There is so much behind a great bottle of Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard wine: carefully farmed vineyards, impeccable winemaking and a team of people passionate about our wines. Through our blog, we’ll give you an inside look at the personalities and stories behind the scenes.
We invite you to explore our singular point of view and see what makes Nickel & Nickel and our single-vineyard wines so special. See you soon!
The vineyards are green and burgeoning with new growth—well on their way to producing the 2013 vintage—but a lot of us here at the winery are still thinking about 2012. That’s right, we’re talking Nickel & Nickel Napa Cabernet Futures.
Wine Club Manager Julie Zanze shared a bit about Futures and the Thief Club earlier. What we love about the opportunity to acquire these wines right now is that fans are able to snap up their favorite wines among the vintage before they sell out. (If you’re a long-time friend of Nickel & Nickel, you know this happens all too often!)
True, a little patience is required as the wines mature in barrel, undergo bottling and then take on a little more age in bottle—but it’s well worth it. Wines are shipped in late winter of the year the wines release—so lucky 2010 Cabernet Futures buyers have already received their wines this year, while the rest of us are awaiting the August release party.
