winery WINERY:
In 1982, after a six year search, Sir Peter Michael Winery and Lady Michael purchased 630 acres of volcanic ridges on the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley. Drawing inspiration from the great wineries of Burgundy and Bordeaux, the family hired like-minded viticulturists and winemakers to help them create terroir-driven wines that would stand the test of time. Peter Michael Winery Winery produces 15 different bottlings: 3 Cabernet blends, 4 Pinot Noirs, 2 blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, and 6 Chardonnays. With the exception of our two barrel selection Chardonnays, all of these wines are vineyard specific.
Under the direction of vineyard manager Javier Aviña, the estate vineyards are farmed by hand in a low-impact, sustainable manner, relying heavily on organic techniques that include some biodynamic practices. Cover crops control erosion, feed the soil and provide a habitat for beneficial insects; eliminating the need for chemical pesticides. Tilling, spraying and mowing are accomplished with tractors. All other operations are done entirely by hand. These include: pruning, suckering, shoot positioning, hedging, crop thinning and harvest. All harvesting is done into 20-pound fruit lugs to insure that the fruit arrives at the winery in pristine condition.

Corked, Damaged or Otherwise Flawed Wines:
Because wine changes with age and responds directly to its environment and how it’s cared for, we are unable to guarantee the "drinkability" of every bottle we sell, nor can we be present to enforce such a guarantee. We can however guarantee that our wine has been cared for professionally and stored properly since our acquisition. We cannot be held accountable for “corked” wines or any other form of tainting at the time of manufacturing. These flaws and others that are rooted from the wine making process should be directed toward the wine manufacturer, not the wine retailer/broker. As drinkers of old and rare wines, there are risks associated with purchasing and drinking aged wines that we must all be willing to take. There is always the possibility that any wine may be flawed. This is true of aged wines, young wines, as well as expensive and affordable wines. If you are not comfortable taking these risks then you probably should not purchase and consume fine and rare collectible wines. We are happy to provide you with photos of your purchase in advance of the sale upon request. If you are concerned, please contact us before your purchase – we are happy to discuss the wine with you in more detail.
Refunds and Returns:All sales are final. We do not offer refunds or returns for wines that are, for example, corked, flawed, or otherwise damaged because of, for example, excessive heat or cold during shipments.
