“Owner Fred Peterson, and now son Jamie, have been making soulful wines in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County for 30 years, using their low-tech yet high-touch approach they call "Zero Manipulation." .
At Peterson Winery we practice the philosophy of Zero Manipulation.
Our definition of Zero Manipulation is using the gentlest winemaking techniques possible to maximize flavors, aromatics and the original essence of the wine. The less you do in the course of a wine’s tenure in the cellar, the more of the grape’s and vineyard’s essence you’ll have to bottle. Every time you do something to a wine, you take out a little of what you started with.”
