Nicholson Ranch is an Estate winery in the truest sense of the word. We grow our grapes, make our wine and age our wine on the property. We are known for our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We make a small quantity of Merlot and Syrah.
The Nicholson Ranch mantra is holistic, embracing all aspects of the vine’s health and development. Quality starts in the vineyard. All vineyard work is done by hand to bring out the unique and intrinsic character of each individual variety. We do not use synthetic chemicals in the vineyard eschewing the use of weed killers and other chemicals. We practice dry farming and deficit irrigation to produce intensely flavored grapes. The grapes are fermented with native vineyard yeast that gives our wines distinct aromas and textures. The wines are aged underground under a natural cool environment and lastly they are bottled unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wines stimulate the senses, warm the heart and evoke a feeling of well-being.
