Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is devoted exclusively to producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Based in Oakville, CA, on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property, construction of a cutting-edge winery facility housed within a vintage 1880s farmstead was completed in the summer of 2003, when the winery officially opened to the public. Guests are welcomed at the Sullenger House, a beautifully restored, late 19th century farmhouse with Queen Anne detail that was built on the site in the 1880s. Guided tours and tastings are offered several times each day, by appointment. Tours begin at the Sullenger House and include a walk through the historic Nickel & Nickel farmstead, restored 18th century Gleason Barn, authentic post-and-beam fermentation barn and underground barrel aging cellar. The tour ends with a seated, guided tasting of a selection of four single-vineyard wines.
