Trinity Ridge Vineyard sits high above Sonoma Valley; along the southwestern slope of the Mayacamas Mountain Range overlooking the winery. This spectacular 9 acre vineyard, situated at the height of elevation in the Moon Mountain District, reflects our continuing commitment to produce spectacular wines that express the best of our exceptional vineyard sites. Trinity Ridge is a wild and untamed terroir with 107 different volcanic soils littered with jagged rocks which together impart great complexity, minerality, depth of character and color to the grapes grown here. The southwestern exposure and high elevation of this site, high above the fog line, create consistent, slightly warmer temperate ranges, perfect for producing wines of great intensity and finesse.
Trinity Ridge Vineyard was planted by and is farmed organically under the watchful eye of vineyard manager Phil Coturri. This vineyard, consisting of two unique sites with varying elevation and exposure, is planted to Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
