About Lorenzo Trefethen
Lorenzo Trefethen believes in the power of wine to bring people together. Lorenzo was always around wine growing up, constantly meeting interesting new people. So, it was no surprise when, as an undergraduate at Stanford University, he took command of the French Department’s wine-tasting course, transforming it from just another college excuse to drink into a more formal, educational experience that his peers immediately embraced. It was this early experience of uniting people around wine that inspired Lorenzo to return to Napa and the family business.
Now, among the family, Lorenzo travels most often to support the business, including to their export markets. He also brought some of the innovative Silicon Valley mindset back from college, modernizing the winery’s software and hardware systems and leading a redesign of the brand’s website (with another update on the way). It’s Lorenzo’s constant creative thinking and strong aesthetic viewpoint that truly define him. Together with his sister, Hailey, Lorenzo represents the next generation of the Trefethen family, steadfast in their passion to uphold a legacy of world-class, estate-grown wines.
