Its history, vision and wines all reflect the love that Clos Pegase Founders Jan and Mitsuko Shrem shared for this iconic winery. Their passion led to a landmark for extraordinary art, architecture, and of course, wine. It all began in 1983 when the couple ended a long search for the perfect vineyard property and bought 50 acres near Calistoga in northern Napa Valley. Jan had studied winemaking in Bordeaux, and he and Mitsuko were entranced with Greek mythology. The name Clos Pegase salutes the ancient Greeks, and their winged horse Pegasus (on the winery label) proclaims their dedication to only estate wines (clos means enclosed place).
