Peter Harter, Volunteer Head of Marketing & Research

He is as adept at stacking cases of wine while devising political strategies on conference calls as he is at pulling shots at the espresso machine - there is no Perkins Harter without Peter.


Randy Pijoan, Label Artist

Randy has produced an edition of prints of the Perkins Harter label etching for purchase.  Email us for details.

All sales will benefit the Ventero Open Press, a 501 (c)(3) organization Randy established to support a new generation of emerging artists.

Amazing artist, huge heart.

Perkins Harter began as a four-vintage project in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, just outside of Healdsburg.  This series of wines highlights the legacy of the historic R. Teldeschi Zinfandel vines, planted in 1889 - with which I had the privilege to work.  These very small production wines are handmade impressions of a place we call 'home'.

 “The Weight” is a homage to the old scale that first cataloged our first 80-15-5 blend.  We fell in love with it.  Some of us even napped by it.
