Nickel & Nickel is located in Oakville, along Highway 29, on 42 acres that were originally settled as a farmstead in the 1880s. The Napa Valley winery's collection of classic barns along with the site's original Queen Anne style home brings the historic farmstead back to life, while housing a cutting edge winery capable of hand crafting up to 25 single vineyard wines. The land was first developed by John C. Sullenger, a successful prospector and owner of gold, silver and quicksilver mines, who acquired the Oakville parcel in 1865. Nickel & Nickel purchased the property in 1998. The plan was three fold: to restore the Sullenger farmstead, construct new buildings that are architecturally compatible to the historic structures, and house an ultra modern winery uniquely suited to producing single vineyard wines. "Our goal was to develop a modern winery, specially outfitted to meet the needs of single vineyard winemaking, while respecting the history of the location," says Nickel & Nickel director of winemaking and chairman, Dirk Hampson. He adds, "Anyone driving past on Highway 29 will see a restored farmstead that appears to have been there for generations, without realizing the classic barns house an extremely sophisticated winery." The Sullenger farmstead is arranged around three sides of a barnyard and surrounded by 80 year old olive trees and a white, three rail fence.

"Les Pommiers" Pinot Noir draws its name from the apple orchards emblematic of the Russian River Valley's agricultural history. At once elegant and intense, Les Pommiers is the consummate blend of fruit from our vineyards located primarily in the Green Valley and upper Middle Reach areas of the Russian River Valley AVA. Our grapes are farmed according to organic principles and minimally handled at the winery. The wine is deftly shaped with a subtle combination of new and once used French oak barrels. Les Pommiers captures aromatics of wild raspberry, black cherry, plum and floral notes that yield to mineral, spice and toasty oak. It has a juicy, coating entry, followed by more layers of raspberry and cherry fruit, and ripe, integrated tannins.

Tasting Notes: Wine Spectator 92 points-
