A focus on crafting delicious food-friendly wines.
When Victor and Cindy Trentadue launched VC Cellars, they let their 30+ years of vineyard management experitse guide their decision to focus on three varietal standouts: Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Victor and Cindy limited their planting to just 12 acres on a gently sloping, southwest facing hillside in upper Dry Creek Valley.
The results have been more than mouthwatering the first releases from 2005 and 2006 vintages brought home nearly a dozen awards from top wine competitions.
Our roots in Dry Creek Valley span generations.
Located in the northwestern region of Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley has a rich history of ranching and fruit farming going back to the 1850s and has been the place called "home" for our family for several generations. In 1959, Victor's parent, Evelyn and Leo Trentadue, decided to flee the developers encroaching on their apricot and cherry orchards in Sunnyvale, the area known today around the world as Silicon Valley. Finding a vibrant Italian farming community in Sonoma County, the Trentadues settled their family here and were among the very first to plant new grapevines in Sonoma County after the days of Prohibition. Dry Creek Valley was also great sheep farming territory and Victor took part in many sheerings down in the old barn the chalk marks keeping count are still in evidence on the barn walls!
Victor and Cindy operate Four Seasons Vineyard Managment, which oversees 422 acres of grapevines throughout Sonoma County.
VC Cellars is joined on the shelf by their sister wine POUND HOUND, whose most dedicated ambassador is Abbey, the family's Jack Russell Terrier. Pound Hound literally puts together the "pick of the litter" of each harvest, offering some of the most delicious industry "strays" at workday prices.
