Most vintners can’t say they’ve made wine for one pope, let alone two.
Napa, California-based Trinitas Cellars can.
The faith-based winemakers bottle special blends for the Holy Father.
The family-owned winery created a 2006 Lodi “ratZINger” Zinfandel for Pope Benedict XVI, formerly known as Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, and most recently, a “Cabernet FRANCis” from Knights Valley grapes for Pope Francis.
The winery also produces a white wine called Psalms and a Rosé called Rose’ary.
We are excited to invite you to join the Napa Institute for our first Virtual Conference, “Finding Hope in the New America.” While we won’t be able to share conversation or a bottle of wine with you this year in person, we invite you to fill your glasses at home and toast the hope we have in the Napa Institute Family and in our Faith. Join speakers such as Cardinal George Pell, Dr. Scott Hahn, Curtis Martin, and many more as they address issues ranging from socialism to how to answer our call to evangelization in a hostile world. In these unprecedented times in our nation, we must view all the critical issues through a Catholic lens, with great hope in Christ.
