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 wine was made from 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a small vineyard block dedicated to the 10th Nichelini child, Allen James, born in 1909. From this unique, select vineyard, these premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were hand-harvested and cellared in 53% new and 47% neutral French oak. A rich boysenberry red in color, this wine has flavors of vanilla, ripe cherry, blackberry and black currant, is smooth with soft tannins and has a long lingering finish.

This wine was made from 100 percent Petite Sirah grapes hand-harvested from the Josephine Block, named in honor of the 3rd Nichelini child, born in 1894. Petite Sirah has been grown in California in the 1880s and produced by Nichelini as a single varietal since the 1970s. Because of the vineyard location, it is known as “High Valley” Petite Sirah. This is a complex wine that is a dark, inky purple color, medium-bodied, and long-lived with a nose of plum, black cherry and vanilla, with warming flavors of ripe blackberry and a smooth finish.

This wine was made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc Musqué (a more aromatic variety of Sauvignon Blanc). The grapes come from a small vineyard block named for Virginia, the 4th Nichelini child, born in 1896. Hand-harvested during the cool nighttime, these young vines produce especially vibrant flavors. Slowly fermented with no oak contact, there are aromas of grapefruit and guava with a crisp, clean resonating citrus finish.

This wine is a blend of 93% Zinfandel and 8% Petite Sirah. It is named for our iconic Roman wine press (featuring a massive wooden lever), which was in use for 65 years (1895 – 1955), and can still be seen at the winery today. The wine was cellared for 18 months in neutral French oak (67%) and new American oak barrels (33%). With notes of blackberry and nutmeg and flavors of cranberry and plum, it expresses soft tannins with a smooth finish. A family favorite since 1972, it is excellent with red meats and classic Italian dishes.

This medium to full-bodied wine (94% Merlot, 6% Petite Sirah) reflects the concentrated depth of flavor and smoothness that 31-year-old vines can produce. These grapes were harvested from the Mary Block, named for the seventh Nichelini child, born in 1902. Deep ruby red in color with intense flavors of plum, black cherry, and blackberry, with light traces of smoke and cedar. Aged in 36% new and 64% neutral American oak, it is a supple, rounded wine with a beautiful long finish.

Widely grown in southern Italy, Primitivo is a high-end Zinfandel by another name. This truly exceptional vintage has earned the distinction of a Reserve wine. 100% Primitivo, the clusters were hand-harvested at night, then barrel-aged in a precise proportion of 50% American and 6% French new oak. The result is a medium-bodied wine with a smoky bouquet of toasted walnut, possessing rich flavors of blackberry, cherry, cacao, and vanilla, harmonizing into a supple finish.

Muscadelle (previously called Sauvignon Vert) is a Nichelini classic.  This Bordeaux white grape comes from a small vineyard block planted 66 years ago, named for Rose, the 6th Nichelini child, born in 1899.  The grape production of the aged vines is low, concentrating the flavors.  It was hand-harvested, slowly fermented, and has had no contact with oak.  An off-dry white wine, it has a refreshing balance of hints of mineral on the nose, quince and lemon on the palate, and a medium body with a soft finish.

Our 2013 Roman Press White is a precise white Bordeaux-style blend of Sémillon 41%, Sauvignon Blanc 38%, and Muscadelle 21%. The grapes were hand-harvested, with the Sémillon alone fermented but not aged in oak. The result is a classic Bordeaux-style, medium-bodied white with refreshing floral and citrous notes.
