We cultivate more than 650 vineyard acres in Russian River, Alexander Valley and Sonoma Coast — three Sonoma County appellations known for outstanding grapes. Winemaker, John Duckett selects fruit from distinct blocks on each property for Trione Wines. Vineyard Operations Manager Kris Hicks works closely with John throughout the growing season, hand harvesting the grapes at peak ripeness.
"Our vision was to look at the grapes that we had; all of the varieties from the several ranches and appellations and take the top three percent to make Trione wines. We'd select the varieties from locations where we thought the soil was the best and the clones were the finest and bring those into our winery. We wanted to do something that set us apart from many other wineries. With the technology in the wine industry being so shared, the difference is the vineyards."
