"Trentadue is one of the most reliable wineries in Sonoma. They consistently make not only great values, but top world-class wines as well." ~ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The Trentadue family arrived in Sonoma County long before the region gained a reputation as the Wine Country. Life-long, hands-on agriculturists, Evelyn and Leo Trentadue contributed significantly to the advancement of their region. In 1959, the Trentadues decided to flee the developers encroaching on their apricot and cherry orchards in Sunnyvale, the area known today around the world as Silicon Valley. To preserve their way of life, these hard-working Italian ranchers purchased more than 200 acres of land in Sonoma County's then remote Alexander Valley. Since 1969, Trentadue Winery has produced affordable, every day wine, without a sacrifice on quality. The Trentadue wines prove that excellence in grape growing and wine making don’t require a hefty price tag.
For more than 40 years, they have also produced dessert wines, and in fact Trentadue is one of the top producers of port-style wine in California. From traditional vintage Zinfandel and Petite Syrah Ports to specially-aged Angelica and Chocolate Amore, Trentadue winery has become synonymous with Port wine and the California wine industry.
