At a Glance


taste + style

“We have a style in mind for our Treo blend, and this year Petite Sirah made up the backbone of the blend joined the mix of Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot and a hint of Malbec resulting in a wine that is rich and full of flavor. The red fruits are ripe and bold, but not overly so. Tannins are purposefully softer and easy drinking – we craft this blend to ensure the wine is accessible when you decide to open the bottle. Maybe that’s why it’s become so popular. Enjoy!” – Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking

The blend is ripe and bold, but not overly so. Meant for easy drinking pleasure right now, the tannins are purposefully softer for easy drinking.



Food + Wine Pairing

Grilled flank steak, salmon, mushrooms or a hamburger with blue cheese are my favorite pairings in the summer. Cured meats and aged cheeses like a gouda or dry jack make a tasty meat and cheese platter.
