Nichols Winery & Cellars

Nichols Winery & Cellars Nichols Winery is a small winery established in 1991 to produce ultra premium wine. Nichols wines are award winning, world renowned with international acclaim such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Meritage. Also, Soleil & Terroir, Silver Fox and Paso de Vinas are Nichols brands. Distribution is in US, Canada, Japan, China, Singapore and Taiwan. Chardonnay was the initial Varietal to be produced, while Pinot Noir followed in the 1993 vintage. In 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Pinot Blanc were also produced. Distribution is based on allocation to restaurants and wine merchants. Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir are released in the second year after crush, to insure they have enough time, to bring out their natural high qualities. This allows time for the wine to age and rest in the bottle and round out its character, after oak barrel aging. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel are released in the third year after harvest to give them time to soften and round out their tannins.
