The 2019 season had an interesting mix of conditions to say the least! We had a lot of rain in March and in May, fire in October with evacuations and power outages, other than that the quality was spectacular! The only grapes not harvested before the fire started was our small block of Montepulciano, but we managed to harvest before the fire became more serious. Otherwise the growing season was relatively mild and long without any heat waves or other surprises. The crop yields were lower than 2018 and the quality was high. There are two different ways to make Rose out of red grapes: one is to make it as if the grapes were white by pressing them immediately after harvesting and fermenting the juice only; the other way is called saignee or “bleeding” the juice from the fermenters prior red wine fermentation. In 2019 we harvested the Sangiovese grapes from the older block 601 about 10 days before the red wine harvest. After immediate pressing of the juice and settling the fermentation took place in stainless tank at very low temperature for a long time to preserve more of the delicate and exuberant aromas of young Sangiovese. Post fermentation, portion of the wine was aged briefly in neutral oak barrels and small stainless barrels. 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 viscos with slight sweetness, bright acidity, juicy and refreshing. Enjoy this wine well chilled with or without food, it will be equally satisfying. Cheers.
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 statewide 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 1896 and it is well passed its heavy bearing years. The vines are also dry farmed and that contributes to the lower yields as well. Our 2018 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. Cheers!
Our 2018 Sangiovese was made mostly from the new Block 602 Brunello Clone. The maturing vines have become more balanced and that affects the flavor profile of our Sangiovese in a very positive way. The weather and the precise timing of irrigations (or lack of) decreased the berry size of the Sangiovese significantly and that contribute to more concentration and intensity in the wine. In addition to the consistent Asian spices, dried cranberries and bright cherries now we see deeper and more complex aromas and flavor of dark stone fruit, blackberries and cassis. The wine is darker and more focused and sophisticated. The oak aging added additional aromas of vanilla, maple, toast and a hint of cinnamon to the already spicy and complex wine. The mouth feel is also typical for Sangiovese-bright acidity, soft tannins, medium body and a medium long but juicy finish. Sangiovese is one of the most food friendly grape varietals and has a special affinity to dishes based on tomatoes and tomato sauces. Cheers!
Our Malbec is one of the youngest blocks on the Estate planted in 2016, located at the Independence lane Exit of HW 101. That section of the property has the best soils of the Estate. Malbec is one of the 5 major Bordeaux varieties in France also widely planted in Argentina and Chile. The variety is known for great color, lower acidity, and low tannin content. 2019 was the first crop from the young vines limited to one cluster per cane. The wine is dark red, showing off intense blue berry and cassis aromas with a hint of mint and earthy minerality. The mouthfeel is very soft and rich for a young wine with low acidity that makes the finish long and lush. Drink now or hold for another 1-3 years. Cheers!
This wine is exclusively available for our Wine Club members.
Montepulciano, an important grape variety from Central Italy, was planted on our Estate fourteen years ago but it was only 4 rows of vines. We liked it so much that 8 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 10 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 2018 is our second year of updated line of more upscale and unique blends under the Trentadue label. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels all made 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.
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 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. The mouth feel is generous and rich, with tamed acidity and long and round finish. Drink now, through 2025. Cheers!
45% Sangiovese 31% Montepulciano 24% Merlot
The 2018 La Storia Zin is a blend of 63% Blocks 303 Zinfandel and 21% Block 305 with small percentage of the new Block 406 Petite Sirah. All Zin blocks in 2018 were harvested in mid to late 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 intense “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 patience and proper aging in 2-5 years it will be even better. Cheers!
We harvested the 2018 Merlot Block 500 grapes on October 2nd. The average sugar at harvest was 25.5 Brix- ideal for making high quality, age worthy wines. Post fermentation the wine was aged on the grape skins for total of 21 days. Post pressing the wine was racked twice and pumped into 30% new, mostly French and other European oak barrels, the rest went into older , mixed barrels. Majority of the wine for the final La Storia blend came from Block 500 with few barrels added from block 510. Our 2018 La Storia Merlot is and has been consistently fine example of the ability of this classic Bordeaux variety to make solid, tasty and age worthy wines. 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. On the mouth the wine is soft and viscous, balancing the acidity and the tannins well for such a young wine. The finish is long and soft with suggestion of sweetness backed by ripe tannins. This wine will age well and will reward your patience if stored well in the next 3-6 years. Cheers!
The grapes for our 2018 Cabernet were harvested at the end of October 15th and October 19th, 2018. After destemming and cold soaking for 3 days the grapes were fermented using native and “designer “yeast for average of 10 days. Post fermentation all lots were put through extended maceration for another 30-40 days. The wine was aged for 20 months in 23% new French and other European Oak barrels and the rest in neutral oak barrels. Our 2018 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 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 2018 La Storia Petite Sirah was made by blending most of our best blocks of Petite Syrah including some Zin and Syrah. Petite Sirah grapes are very sensitive to wet weather conditions but luckily all blocks were ripe and ready for harvesting before the rain in mid-October. The 2018 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!
From over 200 tons of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes, only 8 barrels in total made it into this blend. This is a very showy wine with huge blackberry and blueberry aromas, with hints of smoke and toast.
This wine is dark purple in color, very attractive with intense blueberry and blackberry aromas, slighty smokey with hints of maple and brown sugar.
The 2014 growing season was nearly perfect, delivering bright and fruity aromas and deep dark color with a higher than normal acidity, suggesting a better affinity with food. The mouth feel is medium to full with relatively dense tannins with an long and fresh finish.
The 2015 growing season started off a bit on the cool weather side but summer was nearly perfect with the exception of a heat wave at the beginning of harvest. A tribute to our Matriarch, Evelyn Trentadue, this wine has a medium to full mouth feel and a long juicy finish. Drink now through 2020.
2014 Harvest began with one of the earliest bud breaks in history. Our Old Vine block 601 Sangiovese was the first one to awaken in March 10th. The rest of the varieties followed with 3 weeks earlier than normal bud break and as you may guessed it the harvest started record early as well. Other than that the growing conditions were just about perfect with normal to slightly below normal yields. The grapes for our 2014Leo’s Pride were harvested the last week of September, 2014. After destemming and cold soaking for 5 days the grapes were fermented using native and “designer “yeast for average of 10 days. Post fermentation all lots were put through extended maceration for another 21 days. Leo’s Pride Cabernet is a commemorative bottling honoring Trentadue founder Leo Trentadue. The conceptual Lion’s head on the label is a link to more than a dozen lion sculptures around the estate. Our 2014 Leo’s Pride 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 and other European oak barrels aging contributes aromas of vanilla, cocoa dust and slight toast.

The alcohol content is modest and the acidity is relatively high suggesting excellent longevity for this wine. Cheers!

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.
The 2019 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 pair well with variety of foods, but it is also very enjoyable on its own. Our 2019 OPR is delicious now but it will reward your patience with 2-5 years of aging. Cheers!
Aromas of white peaches and apricots this dessert wine is exceptional with pears, apples and soft cheeses. Perfect Holiday dessert!
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!
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.
