The Trione family has farmed in Sonoma County for three generations. In 2005 they established Trione Winery, designed specifically for crafting small lots of wine from their estate grapes grown in the Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations. Trione Winery sits beside a landmark 1908 stone winery. Now an event center, the iconic Old Stone Building is available for private parties and weddings.
Trione Family Vineyards and Winery
Three generations, four decades, five ranches — our family is deeply rooted in the Sonoma County wine industry. Dedicated farmers for forty years, brothers Mark and Vic Trione own and cultivate close to 700 vineyard acres in three prime Sonoma County appellations: Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Sonoma Coast.
During 2005 a new chapter took root: Trione Vineyards and Winery. Our family built a winery on our Home Ranch in Alexander Valley and appointed Scot Covington winemaker. Scot made Trione 2006 and 2007 vintages in a custom crush facility; the winery construction completed in time to receive the 2008 harvest.
Living a winemaker’s dream, Scot selects just three percent of the Trione estate grapes and crafts small lots of wine in his customized “studio”. Scot’s goal: make wines that express the highest level of quality across all varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel.
Our winery operations are a family affair. Mark Trione is President, Vic is Vice President, Mark’s daughter Denise oversees sales and marketing, and her husband, Kris Hicks, is Vineyard Operations Manager. We are proud of our family history (link to Timeline) and passionate about Sonoma County’s hospitality, food and wine.
Trione winery is located next to a 1908 landmark stone building at the Home Ranch in Alexander Valley. Respecting history and tradition, our family restored the Old Stone Building, preserving the history and authentic character. Now an event center, it is available for private parties.
River Road Ranch is a jewel in the Russian River Valley Appellation. It is 115 acres total in the rolling hills of the valley at a location where the river makes a westerly turn towards the Pacific Ocean. The soils are alluvial deposits of the Russian River described as sandy clay loam over sandy loam subsoil's. They are well-drained soils that are perfect for growing world class Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Syrah.
Cloverdale Ranch is situated along the western flank of the Mayacamas Mountains that run to the eastern bank of the Russian River. It is located in the upper end of the Alexander Valley Appellation, and is 180 acres in size. Our grapes for Trione Cabernet Sauvignon come from one block planted in 2001 that we call Block 21. It is a single selection of the Bordeaux clone 339. The soils at this site are described as clay loam over sand clay loam subsoil's, with a high percentage of rounded gravel from alluvial sediments. The combination of soil and exposure are perfect for growing concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon with intense flavor and color.
