We traveled to Trio for a wine tasting that they have on at least a weekly basis. Trio is in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you, the atmosphere inside is wonderful and is very unique and very relaxing. The tasting consisted of seven wines, along with three cheeses, and a cured meat in Trio's loft area. The tasting was very informative and the wine and accompaniments were excellent. The value of the wines tasted ranged from the mid-teens to the mid-forties. It was a very enjoyable hour or so. We then adjourned to a nearby table for dinner.
The menu at Trio is limited to tasty appetizers, a few salads, an assortment of panini, and desserts. We ordered their antipasta platter to begin with. A few of us ordered appetizers to share for dinner, while others ordered a panini each. The antipasta platter was plated with small samplings of each item. The portions are small on this platter, but very tasty. The panini (Gouda and Roast Beef, Brie and Prosciutto, and House Grilled Cheese) were served with a basket of chips. They were all extremely flavorful. The appetizers, while excellent, are small on the portion size, so if you are planning on sharing or extremely hungry, you may want to consider several for the table.
We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner that was sampled during the tasting. I mention this because it was charged out at $10 more than the pricing on the tasting sheet, so I am not sure if there was a corkage fee from their own house or if this was an oversight in the bill. Regardless, a minor discrepancy in what was a wonderful evening.
I recommend the wine tasting and the restaurant for lunch or dinner.
