The Tasting Room
Erin Martin, the renowned designer of the tasting room garnered the 2017 Wine Country Award from California Home + Design magazine. Her sensibility captured the essence of the family’s long history from the Old World to the Napa Valley.
Once inside, you can bask in the rich atmospheric glow that comes from the antique fireplace, brass and bronze finishes as well as the steel trusses, and floor-to-ceiling window design. Open, warm and inviting, Erin honors the Trinchero’s family legacy with a display inside a steel case of carefully curated artifacts. The leather furnishings and French oak floors bring a richness to each of the tasting rooms. The soft-hue lighting evokes a special time of the past, rich in history.
