We are a small estate winery nestled in the east foothills of San Martin, California. With a passion for quality, our wines are meticulously handcrafted in small lots to preserve the utmost excellence in both character and style. Production is also limited, allowing us to bring out the full potential in every bottle of wine. Surrounded by the Santa Clara Valley, we are producing classic varietals such as Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay along with our premium, estate-grown and bottled Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. Our award-winning vintages paired with our passion for quality illustrates our unsurpassed commitment to excellence. Winemakers Gregory and Teri Peterson have been passionate about wine for over 25 years. Establishing a love for winemaking back in their late teens, the two continued to make wines for friends and family over the years. Beginning with 10 vines in the small backyard of their San Jose home, the two hoped they could eventually plant a larger vineyard. It was in 2000 when the two moved with their daughters, Sarah and Crystal to a beautiful ranchette in San Martin. From here the two attended vineyard management classes at UC Davis and started planting small blocks of vines on the property. The Peterson’s then started entering their wines into competitions and consistently received awards including, double gold, gold, silver and bronze. The overwhelming feedback they received influenced them to bond their winery in 2005. As a family owned and operated winery, the Peterson family manages all aspects of Creekview Vineyards - from the vine management, to the winemaking process and all the way down to bottling and labeling. Every bottle of Creekview Vineyards wine is meticulously handcrafted to perfection and finesse. The 1.5 acre estate vineyard is on the same property as their winery and is planted with Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and some Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec for blending. The Peterson’s also purchase grapes from other local premium growers in the area. Read less
