Summer is here and we are ready to enjoy all the season has to offer. From grilling out with friends to Happy Hour Thursdays at the Trentadue Estate, here’s our guide to making the most of this summer, Trentadue style!
Fire up the grill Our Alexander Valley vineyards produce wines with bright fruit and balanced structure that’s easily ready to age, or pop open today! Here’s an easy guide to what wine to drink with whatever you’re throwing on the grill.
Chicken: The Rhone-style influence of our 2016 OPR Red blend is a combo of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Syrah for a fruity yet complex intensity that plays easily with your favorite spice rubbed chicken.
Steak: Abundant in ripe black fruit and herbaceous notes, our 2016 La Storia Cabernet is a primed pairing for a juicy, marbled steak. Medium density mouthfeel, fresh and juicy with a balanced acidity, this vintage showcases soft tannins even in its youth.
Lamb: Tame the game with our bright fruited, zippy 2017 Trentadue Sangiovese. This versatile, light-bodied red is perfect when served at cellar temp and can hold its own and provide some character when paired with red meat.
Roasted Veg: Rosé goes with everything but is particularly good to hold up to a nice char on some summer-time vegetables. Think of our 2018 Rosato di Sangiovese the perfect companion to your salad courses and even into your main meal. Keep plenty of chilled bottles at the ready, you won’t be able to stop drinking it!
Rosé the Day Away Our 2018 Rosato di Sangiovese always sells out before summer’s end so be sure to grab a case (or two) quick! Made from Sangiovese grapes from our Alexander Valley vineyards, this expression of Rosé contributes spice, bright red fruits and perfectly balanced acidity for a summer sipping wine that you’ll want to enjoy all season long.
Better yet, grab a govino and throw a couple bottles in the cooler to take with you wherever the weekends of Summer take you! Whether you’re heading to the closest beach (like one of these hidden Sonoma Coast beach getaways) or getting out for some lake-time fun adventures our Rosato di Sangiovese is the ticket to your best summer vibes.
Is It Happy Hour Thursday yet? When the kitchen is too hot to cook, and the week is almost over, come on over to our Estate for Happy Hour Thursday! We have local Sonoma County food trucks, rockin’ bands to set the mood, and our dog-friendly lawn open to enjoy summer with you the way it’s meant to be. Our wine bar is pouring your favorite Trentadue wines, and best of all, it’s FREE to come and hang out with us. There is no cover charge to come jam out with us with our gorgeous Alexander Valley vineyards as the backdrop for the kind of summer nights you’ll always remember.
Whether you’re able to come enjoy summer in wine country here with us at our Sonoma County Estate, or you’re raising a glass with us from afar, make sure you have plenty of your favorite Trentadue wines to pair with all the summer fun to come!
