Wine is one of life’s great pleasures…
and matches best with family, friends, and food.
– Robert L. Pepi
The Creation of a Namesake
In 1980, Eponymous Wines Founder and Winemaker, Bob Pepi, and his father decided to start a winery on their Napa Valley property, giving it the name they each carried, Robert Pepi Winery. With a focus on vineyard quality and innovation, their first harvest was in 1981 and Bob has been making wine ever since. After selling the winery in 1994, Bob began working as a consultant winemaker, whose travels along the back roads of California and Argentina led to the discovery of vineyards that excited him with their potential for quality wines. These vineyards were the impetus for starting his own label, Eponymous Wines, in 2000.
