For years, Tim Busch dreamed of owning a winery in Napa Valley and in 2002, his dream became a reality when Trinitas Cellars was born. Trinitas, the Latin word for Trinity, celebrates the connection between sun, soil and humanity; the trinity of elements necessary for the production of fine wine.
Initially, production for this family-owned winery included only a few varieties and about 5000 cases, but with the help of winemaker Kevin Mills, and Tim’s son, Garrett Busch, Trinitas has quickly grown to over 30,000 cases and over 17 varieties. Trinitas is most well-known for its Carneros Chardonnay, nicknamed the “Butterscotch Bomb”, but also delivers other great wines, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Meritage, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and many others. Looking to push the envelope, Trinitas also released an Amarone wine, in February 2013, from the Valpolicella region of Italy, which is now being made by friends in Italy and imported under the Trinitas label. Currently, Trinitas offers various winetasting experiences at its tasting room, which opened in 2007 and is located 40 feet below ground, in the Estate Cave behind the Meritage Resort & Spa.
Whether you are looking for a unique “Wine 101” course on how to taste wine, a palatable chocolate pairing, a vineyard tour or just an enjoyable glass of wine, the Trinitas Cellars Tasting Room has it all… and there is even more to come! Not only is Trinitas Cellars part of the founding group of wineries for the up and coming Crusher Wine District, but at the end of January, Trinitas Cellars will also take over the offices and private tasting salon that is currently occupied by our friends and neighbors, Patz & Hall. In this new space, Trinitas will offer a new variety of private tastings, wine pairings and Napa experiences; be sure to stop by when it opens.
