Big Personality. Small Production. Endless Passion.

Handcrafted small production wines, lovingly created in the heart of the Napa Valley.



In 2009, after many happy years spent working in the world of premium travel and hospitality, Bob Binder and Walter Jost settled in the heart of the Napa Valley and founded Silver Trident Winery.

They started small, and stayed that way by choice. Silver Trident is a boutique family winery, producing just 3,500 cases a year. They focus mainly on single-varietal wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc as well as a proprietary Napa Valley Red Blend.

Talented winemaker, Kari Auringer, joined Silver Trident in 2009 and she crafted the inaugural vintage of Twenty Seven Fathoms Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The following year, they debuted the renowned Benevolent Dictator Pinot Noir.


In March, 2015, Silver Trident opened the doors to their celebrated Tasting Home in Yountville. Furnished exclusively with the Ralph Lauren Home Collection, a whole new approach pairing great wines with world-class home décor was born. They’ve been welcoming guests from all over the globe ever since to experience their great wines and the world of Silver Trident in an elegant, yet wine-country-casual setting.
