The Terroir, the Vine & the Spirit
Pursuing craftsmanship and quality in these three flavors is the heart of our mission at Tres Sabores. A family-owned, woman-led winery, we believe that every stage of the winemaking process is an opportunity for artistry, from the earth to the vine to the glass.
Our estate on Napa Valley's Rutherford Bench is the backdrop of every stage of our winemaking process. As a California Certified Organic Farm (CCOF), we cultivate grapevines, heritage olives, Meyer lemons, pomegranates and more in our heirloom garden. Our ranch is also home to an ecosystem including bluebirds, red tail hawks, a herd of sheep, a flock of Guinea fowls, and more. We utilize our ranch's ambient yeasts in our fermentation process, making each bottle a genuine expression of our St. Helena home.
In our estate vineyard, we cultivate Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah varietals. Planted in 1972, these gnarled woody vines produce rich, complex flavors in each grape. We also select the highest-quality grapes from vineyards in Sonoma and Oregon's Willamette Valley to complement and diversify our selection of wines.
Essential to the enjoyment of our wines is the company with whom you drink around the table.
