Nichols Winery & Cellars
Nichols Winery is a small winery, established in 1991 by Keith Nichols to produce ultra premium wines with limited production of each Varietal. The winery produces Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Meritage and Zinfandel. In 2002 Syrah was started and 2005 a Sauvignon Blanc program was started. The winery is located in Paso Robles, California.
Paso Robles is a warm wine-growing region in the central coast of California. The warm days and cool nights are ideal for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, in that the grapes like warm temperature to show their true character of revealing forward bright wild berries, plum and cherry flavors in Cabernet Sauvignon. Cool nights allow the vines to shut down and rest for the next days push for enhanced flavors. This climate also allows for a long growing season with long hang time, which matures the flavors and gives them depth.
Keith Nichols has traveled to Toronto on many occasions to promote his wines during the annual California Wine Fair in April and the Toronto Sante International Wine Festival in May.
