Turn Local for Trinity County Produce, Wine, and Good Eats
Many visitors to Trinity County ask about how to have an authentic experience and feel what it is like to be a Trinitian. There is no better way to be local than by experiencing Trinity through its locally grown foods.
Trinity County has a growing agriculture industry with the goal to supply our restaurants and schools with high quality products. Our Trinity County wineries produce wonderful and unique wines for almost every taste. You can find many of these products showcased at events that are calendared throughout the year.
Each of Trinity County’s six regions expressed their spirit through their options of restaurants, cafés, and grills. Whether it is artisan wood-oven pizzas, gourmet burgers, or that amazing Trinity River salmon over risotto, our Trinity chefs welcome you to try something new.
