2011 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Day

on July 11, 2014

It’s summer, and while we love Chardonnay we’re thinking Napa Cabernet—2011 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon, in fact. This year we’re celebrating our newest vintage on Saturday, August 2, with tastes offered of each of the 12 single-vineyard wines that make up this vintage.

What’s special about 2011? We think you’ll find that these wines share a beautiful balance and elegant expressions of each vineyard.

And you won’t go away hungry. Chef Trevor and his team are preparing an array of hors d’oeuvres to complement the flavors of the wines.

This event is nearly sold out, so if you want to attend, be sure to call us today at (707)967-9600.

Members of our wine clubs are the first to receive invitations to all of our winery events, as well as special pricing on wines and wine shipments. Learn about club member benefits here.

Celebrate The 2013 Harvest With Us!

on August 29, 2013

If you haven’t been to the Napa Valley during harvest, here is one more incentive: our second annual harvest party on September 28, 2013. We admit, Napa Valley is a wonderful place to visit year around, but the months of September and October are two of the most exciting. The valley is full of activity—the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of harvest. It’s not to be missed!

We celebrate harvest with current vintages of our single-vineyard wines, as well as a few surprises from the cellar paired with live music and hors d’oeuvres. Behind-the-scenes harvest tours will give you an inside peek at the care we give each vineyard. The event is planned for 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., so make reservations at your favorite nearby restaurant and join us for appetizers and wine!

If you haven’t already RSVP’d, you will want to do so right away as this event will sell out. Click here or call (707) 967-9600 for more information. We look forward to seeing you!
