Small Lots & Screwcaps
Small is big. Really big. Nielson Wines are crafted with small-lot winemaking techniques—hand pruning, block-by-block harvesting, barrel fermentations and lees stirring—which allow each wine to clearly reflect its origin and express its unique character. These precise techniques result in wines of extraordinary minerality, acidity and balance. To top it off (no pun, intended), the screwcap closures fit the casual, outdoorsy culture and lifestyle of Santa Barbara County. No corkscrew required for these beauties.
Central Coast California's First AVA
Santa Barbara County’s northern most appellation, Santa Maria Valley’s unusual east-west orientation channels cold ocean air and fog directly into the valley, creating one of California’s longest growing seasons. Diverse soils and microclimates result in grapes that have widely different flavor profiles but share exquisite balance and complexity. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay thrive here, as do Syrah and Pinot Blanc. In a testament to “what grows together, goes together,” the region's wines—known for their “Santa Maria spice” pair perfectly with Santa Maria-style barbecue. Another fun fact: The movie Sideways, which featured the wines of Santa Maria Valley, took its title partly from the valley’s east-west direction.
