Winery Expansion wil bring 400 jobs to San Joaquin County | Business
It will also bring in about 400 new jobs once the bottling lines are installed, said Roger Trinchero, chief executive of the Napa Valley-based vintner, as he addressed about 400 growers and business leaders at Tuesday's Lodi Grape Day luncheon.
The San Joaquin Partnership assisted Trinchero with this most recent expansion. The Partnership was instrumental in the company's initial location to San Joaquin County in 1998 as well as its 2009 addition of a crushing facility (pictured).
The San Joaquin County Community Development Department also assisted in this expansion.
The company - whose leading brands include Sutter Home, Mènage à Trois, Trinity Oaks and the Wine Cube sold at Target - looks to grow in the next 10 years from shipments of 19.6 million cases of wine in 2012 to more than 30 million cases. Expansion of its Westside Winery off Woodbridge Road and I-5 in Lodi and creating a new bottling and distribution center there for all its high-volume brands are key to support that growth, Trinchero said.
