Trinitas proprietors, Tim and Steph Busch have always had a passion for wine and the wine country, and in 2002 they realized their dream of starting a winery. Trinitas Cellars is a small winery based in Napa Valley that still today is owned and operated by the Busch family, including their children Garrett and Kenzie.
Trinitas celebrates the connection among sun, soil, and humanity by working closely with its grower society throughout Northern California. They make a point to source a broad range of varietals from the regions where climate and soil conditions are most favorable for each specific varietal. Small quantities of these exceptional grapes are then handcrafted into an approachable California-style wine to be enjoyed as an aperitif or with food. Some of the wines come from historical vineyards in Northern California with a number of vineyards over a century old.
Since 2007 Winemaking was led by Kevin Mills who grew up in Oklahoma, where his family grew have grown vines since 1977. After years of hard work and many “interesting” wines they decided to go to school. Kevin enrolled in Grayson County College’s Viticulture and Enology program at Denison, Texas and together started Canadian River Winery. Kevin met Tony Peju of Peju Province Winery and mentored under then Peju Winemaker Sean Foster for four and a half years. His emphasis is to mainstream Trinitas with top tier Bordeaux and Burgundy varietals. Kevin has introduced Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet programs to the Trinitas Portfolio.
Winemaker Kale Anderson took over the winemaking at Trinitas Cellars in 2020.
