One Bottle One Tree® Funds the Planting of a Tree for Every Bottle of Trinity Oaks Wine Sold
St. Helena CA April 15, 2014 — In just six years, Trinity Oaks Wines helped plant more than 10 million trees. The One Bottle One Tree® program funds the planting of a beneficial tree for every bottle of Trinity Oaks wine sold in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future.
The mission of the One Bottle One Tree® program is to help restore tree cover and plant trees in areas most in need of reforestation — primarily in tropical locations that have the most beneficial impact on the environment — by using agroforestry techniques tailored to the needs of the community.
On October 24, 2013, Trinity Oaks held a ceremonial tree planting to celebrate the milestone of 10 million trees at Trinchero Family Estates’ Main Street, St. Helena property in Napa Valley, CA. The commemorative 10 millionth tree was planted by Roger Trinchero, vice chairman and CEO of Trinchero Family Estates; Bob Torres, senior vice president of operations of Trinchero Family Estates; and John Leary, executive director of Trees for the Future.
“Trinchero Family Estates has been in the Napa Valley community since 1948 and takes environmental responsibility very seriously,” noted Bob Torres. “Through programs like One Bottle One Tree®, we can extend that commitment globally.”
Trinity Oaks’ bottle labels and marketing materials are made from 100% post-consumer-recycled paper, and the capsule on every bottle is made from EarthFirst® PLA (Polylactic Acid) film, which uses less energy and is made in a greenhouse neutral facility utilizing solar, wind, and other energy offsets. The material used in the capsule is certified compostable, and the aluminum top disk on the capsule is recyclable. Trinity Oaks packaging also features Nomacorc corks, which are recyclable and produce a smaller carbon footprint compared to regular wine corks. The bottles are made using special lightweight glass and packed in non-bleached Kraft shippers, which are made from 40% post-consumer-recycled paper.
The Trinity Oaks portfolio of wines includes five varietals: Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Trinity Oaks exclusively uses premium grapes sourced from California’s best growing regions, including Napa and Monterey counties. Trinity Oaks wines are available at restaurants, grocery and wine stores nationwide and retail for $7.99. For more information on Trinity Oaks, visitwww.TrinityOaks.com.
