In a world full of complexities, it is nice to be able to come home, kick off the shoes, sit down and relax
with an enjoyable bottle of wine. Bread & Butter Wines believes the simple things in life should be good, honest and delicious. A motto by which I can live. One of my favorite things to do, especially this time of year, is to end the day with a nice glass of wine on the patio, while enjoying the view with some quiet
time. Simplicity at its best.
Bread & Butter Wines offers a variety of classic, everyday wines that you can enjoy any day of the week. Winemaker, Linda Trotta believes that “A good wine is a wine you like.” I could not agree more, every palate is unique and there is a wine out there for everyone.

recently completed a modern tasting room that is warm and inviting, the perfect setting to relax with a

wines (which I look forward to tasting someday soon!) are only available through the tasting room, wine
club or online shop.
Speaking of their wine club…take the overthinking out of it. As a club member, you will receive four
shipments per year, made up entirely of their Napa Valley limited-release wines. And if that does not get
your attention, you should know each shipment is fully customizable, ensuring you are happy with your
selection and there are no complications in the process.
