General Information

History

Located in the heart of Alexander Valley is Trentadue Winery; a family-owned estate with over 200 acres of grapes of exceptional quality, beautiful tasting gardens and the top wedding venue in Sonoma County.  Growers in the valley since the 1950’s, the Trentadue Estate has been providing top wineries with world class Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, as well as crafting Estate wines since 1969.  With the third generation now involved in one of the valley’s oldest family-owned wineries, we are committed to showcasing only the best of what our 200 acre Estate can produce.

Winegrowing

For over 55 years, we have been growing premium wine grapes, with some vines dating back to 1886.  Our farming practices reflect our commitment to exceptional fruit quality and our stewardship of the land from which it comes.  We strive to balance the traditions of the area’s early Italian growers and the ever-evolving viticulture industry.  Sustainable agriculture is practiced, as we are stewards of our land and utilize all of the elements available to put the most we can offer into each bottle of wine while retaining the viability of our Estate for generations to come. 

Winemaking

"My philosophy in a nut shell is to make the best wine possible from the grapes grown on the Trentadue Estate; with the greatest respect to specific Terroir, allowing every vintage and variety to express itself without restriction and intervention. After more than twenty years of making wine I’ve become to realize that learning is an ongoing process and a never ending quest for that “perfect” wine. The more I learn the more I see the many possibilities for fine tuning both grape growing and the winemaking. Every vintage year brings new specific conditions that need to be evaluated quickly, and experience, “gut feelings” and a dose of some luck will lead to making that perfect wine. In the cellar the wines are made by using the best of what modern winemaking has to offer but those old world methods and practices that have been proven throughout the centuries cannot be forgotten."
