Merlot flourishes in relatively cool growing regions with moist soils, making it an ideal match for certain parts of the Trefethen estate vineyard, located in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley.
"At Trefethen, everything is connected. I mean this in both an ecological and a social sense. The land we farm is part of a larger ecosystem that we affect. And the way we approach our work, the mindset we have, ripples out to affect how we treat our employees, receive visitors, and carry ourselves in our community." - Lorenzo Trefethen
Trefethen has been producing award-winning, estate grown wines for over fifty years. Their legacy includes producing "The World's Best Chardonnay" back in 1979 and more recently their Cabernet Sauvignon being named "Best in Show" at the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards.
The dedication of the Trefethen family is manifest in every aspect of their operation, from the soil to the table, including sustainable farming, thoughtful winemaking, and gracious hospitality.
