A Singular Perspective

A Blog by Nickel & Nickel Winery


The Estate Collection holds a special place in our hearts. A little bit Russian River, a whole lotta Napa Valley, it’s a small taste of what we grow and make, from our family of wineries. Inspired by the wines in this classic four-bottle boxed set, Executive Chef Trevor Eliason created this festive four-course menu, recipes included. Full of rich autumn favorites, it’s perfect for a hungry table of six (although the hearty recipes could easily be stretched to accommodate eight)!
