Trinitas Cellars Blog
In a modern age of Facebook and “Facetime,” finding a traditional relationship with same morals and values can be difficult to find. Wine Society Members since June 2013, Elona and Paul Rapp found each other using the modern convenience of Match.com.
Elona’s previous residence was in Lodi and Paul’s in San Ramon. Had it not been for today’s technology, they might have never met. They were so close yet so far from each other. “We never would have been introduced if it wasn’t for online dating.”
From the day that they met, they have not been inseparable. Not only did they share the same family values and traditions but they had so much in common. Their love for wine and travel has led them many parts of the world including Napa.
Elona and Paul have made Trinitas Cellars and the Meritage Resort a part of their love story. “I asked for Elona’s hand in marriage as I knelt in front of her at a look-out that stood directly above the wine cave where we would be married less than a year later.”
Elona found it only appropriate to use our estate cave to hold their wedding ceremony and reception.
“The venue couldn’t have been more magical. Jaws dropped at the sight of the beautiful and warmly lit wine cave where we would eventually exchange our vows.”
We have been so lucky to have Elona and Paul as Wine Society members and to be a part of their love story!
Cheers to you both and your happily ever after!

I've been feeling under the weather and received a package from Mr. and Mrs. Beedle that really brightened my day...
Robert and April Beedle have been Trinity Club Wine Society members of Trinitas Cellars since April 2011. Since the Beedles live in AK, we have happily customized their Wine Society orders to help save on shipping expenses. Mr. Beedle is always a pleasure to speak with on the phone. The last time we spoke he mentioned that he wanted to send me some wild caught smoked salmon that he himself had cured and caught. I was delighted to receive this wonderful gift during such a stressful week. His handwritten card and nice words really made me smile. It is members like the Beedles that remind us of all of the wonderful lives that we touch everyday.
Thank you Beedles! Cheers to you!
