In 1948 Mario Trinchero and his family made their way west to build a better life. They purchased an abandoned Prohibition-era winery in St. Helena, refurbished it, and scraped by as a mom-and-pop operation. Seven decades later, Trinchero Family Estates is one of the largest family-owned wine companies in the United States. From creating the world’s first White Zinfandel, to overseeing a portfolio of over 50 global wine and spirits brands, to committing itself to sustainable farming and innovative philanthropy —Trinchero has always been a leader and pioneer.
The family’s passion for the land, the community, and for world-class wine are the spirit of tonight’s dinner, hosted by Trinchero’s Principal and Vice Chairman Robert “Bob” Torres and his wife Maria. Guests will be treated to a multicourse dinner in the beautiful fountain courtyard of their 22-acre estate, paired with Trinchero Napa Valley’s estate-grown, small lot wines.
