The history of Sutter Home Winery dates back to the late 1800s, when a Swiss-German immigrant established a small winery and distillery in Napa Valley. After purchasing the company in 1948, the Trinchero Family has grown it to the current level, thanks in particular to the creation of White Zinfandel in the early 1970s and introduction of high-quality, affordably priced wines during the ‘80s and ‘90s.
In 2012 the brand added two new wines to its range: Pink Pinot Grigio and Red Moscato. 2013 has so far seen the brand unveil updated packaging with a simplified logo, brighter colours and modernising removal of the Sutter Home Victorian house from its label. On the back label, a new flavour profile bar offers stylistic information, with additional advice on food matches.
