When Mario Trinchero started our family winery over 70 years ago, he sealed most of his business deals with a simple handshake. Only the most important moments of his life were bound with a signature: Signing the log book at Ellis Island when he reached New York from Italy. Signing the marriage certificate when he and Mary wed. And, of course, signing the purchase agreement for our family’s first winery in Napa Valley in 1948.
Our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, the only Trinchero Napa Valley bottling to bear Mario’s autograph, represents the most coveted vineyard blocks on three of our estate vineyards: Mario’s Vineyard in St. Helena, Haystack Vineyard in Atlas Peak and Cloud’s Nest Vineyard in Mt. Veeder. Crafted during only those vintages of exceptional caliber, this illustrious wine is blended from a mere eight barrels, hand-selected by winemaker Mario Monticelli for their superior aromatics and incredibly complex layers of flavor.
This is a wine that speaks to the extraordinary terroir of our finest vineyards. It’s a wine that could only be made in Napa Valley—both for its homage to our family heritage and for its legendary style in the glass.
We make only 200 cases of Signature, available exclusively to connoisseurs on our Signature Acquisition List. Our limited-edition, three-bottle set is presented in a classic heirloom box bearing an elegant rendering of Mario Trinchero’s signature.
