Switchback Ridge Wines are sourced exclusively from the Peterson Family Vineyard in Calistoga. The property has been in the Peterson family since 1914 and encompasses nearly 100 acres located at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon. For over 75 years the property was primarily maintained as a farm and plum orchard, with vines intermingled amongst the trees. In 1990, the orchards were replanted to vineyard, where there are currently 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petite Sirah vines, in addition to a three-acre 50+-year-old Petite Sirah block that John Peterson helped plant as a child.

Together with her father, Kelly Peterson founded Switchback Ridge in 1999. She is responsible for all aspects of the business, including all sales, marketing, and hospitality functions.  Kelly takes great pride in what she and the three generations before her have accomplished and is thankful for the opportunity to continue a family legacy of hard-working farmers, grape growers, and now, wine producers.
