About the Winemakers
We are two friends who discovered a mutual interest in wine and winemaking and began making wine on a small production basis in 2008. Our passion for wine and constant innovation and improvement results in excellent wine in every bottle.
Daniel Nice holds a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UC Davis. Winemaking inspires him for its particular blend of the scientific and the artistic creative processes. "Creating something that people can enjoy in a physical, visceral way is very rewarding and humbling."
Scott Sporte sees winemaking is an act of both creative and physical energy that can sometimes be lacking in an office environment. "Finishing a harvest and processing day with sore muscles and a clean wet concrete floor provides a satisfying 'job well-done' finish."
