We may be getting ready for harvest, but it’s also flower season at Nickel & Nickel. Landscape Designer Daniel Townsend has again worked wonders with a magical mix of zinnias, cosmos and, a new addition this year, sunflowers. Enjoy!

We officially released our 2010 Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard Cabernets in August to an appreciative crowd.
Winemaker Darice Spinelli describes the 2010 Cabernets as showing ripe fruit, with polished tannins and a nice integration of oak. The wines strike a nice balance of being approachable now, but able to evolve beautifully in bottle.
To learn more about these wines, visit our portfolio or you may acquire your favorites among the vintage online here.
Guests on our tours and tastings have the opportunity to taste several of these 2010 Cabs side by side. We’re currently pouring:
2010 Nickel & Nickel C. C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
2010 Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
2010 Nickel & Nickel State Ranch, Yountville, Napa Valley
2010 Nickel & Nickel Kelham Vineyard, Oakville, Napa Valley
We are in one of our busiest seasons of the year, so please call well in advance of your planned visit. The wines presented on tours and tastings change every few weeks. We look forward to seeing you!

An abundance of texture and color lead to the Sullenger House entrance.
The grounds of our 1870s-era gentleman’s farmstead here in the Napa Valley are planted with the same flowers that may have flourished on this bucolic country estate more than a century ago. A stroll in the rose gardens, surrounded by the architecture of a bygone era, is enough to overwhelm you with a sense of time travel. A palette of soft pastel blues, lavenders, pinks and purples blanket the beds around the Sullenger house and main entrance to the winery. Blue and white Victoria Salvias are ready to push their spires ever higher above the waves of petunias, rising like candelabras.
Working together with my team and Mother Nature, we form a path connecting the past to the present, with a keen eye to the future. Please join us in the gardens as the days of summer saunter in.
