The Cow girl & The Pilot, Merlot , Trefethen Family Vineyards 2017

Trefethen Estate


We're very lucky to have this wine, exclusive to us in the UK. A tribute to Janet and John Trefethen, this outstanding Merlot / Cabernet Franc blend is just stunning.

The story behind thwe wine is as follows...

In 1973, in a quiet agricultural valley north of San Francisco, a young Navy veteran and a former California rodeo queen fell in love over a bottle of wine. Their love blossomed and while she kept riding and he kept flying, together they built a winery and a family, helping to shape the Napa Valley and the American fine wine industry along the way. Crafted from the finest lots of Merlot from our estate vineyards, this wine is our tribute to them, Napa pioneers: Janet and John Trefethen.
