Trentadue Winery Description

In addition to a slight nod to Sauvignon Blanc, this destination winery concentrates on red wines, with almost 90 percent coming from their own estate vineyard. Try their sparkling wine, or one or two of their four different port wines. Food pairing classes, VIP tasting, and a great gift shop add to the experience.

In the 1950s the Trentadue family were farmers in the now-famous Silicon Valley; they came to Sonoma to escape the encroaching development. They planted classic Italian grapevines such as Sangiovese and Carignane, and soon learned that the land’s unique climate and soils were best suited for richly flavored red wines such as Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1984, Trentadue Winery was the first California winery to release a wine made from 100 percent Sangiovese grapes (the main grape used in Italy for Chianti).

Their 206-acre estate has great visitor facilities. A covered picnic area resides in a park-like setting surrounded by a grove of redwood trees. There is event space along with gardens, fountains and the occasional Roman column.

Trentadue’s mustard-yellow, Italian-style villa is tastefully designed, with tapestries and ribbons festooned on the walls. The room has a deli case with cheeses and meats, wine books, logo clothing and large-format bottles for sale. The concrete tasting bar provides a solid foundation on which to sample their many wines. A television monitor is attached to the wall with a touch screen system to learn about the winery and their vineyards.

The “Old Patch Vineyard” has vines averaging 115 years old and is the source of “Old Patch Red,” which is 76 percent Zinfandel, 16 percent Petite Sirah and 8 percent Carignane. Trentadue's traditional approach to winemaking is to extract plenty of flavor and intensity from the grapes, creating long-lived and food-friendly wines.

Glass Man, Anaheim Hills
Trentadue, near Geyserville: Beautiful winery, we ate at a covered patio amoungst the huge redwoods. Wines were ok, but not worth the money. $30 to $35. 107 degrees when we left at 1PM on September 27.

Most disappointing experience ever
Confused by the ratings? Let me explain. I have never, ever been so poorly treated at a tasting room in all of our 6 years of visiting Sonoma County. Never. Not once. Nothing close. We were the ONLY patrons in the tasting room and still could barely keep the server's attention. The manager who was on site was not only disengaged, but totally oblivious that we were trying to spend considerable amounts of money at his facility for specialty items. We are just wondering if we will actually receive our order from them. And the sad part is that the facility is beautifully appointed for an outdoor wedding or other signficant gathering- they have done a REALLY good job for that, but if the people who staffed the tasting room when we were there are in charge- don't even think about it. Hate to be negative, especially when I love their chocoalte port so much, but I wouldn't even send an enemy to the tasting room- honest.

Love their wines
Wino, San Francisco
Loved these wines. The reds are really spectacular. Try the Sangiovese and you will be a fan. The place is very relaxing and has a lovely ambiance.

Got to check this place out
James, Sacremento
Neat place with lots of bells and whistles. This place is very classy without being over the top. We liked trying the Italian wines and the other reds. We stayed for a picnic which was grand. They do classes and such so may try that another time. Highly recommended.
