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 by happenstance...and developed into a small production Zinfandel project in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County.  We have focused our attention on only one wine each vintage with the intention to express this one place - an impression of the place we have called home.  These micro-production wines are a handmade contribution to the legacy of the historic R. Teldeschi vineyard - a heritage vineyard planted in 1889 with which it has been a privilege to work and express though our wine.

Pork Chop, Assistant Winemaker & Grape Herder

 “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.
