An abundant harvest and special events, from private parties to wine club sponsored events, made 2012 a full, rewarding year. Stand-out occasions include our annual Futures event, the Bacchanalia dinner, V Foundation Wine Celebration, Cabernet Release Day and our inaugural Harvest Party.
Here are just a few images from the year.

Each spring brings bright splashes of color to the Nickel & Nickel landscape.
A tremendous swath of flowers ran the length of the property along Highway 29 all summer long. Travelers frequently stopped to capture the view on their cameras. Landscape Designer Daniel Townsend wrote about the special mix of flowers here. (photo by Robb McDonough)
