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 over the years. In 1959 these hard-working Italian ranchers purchased 208 acres of land in Sonoma County’s then remote Alexander Valley. The Trentadues were among the very first to plant new vines in Sonoma County since the days of Prohibition. In 1962, the Trentadue family began planting new Carignane vines in addition to the 68 acres of old vines already growing on their ranch. Now more than 115 years old, these vines are among the oldest producing Carignane vineyards in America. The winery has everything from traditional tastings to a gondola tour around the estate.
