Perbacco has always been known for its classic Piemonte driven wine list featuring historical and legendary winemakers but we also feature an interesting and varied selection of California wines. During my time as Wine Director here at Perbacco, I have made it a priority to seek out small production wineries that are making food friendly, restrained style wine with personality and perspective. Trail Marker Wine Co. is one of these wineries.
Trail Marker is a new and upcoming winery sourcing their grapes from lesser-known vineyard sites throughout California. Emily Virgil and Drew Huffine make Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Santa Cruz and are now starting to experiment with more esoteric varietals such as Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch.
Perbacco was the first in San Francisco to feature their wines and we look forward to watching Trail Marker grow. We hope to share more of their unique wines with you in the future.
