We are thrilled to share our accolades from the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards – the world’s largest and most prestigious wine competition.
In a field of over 16,000 wines, both the Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay finished in the top 1% of wines tasted. Our 2018 Chardonnay finished with a Platinum Medal. The tasting’s top honor, “Best in Show” was awarded to just the best 50 wines, including our own Cabernet Sauvignon!

At the heart of Trefethen’s winemaking efforts are their Signature wines: Dry Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dragon’s Tooth. These wines can be enjoyed at the winery, as well as discovered in select wine shops and fine restaurants around the world.
The Legacy Collection honors the three generations of Trefethens who continue to inspire the estate. Each wine has a unique story, specific intention, and expressive personality. Together, these distinct wines reflect the very best of Trefethen Family Vineyards.
Many of the vines producing the grapes for this wine are trained on a quadrilateral cordon trellis, commonly known as “Double T.” The vine is pruned and trained so that its branches, or cordons, form four arms resembling two Ts, hence the name. Double T also refers to the two Trefethens, owners John and Janet, who created the Tempting Taste of these wines, which you may find yourself Tasting Twice.
