About
Trinitas Cellars was born in 2003 from the guiding belief of the Busch Family that with family, faith, and perseverance, anything is possible. These values have illuminated their path to, and successes within, world-class resort hospitality. An industry where success is measured by the happiness and memories you inspire in others. With Trinitas Cellars, the second generation of the family hopes to inspire the same in wine enthusiasts. Our goal is to craft wine that’s so compellingly delicious, that the joy it brings creates a window in time where worries are melted away, virtues are celebrated, and life is savored. Tasting Room will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas.

    Reds to remember
    Located across the Meritage resort in a new retail/residential development the tasting room has a nice terrace. We were there at 5pm and it was great sipping wine as the sun slowly set. I liked the experience and the wines were good. Years ago the tasting room was in a cave adjacent to Meritage but the new one is welcoming. If you purchase bottles of wine your tasting fee is waived. Nice relaxing place at days end.

    Joyful time
    My husband and I had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend there. The Wine Tasting Manager Scott is incredibly amazing and friendly. Scott has shared many interesting wine and food pairing advice with us. We have absolutely enjoyed the wine tasting experience there!

    Wonderful Visit!
    Decided to stop by since we were staying at the Meritage resort. When we walked in we were greeted by the lovely Sarah. She spent quite a while explaining the different wines, quite informative! We found several wines that we liked. Decided to join the wine club after she explained the many benefits. We were so happy we dropped in! Thank you Sarah! See you next year!

Racist manager refused to seat me and my family even thought I am a wine club member AND I had a reservation!!!

My family drove 5 hours from SoCal to Napa and had just checked in across the street. We decided on a whim to do a tasting at Trinitas, as a wine member, I figured they would be nice enough to seat me if there were space. I walked in, saw that they were only about 2/3 full with plenty of empty seats, and asked if we could do a tasting. They informed me those empty seats were for guests with reservations, and I was turned away.

I went outside, looked online, saw there were available reservations, made the reservation, came back in, and was told immediately they had already told me they would not serve me, please leave. I explained to the hostess that I had just made a reservation (for the exact current time of 4:30 pm). Then the manage Scott came out, so I tried to explain again that I have a reservation now. But before I could even finish saying that he whistled at me! Whistled! In that same manner you’ve seen in western movies when some racist hill-billy whistles to a black man, implying “Now shut up and you listen, boy!” And suddenly I looked around, and some other guests and my own kids were staring at us, and I felt completely embarrassed by the scene. I’ve only felt this way a few times in my life as an Asian American, but this time was the first time I’ve experience such blatant racist gesture as a full grown adult with a family in tow, with my kids watching. He then repeated in a louder voice, just like a cop asserting his dominance “I don’t care. I already told you I’m not taking you, so I’m not taking you.” My wife (caucasian) who could not believe what she just saw, then stepped in and said “Did you just whistle at my husband???!” I was speechless at this point. This level of humiliation is something completely new to me. Scott ignored my wife's question, and repeated himself even louder. Needless to say, I took my family and walked out.

I have since requested to terminate my wine membership from Trinitas. I would recommend anyone who does not wish to be treated as a 2nd class human being by Scott and his staff to avoid Trinitas like it was a southern plantation from a century ago.

We went to the tasting, which was really good. However, we found out the next day after the next tasting that someone in our party was allergic to the tannins in red wine and we needed to change our order. We tried calling and emailing them for days with zero response. They did finally respond after the fourth email and three calls, after they shipped the wine four days later. We cancelled the order all together due to the lack of consideration and cooperation. Then they tried to blame us for not contacting them sooner! I literally told them that I had the emails send starting the night of the tasting! All I wanted to do was change it solely to the Chardonnay. I would never do business with a company that doesn’t follow-up with emails and phone calls in a timely manner, causing an inconvenience for the customer without any regard for their causation due to a lack of business acumen.

This spot is a special treat to have right at the hotel. The charcuterie ingredients were of high quality and the wine assortment impressive. Pam was fantastic. Super chill spot

We were staying at the resort and went to see the new tasting room for Trinitas Cellars. Its a classy tasting room that is part of the Village group of tasting rooms, which are on the resort property. As someone staying at Vino Bello (part of Meritage Resort), we received a complementary bottle of wine.

It has decent wine but the ambience of the cave was the glowing feature. They have created a nice tasting room and experience but why replace the cave? That is a character that few wineries share. It distinguished Trinitas making it unique and special. I miss it and wonder why they no longer use it, even for the pick-up parties....

We have been members of Trinitas for some time now and love this winery and their festivities. Yesterday (Sun. 8/26/2018) we were invited to the open-air concert with "Royal Jelly Jive" and an opportunity to hang out in the Busch Family Suite. Everything was absolutely fantastic (as always) ... the new tasting room is very nice, although we still loved the cave.

We highly recommend Trinitas Cellars
