“ Rich and dramatic, packed with red and black currant, and sandalwood flavors. This is a very intense wine, impressive for its power.”

Trione Primitivo Braised Short Ribs
2 bottles Trione Primitivo
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 each short ribs cut 2” wide
To Taste kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper
2 each yellow onions, peeled, trimmed, split, rinsed and
2 each carrots, peeled, cut into ½” wheels
2 ribs celery, peeled, cut into 1-inch lengths
12 cloves garlic, peeled
6 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
2 each bay leaves
1bunch fresh thyme
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 quarts beef broth
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees
Generously season the short ribs with salt & pepper. In a heavy, oven proof pot, add the oil.
When the oil is hot brown the ribs. When completely brown remove the ribs and set aside.
Reduce the heat and add the vegetables and herbs, brown the vegetables for 7 – 10 minutes then add the tomato paste and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes constantly stirring. Deglaze with the
wine and reduce by ½. Add the beef broth and cover the pot tightly and place in the oven until
meat is fork tender, approximately 2 hours.
Let the mixture cool rest overnight in the refrigerator.
The following day warm the mixture and remove the meat. Reduce the liquid until a sauce
consistency is achieved and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Check for seasoning with salt and pepper.
Harvest is just around the corner! Where has the year gone?
A word from Kris, our Vineyard Manager:
“Right now the Chardonnays are getting finished with bloom and the Cabs and other varietals are about 50% of the way. We are working about 60 hours a week suckering the vines. With the warm weather the plants are growing like crazy. We are doing everything we can to keep up. We want to be finished suckering a week or so after bloom to help improve set in the berries.”
Exciting things are happening for Team Trione, we have three new Team members: Sam Tesconi, Reed Ackerman and Sharon Kaizer. Come by and say hello and show them the love!

Wow! Trione wines are being loved all over! We are excited to share our latest wine review from Narsi David of KCBS. Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and clean with lingering citrus and a mineral note on the finish. Pair this with crab cakes or shrimp ceviche. Delicious!

We are very excited to have brought in 16 tons of Pinot Noir on our first day of harvest for 2012! Today we are bringing in Chardonnay and it looks (and tastes) delicious! Most of the fruit now from our Russian River ranch is all in and next week are taking a closer look at our Alexander Valley ranches. The weather is heating up so this could happen quick!
At our August winemaker dinner, we had two pigs: Wild VS. Domestic! The wild hog was shot by Mark Trione on the Trione family’s “Flat Ridge Ranch” the week before!
