Trinity outside Prontos

Our story

A perfect place to go with friends & family

If you had asked Trinity 27 years ago what her favorite spot was, she’d probably tell you about the unassuming country store surrounded by wineries. The moment she stepped foot in it, she knew it was special.

Today, she wants you to feel the same way about Prontos’ and experience the same love for food.
