Sheila’s Recommendation

  • I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend the summer Trentadue Happy Hour

  • 5:00-7:00, Thurs. May through August

  • Enjoy live music, a food truck, and wine.

  • Of all the summer concerts I go to, Thursday at Trentadue is one of my TOP FAVS.

  • I LOVE the fact there is complete shade.

  • Do not miss the plum trees around February.

  • The long driveway leading to Trentadue is lined with blooming plum trees.

  • Around February they turn bright pink.

  • Quite spectacular driving up to the winery and seeing all the cheerful pink.

  • Trentadue is a winery that holds the MOST special place in my Sonoma County Heart.

  • Why?

  • Trentadue was the spot where my boyfriend asked me to be his girlfriend.

  • Recently, friends of ours got engaged here.

  • Trentadue hosts my favorite event of the year ‘Wine Country To The Rescue’. @wc2resq Always on the 3rd Sat of July. A dinner dance and auction for Northern Sonoma County firefighters. Especially after this October…these firefighters need our support. Tickets sell out fast, so please get yours. Trentadue has my top favorite Summer ‘porch pounder’ Sauv Blanc.

  • I LOVE walking through Trentadue’s long canopy of grape vines leading up to the property. In August the canopy is dripping with luscious grapes hanging above you.

  • Trentadue is one of my magical spots. A spot dear to my heart.
