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, the run-down property was acquired and rebuilt by Mario Trinchero. The family also owns the winery Monteviña with the top wine "Terra d'Oro". The Sutter Home vineyards cover nearly 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. Mainly varietals (varietal wines) are produced. The winery is a specialist for Zinfandel and both red and white gekeltert. In 1975, for the first time a sweet rose-colored White zinfandel brought to the market, which has become a hit. But wines from the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are partly as Blush generated.

Among the red Zinfandels, the "Amador" is the best-known brand. Since the year 1995 there is the label M. Trinchero named in honor of the company founder Mario Trinchero . For this, as it were, a "winery in the winery" was built with special conditions. These include small fermentation tanks to remove small quantities individually, new French oak barrels and an innovative mist system in the barrel storage for better maturation. Under the responsibility of star winemaker Derek Holstein, top-quality wines from Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are produced from the best locations in the Napa Valley. Each layer is individually vinified and only the barrels with the best and finest characteristics and the greatest complexity then selected.
