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 600 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 2005, 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, Primitivo and Zinfandel.
Winery operations are a family affair, Mark Trione is President, Vic is Vice President, Mark’s daughter Denise is the Director of Sales and Marketing, and her husband, Kris Hicks, is Vineyard Operations Manager. Vic’s son, Henry, has joined the team as a sales representative for Marin and Sacramento. 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. The storied building, carefully erected to be earthquake-proof, features the area’s first concrete floor and magnificent Douglas fir beams. It now serves as the winery’s venue for events. Trione treasures its local history and was able to retain the original bond number, 350, that was given to its predecessor, Nervo Winery. The authentic building is an intriguing stop for wine tourists eager for a taste of Sonoma County history and the wines that have earned the Trione name. Now an event center, it is available for private parties and events. Visitors can enjoy bocce, picnics, food and wine events, and impeccable hospitality along with their wines. Guests often join the Estate Guild wine club, so they can return and bring their families for Trione’s ultimate VIP experience.
