The genesis of the Pear Valley wine story is in the late 60’s when owner Tom Maas was stationed on an army base in Germany…in the midst of a vineyard. Here he learned to love both wine and the vineyard. Decades later, when the kids were grown and responsibilities waned, he was free to pursue his dream of owning and living in a vineyard. It started with 20 acres in 1999 and now Tom and Kathleen own 113 acres where they dedicate their energy and resources to providing the best environment for growing premium grapes.

The next phase of the dream began in the Spring of 2008 when they broke ground on a 14,000 winery and 5,000 square foot tasting room. Continuing the dedication to providing the best environment possible, the winery and tasting room were designed in partnership with PG&E through their “Savings By Design” program to design buildings that are energy efficient and environmentally sound. You can still find Tom and Kathleen at work enhancing the property to be more enjoyable while maintaining the focus on sustainability.

The Pear Valley philosophy is to grow the best fruit possible and then interfere as little as possible. All our vineyards are SIP certified (Sustainable in Practice). Every wine we produce is entirely Estate Grown and Bottled. Red wines are aged 2 years in oak and another year in the bottle before being released when we hope they are consumed with the same joy with which they were developed. We love to share our wines and our space and encourage you to visit and, if possible, to linger and enjoy.
