Yellow Ribbon Fund | Christmas on the Farm

In honor of Military Family Appreciation month we wanted to support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts. The Yellow Ribbon Fund began as an outreach to serve the injured returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, it has grown to provide support in a far larger capacity for recovering service men and women and their families alike. This began by providing hotel rooms, transportation, and all other necessary resources to keep family close during the recuperation phase and hospital stay of their loved ones.

A program benefitting from this organization include the Family Caregiver Program where caregivers and their families  receive support in many different ways during the difficult times of recovery. YRF actively recruits volunteers to assist the injured in rebuilding their lives once they return to their hometowns. An example of this is the Volunteer Lawyers for Veterans group that provides free legal and service and guidance to Veterans. Along with these programs, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is a place where families can live, gather together, find community, and receive support while their loved ones are in recovery.

If you plan on enjoying an alcoholic beverage at Christmas on the Farm, bar access wristbands are $5 each. 100% of wristband proceeds benefit the The Yellow Ribbon Fund.

Wristbands can be purchased in advance HERE or at the bar during the event.

Lauren Farmer | Brand Director: Lauren’s husband, Captain “Precious” Farmer served as a CH-53 pilot for 10 years in the US Marine Corps and completed 2 tours. For his final flight in the USMC, Dylan flew over Peltzer Winery as our team and his family watched from below. Capt Farmer is also the son-in-law of our General Manager Bill Owen and brother-in-law to our Project Manager Ashley Little. 

Meet our new General Manager, Bill Owen!

Peltzer Winery has a new general manager and we couldn’t be more excited.

Bill Owen began Landfill Energy Systems in 1990 and served as the Executive Vice President of Business Development for over 20 years. During which time, the business grew from a three-man operation at its inception to an industry leader employing over 1,000 Americans nationwide. Bill played an integral role in LES, from drafting the initial business plan, to serving on the Board of Directors, to negotiating its eventual merge into Aria Energy in 2014, where he continued his role as Executive Vice President.

Personally, Bill and his family have lived in the Temecula Valley for over two decades. He and his wife, Jerri, grow Cabernet Franc and Petite Syrah and have sold to some of the valley’s most established wineries including Wilson Creek Winery, Stuart Cellars, and Wiens Family Cellars.

After retiring, Bill pursued his passion as a wine enthusiast and became a pourer for his neighbors of over a decade, Carrie and Charlie Peltzer. As a trusted neighbor, friend, and employee, Bill was the natural choice and a great fit to lead our amazing team.

Charity for Charity: Fall Y’all Totes

We are excited to announce the arrival of our “Happy Fall Y’all” tote at the Crush House. Now, through the month of October, Peltzer will be donating $2 for the sale of each tote to local charity: Charity for Charity. Totes can be purchased at our Crush House or online. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE.


Charity for Charity is a non-profit organization here in the Temecula Valley that seeks to fulfill the wishes of community residents that are living with life threatening illnesses or traumatic injuries.


How it operates: Each year, Charity for Charity selects one adult, young adult, and child as the beneficiaries of its support. At the start of the year, they fulfill these local residents’ wishes at the “Stars of the Valley Awards Party and Benefit”. Throughout the year, they hold a series of smaller events to raise money for the support of each beneficiary.


Looking toward the future: This organization recognizes the importance in raising up those who will be the philanthropists of our future. Their scholarship program impacts the future our community by investing in students who have a heart for serving. As each year passes, Charity for Charity grows and moves forward in their goal of giving back to many of the lives in the Temecula Valley.


For more information on their stellar work in our community, visit their website HERE.
