Porter Creek Vineyards

Steve Pedersen

Steve Pedersen comes to us from San Francisco where he parlayed a $5 an hour under the table stock boy job at the Castro Village Wine Company into eventually being the wine buyer at Campton Place Hotel in the late 80’s. In the 90’s he worked for California Wine Marketing, representing their storied book of family owned, smaller wineries such as Matanzas Creek, Arrowood and Iron Horse Vineyards. When he finally realized he couldn’t live in their guest houses forever, he moved to the Russian River…finally settling into a lovely cabin near the Monte Rio bridge. Now retired, he leaves the house only to walk his gorgeous dog Sheila, and to drive Westside Road to his favorite winery and tasting room, Porter Creek Vineyards.
