Organic, Biodynamic, and Sustainable Farming Practices

Many California vineyards are currently transitioning to organic farming methods to attain USDA Organic certifications. We also take action to reduce our impact on the environment with sustainable practices like owl boxes, composting, and tracking and encouraging biodiversity.

Eco-Minded Packaging

We are working toward a lighter footprint and a lower carbon future with environmentally conscious packaging like Tetra Pak® used by Bandit wines and a selection of Sutter Home wines.

Land Conservation and Protection

In 2010, our founders Bob and Evalyn Trinchero donated nearly 3,400 acres of land to the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District and another 240 acres to the Lake Berryessa Resort Improvement District.


More than 4,700 acres of our vineyards and five of our California wineries are certified sustainable through third-party programs.
