With over 7,000 acres of vineyards, we feel a responsibility to the land and have sought to set a standard in environmental stewardship. That’s why we insist on using sustainable farming practices in all of our vineyards, and incorporate organic and/or biodynamic practices whenever we can. We follow the strict guidelines established by the “Code of Sustainable Winegrowing Practices” in all vineyards that are not otherwise farmed biodynamically or ogranically. Our organic vineyards adhere to the rules set up by the Certified Organic Farmers Association (CCOF). We also participate in the Napa Valley Green Farming and Fish-Friendly Farming certification programs. Our in-house composting facility converts over 15,000 tons of grape skins, seeds and stems into valuable fertilizer for our vineyards. Rather than use chemicals in our vineyards, we strive to use natural combatants whenever possible. Trinchero Family Estates strictly prohibits the use of potentially hazardous chemicals like methyl bromide, karmex and omite in all company vineyards. Instead, we use botanical oils and use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to naturally control vineyard pest problems and minimize the use of agricultural pesticides. At our winery’s production facilities, we have managed to decrease our water consumption to 1.5 gallons per gallon of wine produced — in contrast, the average winery uses 5-6 gallons of water to make a single gallon of wine. Plus, all of the water used in production is treated in-house and used to irrigate our vineyards and landscaping. Read less

I would give this 3.75 stars. I had the 2008 last night at a very nice restaurant. It was one of the cheaper offerings---$32 a bottle. It was delicious. I had it with a blue cheese & pear salad, grilled salmon with saffron buerre blanc. It had more body than most Pinot Noirs....with a fabulous lingering soft tannin silky finish. Imagine my surprise when I was able to order a case for $5.99 a bottle!

We were able to buy it at Trader Joe's for a very short time and found it comparable in bouquet and taste to many more expensive pinots!

This wine has the word 'Trinity' in its name and in fact, there are three remarkable things about it. The first is that it tastes SO good. The second is that the fruit really does come from California and the third is the unbelievable price. We haven't tasted a value Pinot this good from California in long time. Because of limited availability, many California wineries were reduced to sourcing Pinot from Southern France, South America and Italy, but Trinity Oaks is all California. The Trinchero family, who makes it, own some of the most extensive vineyard holdings in California. They've brought top quality fruit from their Central Valley and the Central Coast vineyards, aged it in French and American oak and produced a delicious and very affordable Pinot, with ripe strawberry and black cherry nuances. Grab it. Trinity Oaks partners with Trees for the Future to restore tree cover and improve the environment in developing countries around the globe. They're committed to planting a tree for every bottle of wine they sell, so your purchase will aid in that effort.
