Michael Crain Properties of Sonoma Broker Purchase of Petroni Family Trinity Ranch Vineyard for Theorem Winery


(SONOMA, CA; April 4, 2018) – Michael Crain Properties, Vineyard And Estate Brokers, have negotiated the purchase of the 34-acre Trinity Ranch vineyard in the Sonoma Valley/Moon Mountain Appellations. The Buyer was Theorem Vineyards Winery of Napa. Michael Crain Properties represented both buyer and seller in the transaction.

Located in the sought-after Moon Mountain Appellation in the Mayacamas Mountains, the Trinity Ranch property straddles the county line between Napa and Sonoma where Sonoma County’s Trinity Road meets Napa’s Oakville Grade. Situated at 1,800’ elevation and above the fog line, the property benefits from high sunshine hours and warmer daytime temperatures allowing for full flavor and tannin development. The Petroni vineyard designated “Trinity Ranch 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon” was awarded 94+ points from Robert Parker.

Kisha Itkin, President and Owner of Theorem Vineyards, added “Theorem is known for its estate grown Cabernets. Theorem believes in producing excellent wines that reflect the site from where they originate. The winery is excited to showcase the exceptional quality and uniqueness of this Moon Mountain vineyard. Theorem plans to produce an ultra-premium cabernet from this site and add the wine to its collection of estate grown and produced Cabernets.“

The vineyard was previously owned by the late Lorenzo Petroni and his wife Maria Elena, who purchased it in 1992 and developed to vineyards in the following years. They founded Petroni Vineyards Winery in Sonoma during the same period. Mr. Petroni was also the well-known restaurateur and owner of renowned North Beach Restaurant in San Francisco.
