About Michael

You might say this wine is thirty years in the making—
I’ve been anticipating its release since I first
stepped foot here in the Napa Valley.

Winemaker Michael Trujillo


rujillo Cabernet Sauvignon is my latest endeavor and a personal labor of love. Inspiration for this wine traces back to 1982, when I first arrived in Napa Valley from my family’s farm in Colorado. I grew up helping my father year-round in the fields, and learned early on about how soil, climate, pests and critters affect living, growing plants.

After three decades of winemaking experience in all aspects of the business—from vineyard cultivation and irrigation digging, to cooperage selection and blending—I’m proud to now offer my own namesake Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is a realization of my lifelong passion for crafting red wine, an expression of all that I’ve learned and deeply value about winemaking in the Napa Valley.

Napa Valley Vinyards

Growing and harvesting grapes across diverse terroirs, from lush valley floor to hillside slopes, contributes the exceptional balance and structure I look for in a wine. Maybe my farming roots are why the vineyards feel like home and the growers, extended family. Fruit for my label comes from some of Napa’s finest, including Herb Lamb Vineyards in St. Helena, Gary Morisoli in Rutherford, Healy Vineyards in St. Helena, and Henry Brothers Ranch on Howell Mountain.
