Sutter Home

The winery is located in St. Helena in California Napa Valley, It was founded in 1890 by John Thomann, who immigrated from Switzerland. In 1947, Mario Trinchero's dilapidated property was acquired and rebuilt. The family also owns the Monteviña winery with the top wine "Terra d'Oro". The Sutter Home vineyards cover almost 2,500 hectares of vineyards. The varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel are cultivated. Varietals (varietal wines) are mainly produced. The winery is a specialist in Zinfandel and both pressed red and white. In 1975 a sweet rose-colored one became for the first time White Zinfandel launched on the market, which became a hit. But wines from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties are also sometimes considered Blush generated.

The “Amador” is the best-known brand among the red Zinfandels. The M. Trinchero label, named in honor of the company's founder Mario Trinchero, was launched in 1995. For this purpose, a “winery in a winery” with special conditions was built. These include small fermentation tanks so that small quantities can be removed individually, new French barriques and an innovative fog system in the barrel storage for better maturation. Under the responsibility of star winemaker Derek Holstein, top wines from Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are produced from the best locations in the Napa Valley. Each layer is vinified individually and only the barrels with the best and finest characteristics and the greatest complexity are then selected.
