Trentadue California Champagne Rose is created using only select premium varietal wines. It is especially formulated to make it versatile, ideal for serving as an aperitif or to accompany hors d’oevres and light food of all kinds. It is an attractively delicate, fruity wine with a smooth, crisp finish. Trentadue California Champagne Rose is made mostly from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the Mendocino and Lodi regions, using the Charmat process. The base still wine is put through secondary fermentation in small 1,000-2,000 gallon glass lined tanks and the process takes about 45 days to complete. The result is a slightly sweet, mellow style Champagne with clean fruitiness and balanced acidity, a sparkling wine with a delicate flavor layered over impressions of strawberry, rose petals and watermelon. While we associate Champagne with special occasions and the holiday season, sparkling wines are great just about any time, as a cocktail before dinner, with lighter fare, and with dessert. Whatever your setting or occasion, Trentadue Champagne is a great choice for value and quality.
Named for the Saignee method of “bleeding” a portion of the juice from the red fermenter, this wine exhibits refreshing aromas of guava, peach, apricot and watermelon with a hint of rose petals. Perfect for backyard barbeques and the beach!
There were times when Carignane was the most planted grape variety in the world. Its origins are from the coastal vineyards of the Mediterranean Sea. 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. Only one acre remains of our Old Vines planted back in 1935 and it is well pass its heavy bearing years. The vines are also dry farmed and that contributes to the lower yields as well. Our 2017 Carriage House Carignane exhibits abundant aromas and flavors of Bing cherries, dark plums and wild berries. There is an intricate complexity in this wine often associated with Old Vines. Serve with roasted meats, savory vegetable dishes and a variety of rustic cheeses.
This wine is exclusively available for our Wine Club members.
Named for Leo Trentadue’s creative ability to make something great out of very little, this wine exhibits aromas and of Asian spices and bright cherries. Pairs great with tomato based dishes, such as spaghetti Bolognese.
Produced from the oldest zinfandel block on the estate, planted in 1886 when the Victorian House next to it was in it’s prime. You can still see the Victorian House through the bushes and trees next to the old Zinfandel block to this day!
Named for the Scott Henry trellis system, which exposes grapes to more sunlight and breeze to prevent rot, as it is the system used for our Block 500 where our Merlot grapes are grown. This wine exhibits aromas of dark cherry, plums and herbs with a slightly heavy mouthfeel.
It was customary for Italian immigrants settling into the area to grow their own fruit, and the Trentadue family followed suit. Our Montepulciano is planted where one of the family’s old orchards was being farmed. This wine is deeply colored, with intense blueberry and plum aromas, solid tannins and firm acidity. Cheers!
The 2017 Trentadue Estate Hearts Desire Petite Sirah is the first vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly a winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels. All 8 barrels of Petite Sirah selection came entirely from Block 405 and it was all fermented in open top fermenters. The 2017 Petite Sirah berries were very small and slightly dehydrated resulting in an impressive wine with very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blue berries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. The aging in 60% new oak barrels brings in delicious smoky, toasty and chocolaty aromas that blend in perfectly with the fruit. Overall the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. Longevity, if stored properly, is one of the virtues of this variety and it will give you the most enjoyment in 5-8 years.
Our 2017 Cuvee 32 is the 20th vintage of this blend for Trentadue Winery. In retrospect our “Super Tuscan” blend has been very successful and consistently our top selling wine in the Tasting Room. This vintage is unique because the blend has a large percentage of Montepulciano from our new 1.5 acre vineyard and significant amount of the new Brunello Clone Sangiovese. The 2017 vintage produced wines with dark red color, bright fruit and firm acidity and well-structured tannins destined to age well. The 2017 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. With more air the wine shows more complex yet still in developing stage aromas and flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, leather and black licorice. The mouth feel is medium to full with relatively high, food friendly acidity and a long and fresh finish. Drink now through 2023. Cheers.
The 2017 Trentadue Zin was made mostly from our Blocks 303 Zinfandel and Block 304 with small percentage Block 405 Petite Sirah. All Zin blocks in 2017 were harvested in early September. About 15% of the grapes were fermented in small ½ ton open top fermenters for additional complexity of aromas and textures. The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zini” aromas of dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, maple, cinnamon 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. Zinfandels when balanced are very versatile food pairing wines with broad range and this wine will satisfy your palate with many of your favorite dishes. The wine is delicious now but with some patients and proper aging in 2-5 years it will be even better.
The main aromas and flavors are of dark cherry, blumps and a bit of black licorice. The new oak barrels contribute a touch of vanilla, brown sugar, cocoa dust and toast.
Our 2017 La Storia Cabernet Sauvignon 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 mouth feel is medium dense, fresh and juicy with balanced acidy and very soft tannins for a young wine. 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. Cheers!
The 2017 Petite Sirah berries were very small and slightly dehydrated resulting in an impressive wine with 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. Longevity, if stored properly, is one of the virtues of this variety and it will give you the most enjoyment in 5-8 years. Cheers!
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 2014 Leo's Pride is a Commemerative Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon honoring the late Leo Trentadue. The conceptional Lion's head on the label is a link to the more than doezen lion sculptures on the Estate.
This very rare and incredibly limited wine is being initially released only to Trentadue Wine Club members.
The 2018 vintage of OPR Sauvignon Blanc is our second vintage of this concept wine. The grapes are 100% from Mokelumne River region of the Lodi appellation. This year, we made our Sauvignon Blanc more in the direction of the “grassy” style on purpose, with more citrus and apple fruit and traces of melon and apricot aromas. The body is leaner and focused, with low alcohol, ?nishing on refreshingly high notes of acidity and minerality. Cheers!
The 2018 Old Patch Red is predominately Zin blended with Petite Sirah and Carignane resulting in very fruity yet complex and full bodied Rhone- like style wine. The wine has dark red color with intense black cherry aromas, blueberries and cherry cola as an immediate impression. With aeration nuances of ripe plums, vanilla and cocoa are showing with slight dose of oak and toast. On the mouth the wine is fresh and juicy with youthful brightness, finishing long and fruity. This is a wine that will drink well with variety of foods but it is also very enjoyable on its own. Our 2018 OPR is delicious now but it will reward your patience with 2-5 years of aging. Cheers!
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 2015 Petite Sirah Port was made from our block 400 which is one of the oldest 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 26.8 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 30 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. Cheers!
