A Singular Perspective

A Blog by Nickel & Nickel Winery

While much of the country may be pulling on stylish boots and bundling up in sweaters, we’re in summer redux here in Napa Valley. Predicted highs of 99 degrees coincided with Saturday’s harvest party, which meant we saw a lot of summer outfits. Who’s to judge if white is worn after Labor Day? Not we—though do be careful around the Cabernet.

Dan Martin and the Noma Rocksteady Band played while guests mingled sampling pizzas hot from the wood-burning oven and passed hors d’oeuvres. We took guests on behind-the-scenes tours, showing them everything from processing fruit that came in that morning to rehydrating yeast, punch downs and tasting wines that were partway through fermentation.

And there was wine, of course! We poured current release bottles, plus a few treats from the cellar.
