Connection fuels us — it forms our foundation and our purpose. We exist because of the amazing people that boundlessly share their talent, curiosity, and inspiration so that we can create outstanding wines that turn strangers into friends and make community feel like family.
– Jaime Araujo, Founder/Vintner
Trois Noix was born out of a lifelong love of wine – not only what ends up in the bottle, but also how it got there, what happens when it fills your glass, and how it can bring a table to life and people together. The magic of wine – from making it to sharing it – is as a conduit to connection.
The Trois Noix wines are made in collaboration with amazingly talented friends who also happen to be fabulous winemakers and grapegrowers. Together we sleuth out compelling wines and grapes that might otherwise go neglected. These components then begin their own collaboration as we assemble the blends for the final wines. While we love to push the boundaries of convention – our palates still have a classical bent. Our mantra is serious wines that are enjoyable and pleasurable right now: elegant, polished, and approachable but with structure to last.
Clubs are so handy, and a nice way for us to get to know you wonderful people a little better! Check it out and find the one that suits you best.
My family has been making world-class wines in Napa Valley for over 25 years, first at Araujo Estate, and now at Accendo Cellars. However, upon returning to Napa Valley to become a vintner, I knew that I wanted to create a wine that would reflect my personality, and what I loved most about wine: people and community.
The name “Trois Noix,” which means “Three Nuts,” is an homage to the next generation of Araujos, my love of France, and the memories I made there as a young woman in the world of wine.
But more than that, “Trois Noix” is about community and collaboration, curiosity and innovation, and using wine as a vector for change.
The other amazing people who help to make Trois Noix live and sing include Stefan Copiz, the intensely talented designer and artist who created the graphic identity of the bottles and labels, and Michael Sommer, the sales and industry veteran responsible for the growth and expansion of Trois Noix. The amazing staff at Wheeler Farms are also there to share the wines with our visitors and are all incredible ambassadors for Trois Noix. Just like children, wine takes a village!
Tastings for Trois Noix wines are by appointment only at Wheeler Farms in Saint Helena. Each tasting is $65 per person and features five wines from a selection of limited production bottlings. After arriving at our historic property, you’ll enjoy a stroll through the estate gardens, followed by a tour and a bird’s eye view of our state-of-the-art winemaking facility.
You will then be seated on our outdoor patio overlooking the beautiful gardens and vineyards at Wheeler Farms. Your private tasting will be paired with a small charcuterie board featuring a selection of local meats and cheeses, and seasonal fruits and vegetables from our estate gardens.
Our spacious patio is the perfect place to enjoy a safe and socially distant wine tasting while overlooking the beautiful estate at Wheeler Farms.
