Trefethen Family Vineyards

Napa, California

http://www.trefethen.com

  • Trefethen prefers a style that is balanced, artful, and food-friendly. This is made possible by the relatively cool climate of their estate vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley.
  • Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has focused, bright fruit flavours, juxtaposed by savoury earth tones.
  • Estate Chardonnay is fresh, bright, and lively, with apple blossom, white peach, and subtle toasted oak notes.
  • Harmony Chardonnay has plenty of volume, with elegant and exquisite minerality, honeysuckle and brioche characteristics.
  • “Dragon’s Tooth is inspired by cool foggy mornings when mist envelops the vineyard, and our minds tend towards whimsical imaginings.” Powerful aromas of bramble, cinnamon, and vanilla. Balanced and supple, with a mouthwateringly smooth finish.

” It was never clear how this adventure was going to turn out. In the late 60’s when my family started to grow wine grapes in Napa Valley, there was no one to show them the way. There was plenty of advice, to be sure, but in truth no one had started a successful Napa vineyard since Prohibition. They were, in a word, crazy. “

Their lunacy was infectious, however, and a few other enterprising souls joined the gambit: Tony Baldini, our first viticulturist; David Whitehouse, our first “real” winemaker; Richard DeGarmo, Mr. fix-it; Mary Ware, queen of the office and everyone’s schedule. I grew up with them and consider them all family. A shared passion brought them to us, and my parents received them with open arms. They settled into their respective posts, not as hired hands, but as equals in a shared endeavor. As I settle into my own role in the family business, I find this remarkable dynamic preserved and count myself blessed to spend my days working with old and new friends that quickly feel like family.

The land focuses our energies, as it always has, challenging us to understand its soils, the vines that grow in them, and the way fog drifts through the rows in the morning. It is an eternal learning process – each question answered reveals another be asked – but it’s a journey we love to take with each and every vintage. It also defines us and the wines we make, providing the vital essence of every bottle that bears our name. Decisions made in the vineyard and cellar not only guide the expression of the land, but affect the very soul of the wine. For this reason, we have always committed ourselves to estate production, adamant that we should be the ones growing the grapes and turning them into wine. Our passion requires it.

One Family. One Estate. One Passion. This is who we are.
