Trione Vineyards

Trione Vineyards and Winery

For 35 years, the Trione family has carefully farmed and managed some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County. With painstaking devotion to the land, three generations – Henry Trione, sons Mark and Vic, and Mark’s daughter Denise – have developed a reputation for producing premium grapes. Their wines are characteristic of the appellations in which they are grown: the cool, slow-ripening flavors of the Russian River Valley, and the rich, dark-berry essence of the Alexander Valley. They are passionate about family and tradition, especially traditions that include good food and good wine. The vineyards, wines, and winery have been a labor of love, the culmination of the family’s long tradition of dedication to Sonoma County.

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2011: 100% Chardonnay. Grapes came from two blocks of ten- and twelve-year-old vines, planted with clones 4, 95, and 2-A. Whole bunches were pressed for gentle juice extraction, which was then racked directly to French oak barrels: 45% new, and the remainder one and two years old. The previous years wine lees were used to initiate a slow fermentation that took several months to complete.
