This prestigious business attracted the who's who from California, the Northwest, and many foreign countries. While facilitating sales, Demonstrating knowledge of over 60 Library wines and 30 daily drinkers, customer experiences, and winery/vineyard tours Peter furthered his thirst for industry knowledge.
In 2016 Peter Sailed around the world visiting 24 Countries along the way. His voyage included stops at Wineries and Vineyards on 4 Continents. From Myanmar to South Africa, and Italy to British Columbia Peter has had an amazing exposure to the wine business and how it is managed.
After working at a large scale operation in Oregon producing as much as 300,000 cases a year Peter decided he needed a more intimate experience to really understand the roots and mindsets of small scale family owned operations. Peter found a volunteer position at a refurbished Castle sitting on 10 hectares of vineyards and Olive trees nestled in the Tuscan Countryside. While living in the castle Peter managed a crew of volunteer workers hailing from all over the world. He worked the vines by hand learning the delicate nature of the product. The small scale operation had a single bottle corker and hand labeler. Peter and his team spent hours upon hours in the 1000 year old barrel room dusting off bottles made with real passion and working these primitive machines to prepare for distribution across Europe.
This passion for Wine Business paired with Peter’s passion for Real Estate and entrepreneurship have brought California Vineyard Property to life. This venture will focus on the purchase and sales of vineyards from Temecula to Paso Robles to Napa and Beyond.
