California in pictures: Napa and Lodi

Later that day, having made a pitstop at Napa’s legendary Stagecoach vineyard – the largest continuous vineyard in the world, which was snapped up by Gallo in 2017 – we headed to Trinchero in the Napa Valley for a grand tour that began with appetite-whetting Dirty Martinis.

Family owned since 1948, Trinchero Family Estates boasts over 50 wine and spirits brands and has a global presence in nearly 50 countries. The wine giant was founded by Italian Americans John and Mario Trinchero, who are best known for the soaring success of Sutter Home White Zinfandel, which was originally created by accident when a Zin ferment got stuck, leaving 2% residual sugar in the wine and a pale pink hue.
