Our Wines

We pride ourselves in making small batches of superb, distinct wine, sourced from family vineyards. Tucked away in the idyllic Napa Valley’s “nested” appellation of Chiles Valley (once known as the “High Valley”), our vineyards lie 600 to 800 feet above the Napa Valley floor. Our vines benefit from this unique terroir, with its high-altitude breezes, milder climate, and extended growing period. Our 12 vineyard blocks are named in honor of each of our founding father’s 12 children.

Our old-fashioned attention to detail is complemented by our investment in the latest winemaking equipment and the technical rigor of our fifth-generation head winemaker, Aimée Sunseri, a graduate of UC Davis in Viticulture and Enology.

Nichelini classics include Cabernet Sauvignon, old-vine Zinfandel and our renowned Muscadelle de Bordelais (formerly titled Sauvignon Vert). In addition, we have an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, Petite Sirah and some limited releases available only at the winery.

"It is a heavy baton to carry, but the honor of making legacy wines only drives me towards perfecting my craft," says Aimée.

Taste the difference 120 years makes.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine reflects the concentrated depth of flavor and smoothness that 32-year-old vines can produce. From this small, select vineyard, these premium grapes were hand-harvested and cellared in French oak. The wine shows an exquisite color of deep burgundy red, flavors of juicy tart cherry and blackberry, and a medium body with a clean finish and soft resonating tannins.

 Last year, Aimée, our winemaker, wanted something that the family had never done before and to discover what the terroir in the cooler Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley can do for a sparkling wine. The result was a tremendous success. As it was last year, it is 50% Pinot Grigio, which is actually a variation on Pinot Noir, and 50% Sauvignon Blanc. It was naturally fermented in the bottle in the traditional French method and aged in glass for a little over a year. The result is a very pale yellow, bright, clean wine with aromas and flavors of citrus that are refreshing on the palette. Only 125 cases made.

This wine was made from 100% Petite Sirah grapes hand-harvested from the Antoinette Block, named in honor of the 11th Nichelini child, born in 1913. Because of the vineyard location, it is known as “High Valley” Petite Sirah. Aimée’s objective is to create a Petite Sirah that highlights the power of this variety. The block that the grapes come from is an older section that struggles. The vines are intentionally thinned late for added stress to the vines, and they are thinned to ensure a balanced, uniform and distinctive crop. The result is a complex, inky-dark red wine that is full-bodied, very long-lived, with flavors of vanilla and blackberry, has well-structured tannins, a mild mid-palate and lingering finish.

This wine was made from 100% Zinfandel grapes planted by our family in 1929, during Prohibition. They are low-yielding and dry-farmed, resulting in exceptional density of flavor. A vibrant, garnet-red wine, barrel-aged in oak, revealing a nose and flavors of black currant, creamy vanilla and raisin, with medium to light body and softly structured tannins. This exceptional Zin reveals the complexity and maturity that only a truly Old Vine can produce.

This wine is the finale to our 125th anniversary year! It is 50% Pinot Grigio, which is actually a variation on Pinot Noir, and 50% Sauvignon Blanc.

Aimée, our winemaker, wanted something that the family had never done before and to discover what the terroir in the cooler Chiles Valley District of Napa Valley can do for a sparkling wine.

 This wine is 100% Sémillon with a medium body with a crisp finish. It was barrel fermented in 100% new French oak for three months. The result is a Bordeaux-style white wine with a color of champagne pearl, aromas of citrus and pear with a smoothness and slight creamy richness to the body; a delicious lemon soufflé.

This wine is a blend of two of Bordeaux’s white varietals: Muscadelle 70%, and Sémillon 30%. We planted the Muscadelle in 1946 and the Sémillon 2007. This mixture of young and old opened the opportunity to experiment and to do something interesting with two grapes that uniquely support each other. Estate grown, the grapes were hand-harvested and individually fermented in stainless steel. After blending, the wine was cellared in stainless for two months with no oak contact and then bottled. The result is a wonderful light-bodied white Bordeaux-blend style with refreshing floral and citrus notes. With only 8 acres of Muscadelle and 120 acres of Sémillon grown in Napa Valley, this wine is a rare treat indeed! 214 cases made
