For over a decade, Joel Gott Wines has been building grower relationships, allowing the winemaking team to source high-quality grapes to produce delicious, balanced wines that offer fantastic value.
Joel Gott Wines was established in 1996 with the production of Amador County Zinfandel. Joel had purchased five tons of fruit from boyhood neighbor Tom Dillian and made the wine with then-girlfriend Sarah, a winemaker in Napa Valley. The subsequent 1997 vintage of Dillian Ranch Zinfandel marked not only Sarah and Joel's marriage, but also the first significant reviews of the wine in respected publications.
In 1947, brothers John and Mario Trinchero traveled to St. Helena, California, near the renowned Napa Valley growing region, and purchased Sutter Home Winery. Mario’s son, Bob, joined the company, and in 1975 he developed the revolutionary White Zinfandel varietal. Trinchero Family Estates represents over 27 brands in the United States and Australia, including Sutter Home, Little Boomey, and Trinchero Napa Valley.
