Silver Trident Winery was founded in 2009 by Bob Binder and Walter Jost. Located in the heart of the Napa Valley, we are a boutique family winery that produces only 3,500 cases each year. We focus mainly on single vatietal wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc as well as a proprietary Napa Valley Red Blend.
Silver Trident's inaugural vintage was our 2009 'Twenty Seven Fathoms' Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2010, our renowned 'Benevolent Dictator' Pinot Noir joined the portfolio. We opened the doors to our celenrated Yountville Tasing Home in March of 2015 and soon began introducing Silver Trident to wine enthusiasts from all over the world. Prior to March of 2015 one might have been lucky enough to find a small amount of Silver Trident Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir while sailing the seas aboard an Oceania luxury cruise ship.
And our name? It was inspired by Bob's years at sea in the Cruise Ship Industry with Oceania Cruises. The trident is a nod to Neptune, who used his three-pronged spear to create earthquakes, tidal waves and oceans. In our own small way, we enjoy shaking things up a bit as we chart our path into the future. The color Silver is a reference ot the way the sea looks on a calm, moonlight night: Placid, shimmering, inviting and infinitely deep. Just like a great glass of wine.
