TRIUM

Description

TRIUM is a Latin term meaning “of the three,” an expression of the early collaboration of three vineyard owners to produce classically-styled, vineyard-focused wine. That label, with its reproduction of a sixteenth-century woodcut depicting a vineyard worker, also means something very specific to the brand. For Laura, Kurt and Dustin Lotspeich, founders and current owners of TRIUM, it speaks to the fact that hard work in the vineyard pays off in the glass. The Lotspeichs have produced premium Pinot Gris, Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Grenache and Zinfandel from their 17-acre Pheasant Vineyard since 1990. Each year since 2003, they have selected part of their harvest for TRIUM, a boutique label with no more than one thousand cases per year. TRIUM’s flagship wine is Gowers’ Cuvée, a proprietary Bordeaux blend that has regularly garnered awards since its first bottling won the platinum medal and best of show at the 2005 Greatest of the Grape competition. It’s hardly surprising that Laura Lotspeich is equally at home driving a tractor to haul harvest bins or describing the palate notes of a vintage to visitors in the estate tasting room, a pleasant nook perched at the top of the hill overlooking the vines.
