Winemaking at Trump Winery
Utilizing both traditional and the most innovative winemaking techniques, Trump Winery prides itself in making quality, terroir driven wines that are unique to the Monticello AVA.
Trump Winery makes blend driven Bordeaux style red wine using Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, and Malbec. Made into unique sub lots, each individual component of the blend was picked pushing the limits of grape maturity to produce red wines with structure and the ability to age. Using the most gentle techniques, our grapes are hand picked, hand sorted, and fed by gravity into our winemaking facility. To develop complexity and finesse after vinification, the red wines then age in French Oak barrels for a period of 12-18 months before blending and bottling.
All of our sparkling wines at Trump Winery are made in the true tradition of Champagne using Méthode Champenoise. This method made famous by Benedictine monks uses natural yeast to create natural carbonation inside each individual bottle to create the finest sparkling wines. Our vineyards of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are handpicked at night and gently pressed cold, producing juice rich in acidity and character. After vinification, the wines are aged in stainless steel and French oak for a period of nine months before being blended and bottled for second fermentation. The resulting sparkling wines are then aged for a period of close to two years to develop complexity and depth before they are ready for sale.

The Trump Grand Hall sits atop the highest point of our 1,300-acre estate with the most beautiful and exclusive views of Trump Winery and Charlottesville, VA. With a breathtaking landscape of rolling hills, vines, and lakes, your guests will be mesmerized by the unparalleled panorama.
