Troll Bridge Cellars
Napa Valley AVA
A rising star winery crafting exceptional wines in Napa Valley
Founded by vintner Allan Ezial, Troll Bridge Cellars is a new under-the-radar, high-end winery project located in Napa Valley. The brand produces small-lot premium wines with a strong focus on Cabernet Sauvignon-based red blends, with fruit sourced from highly respected vineyards in Coombsville, Oakville and Rutherford appellations. Each year, Troll Bridge Cellars makes something a little different and special, and distinctive to the vintage.
Born and raised in Northern California’s Bay Area, Allan Ezial is also the owner of a marketing design firm with many clients in the Napa Valley wine industry. Over the years, he has developed relationships with many exceptional people - not only in marketing departments, but with winemakers, vineyard managers, hospitality directors and winery owners. These people helped nurture Allan’s passion for wine and inspired him with their dedication to their craft. Allan eventually decided to combine his passion for great wine, respect for the art of winemaking, and his creative background to create a world-class wine of his own and Troll Bridge Cellars was born.
It is Allan’s belief that in order to craft exceptional wines, you must start with exceptional fruit. Through his resources and connections made over the years, Allan has achieved access to premium blocks in some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. He meticulously hand selects the fruit for his Troll Bridge Cellars wines and it is this discerning manner that makes each of the winery’s vintages truly special and very limited in quantity.
To craft the wines for Troll Bridge Cellars, Allan teamed up with winemaker Jon Engelskirger who has made wines for several of Napa’s biggest names (including Turnbull, Hanna, and Robert Pepi). Jon has honed his winemaking style for over thirty years in Napa Valley and brings a refreshing and incredibly well experienced approach to Troll Bridge Cellars. These wines are exclusively available through the winery and select high-end restaurants in the area.
