Montepulciano, an important grape variety from Central Italy, was planted on our Estate thirteen years ago but it was only 4 rows of vines. We liked it so much that 6 years ago we planted additional 1.5 acres of the certified Italian clone VCR 10. We found out that this variety is late ripening, even later then the Cabernet Sauvignon. There are currently less than 11 tons harvested of this variety in Sonoma County. It is the grower’s variety-with its beautiful and perfect, dark berried clusters, uniformly hanging from the vines. The 2016 is our second harvest from the young vines. Honoring the Trentadue family heritage and traditions we offer you this classic Italian variety. The wine is deeply colored, with intense blueberry and plum aromas, solid tannins and firm acidity.
Available for purchase in the Tasting Room Only.
In California Carignane was grown state wide and it was the base for many wonderful wines in the early days of winemaking. Today a few rare old vineyards such as Trentadue Estate are still standing and proudly producing delicious wines. This grape is a relatively late ripening variety and it has a tendency to produce large crop given the opportunity. Our Old Vines were planted back in 1896 and well pass their heavy bearing years. The vines are also dry farmed and that contributes to the lower yields as well. Our 2016 Carignane exhibits abundant aromas and flavors of Bing cherries, dark plums and wild berries. The mouth feel supports medium body with fresh acidity and a long fruity finish. Only 14 % new oak barrels were used during the aging of this wine in order to preserve it’s natural freshness and delicate aromas and flavors. Serve with roasted meats, savory vegetable dishes and a variety of rustic cheeses. Cheers!
Our 2016 Petite Sirah has a very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blue berries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. After short aeration the nose opens up with the addition of cocoa, slight earthiness followed by brown sugar and a touch of vanilla-contribution of the new oak barrels. Overall the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. This wine will definitely age well and if stored properly it will give you the most enjoyment in 3-6 years.
The flavor profile of our Rosato di Sangiovese is amazing –guava, peach, apricot and water melon followed by touch of Asian spices and a hint of rose petals. The mouth feel is viscous with slight sweetness, bright acidity, juicy and refreshing. Enjoy this wine well chilled with or without food, it will be equally satisfying!
Our 2016 Merlot is a fine example of the ability of this classic Bordeaux variety to make solid, tasty and age worthy wines. The 2016 growing season was nearly perfect and very similar to the great 2012 and 2013 delivering bright and fruity aromas and deep dark color with a bit higher than normal acidity suggesting better affinity with food. The main aromas and flavors are of dark cherry, plums, a bit of black licorice and herbs. The new oak barrels contribute a touch of vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa dust and toast.
The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zin” aromas predominant dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The judicious fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium to full body and very soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity.
This vintage is unique because the blend has a large percentage of Montepulciano from our new 1.5 acre vineyard. The 2015 vintage produced wines with dark red color, bright fruit and firm acidity and well-structured tannins destined to age well. The 2015 Cuvee 32 has intense cherry/cassis aromas contributed by the Sangiovese followed by deeper red fruit aromas of plums, blueberry and a hint of pomegranate. Typical for the blend is an enticing mixture of herbs and spices making the wine particularly enjoyable with Italian style food.
This wine is dark purple in color, very attractive with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas, slighty smokey with hints of maple and brown sugar.

Our 2016 La Storia Cab has a dense ruby-purple color followed by abundant varietal aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberry and black licorice with hint of herbs and ripe olives. The predominately French oak aging contributes aromas of vanilla, cocoa dust and slight toast.

The alcohol content is balanced and the acidity is relatively high suggesting excellent longevity for this wine. Drink now or age for 5-7 years.
Our 2018 Chardonnay has a typical for the variety and the style aromas of tropical fruits, ripe apples, peaches and apricots. Further aeration reveals deeper aromas of toast with a touch of caramel and ripe Mayer lemons meringue and a bit of minerality.

Our 2013 Merlot Port was made mostly from our block 510. The 510 block is on a very sandy/clay soils and the vines tend to be stressed and therefore producing low yields of very concentrated grapes and wine. The grapes were harvested at 25.5 brix sugar. Unoaked grape brandy was added at the proper time to stop the fermentation and preserve some of the unfermented sugar. After pressing the wine was aged in small neutral oak barrels for 3 years and 8 months. The nose is of sweet ripe cherries, plums and blueberry syrup, slightly peppery. The mouth feel is sweet but with perceptible very soft tannins. The relatively high acid keeps the sugar in balance and will ensure the longevity of this wine. Enjoy it on its own or with your favorite desserts and cheeses. Cheers!
This is a vintage style port from the classic California Zinfandel grape. The grapes were harvested for the last time from Block 315 at an average 31 Brix (that property was sold shortly after harvest). The higher sugar produced more natural alcohol and therefore the brandy addition was very small. After the first rack the port was aged in 25% new and the rest older barrels for 19 months. The finish is mouth-coating with a medium to heavy body carrying lingering flavors of syrupy raspberry and blackberry. Dark and massively fruity without being overripe, this port will age gracefully for at least a decade or two. Cheers!
Our 2013 Petite Sirah Port was made from our block 400 which is one of the oldest “new” blocks planted back in 1996. The 400 block is on a very dry gravely soils and the grapes tend to be stressed and ripen at lower sugar. The sugar at harvest was 27.5 Brix, so we needed about 13% of brandy to make it into delicious port styled wine. After pressing, the wine was aged in small neutral oak barrels for 19 months. The nose is of sweet ripe blueberries, plums and blackberry syrup. The mouth feel is sweet but with perceptible tannins. The relatively high acid keeps the sugar in balance and will ensure the longevity of this wine. Enjoy it on its own or with your favorite dessert and cheeses.
Our 2007 Angelica is made from Mission grapes-once abundant now very hard to find. The grapes and the wine made from them have a long history in California dating back to the first years of colonization when the Franciscan monks made very sweet, high alcohol wine for sacramental purposes. There are two ways to make Angelica: fortifying unfermented juice and the “port” style-fermenting the juice to some degree and than adding the brandy. This wine was fermented for about four days before the addition of brandy. At the time of these notes the wine has been aged for more than three years in small neutral oak barrels. The sugar level at bottling is about 12%-not too sweet with balancing acidity. The flavors and aromas are very interesting-creamy, sherry like but with obvious fruit aromas-plums, dates, raisins and slight nuttiness. Further aeration reveals layers of brown sugar and maple syrup coated hazelnuts. On the mouth the wine is sweet, warm and silky with seductive finish begging for another sip. Enjoy it by itself or with your favorite deserts or cheeses! This Angelica should age well for many years to come!
We produce this opulent dessert wine from Merlot grapes grown on our Geyserville Ranch. Borrowing from the traditions of port making, we add neutral grape spirits to stop fermentation trapping a percentage of sugar in the wine. Once Chocolate Amore is finished aging and is ready for bottling, we infuse a tiny amount of natural chocolate extract to the final blend, creating the perfect marriage of food and wine. This Merlot-based, port-styled chocolate flavored dessert wine is great over vanilla ice cream or as a stand-alone dessert.
