About Trinchero Napa Valley

Trinchero Napa Valley produces small lots of single-vineyard wines. With vineyards located throughout Napa Valley, we focus on showcasing the unique effect of terroir.

Winemakers will tell you that fine wine comes from somewhere, meaning it’s the land that makes the wine, not the brand. Trinchero Napa Valley stands as a testament to that belief, its emphasis on producing and showcasing wines not shy about expressing their place of origin. Want to know what makes Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the valley floor different from Cabernet grown in the mountains? Interested in how the grapes from atop Atlas Peak on the valley’s east side compare to the grapes from atop Mt. Veeder on the valley’s west side? This is the place to discover the answers. The Trinchero family has been producing fine wine in the valley since 1948, along the way obtaining small vineyard sites in specific areas targeted for their uniqueness. They own six vineyard sites in five of the valley’s designated appellations and produce their wines in a new estate located just north of downtown St. Helena. Come explore our new tasting room that opened July of 2016. Here, the wines are showcased in a warm, inviting space where the past is honored while the present is celebrated. Mario Trinchero arrived in Napa Valley from New York City in 1948 and began laying the foundation that today supports one of the most successful family wine businesses in the nation. 70 years later, Trinchero Napa Valley serves as a beacon, heralding both our roots and our future in the Napa Valley. Our wines reflect our most pristine, estate-grown grapes, thoughtfully tended in the vineyard and ultimately hand-picked and scrupulously hand-sorted in the cellar. Hundreds of small steps are taken every day to ensure we create truly unique wines, handcrafted with care and integrity. We focus on small-lot winemaking, with unwavering attention to detail, to yield luxury wines that embody quality and dedication to the craft. Winemaker Mario Monticelli guides each wine every step of the way.

The tasting was excellent because my boyfriend and I each got a different flight, and we tasted each other’s wines so we were able to sample a broader repertoire. The staff (I think Lauren?) was very knowledgeable about the wines and the region. We were interested to learn that the family owns Sutter Home because Trinchero is so beautiful and upscale.

She was also vey helpful in suggesting other things to do and see on the second part of our vacation in Carmel. Great, a winner!

We joined the club on the spot and they comped our tasting. We can’t wait to have Nathan teach us more. We will definitely ask for him again.

I had higher expectations but was disappointed with the service and quality of the wine. WE were hosted by a new employee who was clearly still learning. I understand people have to learn, but since I am paying and expect quality service it would be better that we are served by an experienced person while the trainee observes. The guests shouldnt get a lesser experience because of your training

I have been a Legacy club member at Trinchero for close to 4 years now and have enjoyed many of their "specials". Most recently we got treated with a Food and Wine pairing experience that was simply delightful. This winery offers wonderful wines and takes the meaning of "hospitality" to a superior level. Planning to stay a member for many harvests to come, Thank you.

WOW. Every aspect of our experience was 10 plus. We arranged a wine pairing event. Brenden was our Sommelier who explanated the wine with the food. He made your mouth water prior to tasting the food and wine. Did I mention the chef came out during the service to describe each course and made note to listen to Brenden as he described our pairings. The winery is absolutely beautiful!!! VISIT!!

At first I felt he might be a little young to really engage us but I was pleasantly surprised. He knew a great deal about Trinchero, the owners, the wines...our tasting was very tailored to suit the different tastes of our group of seven. Brendan was fabulous!

This experience was one of the best I've had not only at Trinchero but also at many of the wineries I'm a member of. The plate of charcuterie, cheese, olives, fig cake .. was of best quality. The tasting itself allows a variety of choices, vineyard to vineyard on Malbec and Cab sauvignon, as well as mini-verticals with great library wines. My French guests were absolutely delighted too.
