United States California United States Peltier Station Viognier 2007

Member Review by Philip James:

Fantastic nose of honeysuckle. Soft and rounded with a sweet floral finish. Nice and fruity, but lower acids mean the wine is rounder than I'd prefer.

  The Schatz family has been growing grapes in the Lodi Appellation since the 1950's.  They purchased a special vineyard where the winery is now located which is lined by a historic railroad spur where three packing shed were once located.  In the early 1900’s these packing sheds were common stops for locomotives to load the famous Lodi grapes and ship them to wineries and home winemakers throughout the nation.  Thus, the label Peltier Station emerged in honor of the local history and abounding railroads that helped build California. Passion for growing grapes evolved into passion for creating great wines and many were crafted from the twelve varietals that are grown in their vineyards. The family’s Italian heritage also brought two unique wines that we share, Teroldego and Vermentino.     Farming “green” has always been a part of the Schatz mission and all of their vineyards are a part of the “Lodi Rules for Sustainable Wine Growing Program.”  This is a third party certification program that was created by scientists, academics and vintners and known to be the most recognized in the industry covering all facets of land stewardship.  Our mission is to produce outstanding wines by nurturing our vineyards in bringing forth the unique essence and full expression of the vines thus creating wines to enjoy from our place to yours.  Read less
