It’s All in the Name

Trillium Vineyard was realized to focus on our passion for the region and its rich wine producing history.

– Karen Cross, owner

Trillium Vineyard is located on land where Karen’s father farmed and raised livestock.  Karen has many fond memories of bouncing in the pickup truck as she and her daddy rode the pastures, checked on the cows, and played in the creek.  Karen’s great aunt would take her on wildflower hikes.  They would walk the woodlands, pastures, and roadsides in search of wildflowers.  Auntee would identify each, and Karen was enthralled.  Karen loved discovering the tiny Bluets or Quaker Ladies, the wild ginger roots that looked like little brown jugs, and seeing the “ruby” in the center of Queen Ann’s Lace.  But her favorite of all was the simple but majestic Trillium Grandiflora.  Karen loved the symbolism of the Trinity found in the trillium plant.  There are three of everything:  three leaves, three sepals, three petals.  Bruce and Karen decided to name their vineyard Trillium in honor of the Trinity and as a symbol of their faith.  Look closely at the logo, and you will see the trillium in the center of the grape cluster.
