In 1964 Uriel Nielson planted the first commercial vineyard in Santa Barbara County, a region, considered at the time, too cold to grow grapes. He proved them wrong. Today, winemakers Jonathan Nagy and Ryan Pace continue to craft Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that express the purity and diversity of cool climate coastal AVAs.

The 2015 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir is a balanced and elegant wine, to be enjoyed with a variety of cuisines. Soft and smooth on the palate with a smokey cherry finish, Biba and I have had this wine with many pasta dishes, as well as with beef. veal, lamb, and pork, and it always enhances the meal. We love Pinot Noir and the Nielson 2015 is special.

For the entire month of November 2018, we are offering the Nielson Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2015 at the reduced price of $40 per 750 ml bottle and $10 per glass. Biba and I love this wine....and I think you will agree.
