Trey brings with him a wealth of knowledge, spending the last eight years at Bien Nacido Vineyards in Santa Maria, as Winemaker & General Manager. A seasoned veteran of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Trey has also held winemaking roles with Littorai Wines in Sebastopol, as well as in Edna and Napa Valleys.

John Terlato said, “Sanford & Benedict is an iconic vineyard with incredible potential. The next chapter for Sanford is to fully unlock this potential. What impressed us most about Trey was his understanding that the vineyard and its farming is the starting point and the cornerstone of our wine quality. In addition, his philosophy of focusing on farming with minimal intervention is very much aligned with our views.”
Trey's work will help us advance this positive momentum and our vision for the future - which is to craft wines that are clear and true representations of this unique and extraordinary place.
