Trinchero Family Estates has teamed up with the Robertson Family of Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty fame to produce Duck Commander Wines.

The wines to be produced include Triple Threat 2011 Red Blend, Wood Duck 2012 Chardonnay, and Miss Priss 2012 Pink Moscato, which will be made from grapes sourced from California vineyards.

Formed in 1972, Duck Commander is a family-owned and family-run business that produces and supplies professional duck calls.

To celebrate the launch of wines and to plan for the upcoming vintages and varietal line-up of the brands, the two firms are hosting a private dinner party on 18 November 2013, which will be followed by an intimate media ‘Happy, Happy, Happy Hour’ reception at St Helena, California on 19 November 2013.

Trinchero Family Estates principal, vice chairman and CEO Roger Trinchero said there are some natural synergies between the Trinchero family and Robertson family businesses.

"Both companies were built on family values with a mission to provide consumers with quality products. This has helped us both establish customer loyalty which continues on from one generation to the next," Trinchero added.

Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson said they decided to create Duck Commander Robertson Family wines because they know that many of their customers and their viewers choose to celebrate family moments with wine.

"We knew we needed to find a family company in the heart of wine country that could produce authentic, quality wines. The Trinchero family is the right fit, and the wines are delicious," Robertson added.
