Welcome to the Trinitas Cellars Blog! We hope you join us for frequent updates on our vineyards, production, tasting room and wine education.
Grape growers and winemakers in Napa Valley are a lot like 7 year old kids at Christmas Time – kids write to Santa Claus asking for all their wishes to come true. We in the wine business cast our wishes to the Wine Gods as our growing season evolves. We wish for warm, not hot, days; cool, not cold, nights; breezes in the summer, but not the spring; low rainfall, but not TOO low; etc. etc. etc. Normally in the Napa Valley we are blessed with most of our wishes. And, now and then, we get everything we wished for – the 7 year old kid version of the pony on the front lawn on Christmas morning. 2007 was just such a year. We were blessed with perfect growing conditions and our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from that year is our shining example. Big, yet smooth, with mouth filling fruitiness and soft, subtle tannins. Great with a big juicy steak or a dark chocolat tort. It is about to enter the endangered species list here at Trinitas, so come and either get it or regret it!
Somehow I just am out of the loop! Apparently you can book your reservations for the Trinitas Library on our website at: /Visit-Us/The-Trinitas-Library
Hope to see you at the Trinitas Library on Wednesday 2.19.2014 when we officially open!
Zinfandel. A grape of many styles, intriguing history and tons of versatility. I chose the El Dorado Zinfandel as my wine of the week, not just because I hail from the El Dorado/Amador areas, but because it has all three of my red wine “R”’s = rich, robust, and refined. Full bodied with juicy raspberry, black cherry and red currant with nuances of tobacco leaf and a hint of black pepper, it could be paired with sirloin steak, tomato based pasta dishes or even josh rogan. This is my wine when I need a hearty wine with hearty food!
For more on the 2010 El Dorado Zin, visit our online Wine Shop, or stop by the tasting room for a glass!
Our Wine Club Manager, Lucy, loves her fiancé Daniel, her puppy Diego and our Trinitas 2011 Carneros Chardonnay. Between the butterscotch and caramel apple notes Lucy can’t resist pouring herself a glass of this Chardonnay. For those that are craving the taste of crème brûlée and have an addiction to caramelized sugar this 2011 Carneros Chardonnay is just for you!
Check out more details on the wine in our wine shop!
I am especially excited to announce the release of our new 2011 Father Mathew Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a very special wine for a variety of reasons. This wine is the first single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that Trinitas Cellars has produced. The vineyard is owned by St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Yountville, right in the heart of the Napa Valley. The vineyard, Fr. Mathew's Vineyard, was named after an influential pastor at the Church. This is an amazing Cabernet vineyard and produces one of our finest wines in flavor and even more so in spirit. Every year 100% of the money that Trinitas pays for the grapes goes to a local charity of the Church's choice. Choosing to drink a delicious Napa Cabernet like Father Mathew’s Cab is choosing to support this amazing Napa Valley community and we thank you for your help!

Ahhhhhh…Petite Sirah – LOVE it! And what’s not to love? Deep, lush fruit.. big flavors, but without the bite. Nuthin’ “petite” about it – this big boy will more than handle a steak, game meats, and don’t get me started about lamb and Petite Sirah! It is “Trinitas-ty"!
