Trinity Oaks

At Trinchero Family Estates, ‘going green’ is more than just a catchphrase —it’s a way of life.

It’s just that simple…Trinity Oaks will plant one tree for each bottle sold. There’s no limit to the number of trees Trinity Oaks will plant, so buy a bottle of Trinity Oaks today and take one small step toward a greener tomorrow.

The Trinity Oaks winemaking team pays close attention to developing California’s top vineyards with a focus on coastal climates proven to produce superior, expressive fruit. Each year, the team select the finest fruit from these growing regions to carefully craft their portfolio of wines. The final achievement is a fruit-forward, food-friendly style consumers have come to expect and appreciate.

While many businesses are starting to jump on the green bandwagon, they’ve been committed to environmentally responsible practices for decades. In recognition of their efforts, Trinity Oaks received the Green Business Award from Napa County, and for eight consecutive years, the WRAP (Waste Reduction Awards Program) from California’s Integrated Waste Management Board — the only Northern California winery to be singled out for the honor — as well as the WRAP of the year award in 2005.

With over 7,000 acres of vineyards, Trinity Oaks feels a responsibility to the land and have sought to set a standard in environmental stewardship. That’s why they insist on using sustainable farming practices in all of their vineyards, and incorporate organic and/or biodynamic practices whenever they can. They also participate in the Napa Valley Green Farming and Fish-Friendly Farming certification programs.

Rather than use chemicals in the vineyards, Trinity Oaks 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, they use botanical oils and use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to naturally control vineyard pest problems and minimize the use of agricultural pesticides. At their winery’s production facilities, they have managed to decrease water consumption. Plus, all of the water used in production is treated in-house and used to irrigate the vineyards and landscaping.

Finally, recycling is a comprehensive, company-wide effort at Trinchero Family Estates. If it can be recycled, they do it. In fact, their recycling program has been so successful, they’ve been able to create an Employee in Need fund with the proceeds.
