The Story of Nalle
Winemaker, Andrew Nalle and his viticulturist wife, April run the show. Their three young children will produce the 2042 vintage.
Andrew’s parents, Doug and Lee, provide wisdom and support from their 40+ years of winery experience. Andrew’s younger brother, Sam, is a scientist in San Francisco and he provides encouragement and support.
Then there’s the bevy of friends who magically appear at the right moment to lend a hand. Steve Edgar, from Arizona, still shows up for crush, and has, since 1991.
The winery and home rest on land that has been in Lee’s family, the Henderlongs, since 1920’s. Her cousins, the Saini family, run the vineyard.
In addition to the estate Zinfandel, Carignane, Cabernet and Merlot vineyard, two other local growers, Bernier Farms and Hopkins River Ranch, provide Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a smile and a handshake.
“I can’t tell you how many places I go where the winery owners brush past you and barely say hello. We got a lot more, we learned about the wines, the history, and felt well cared for the entire experience. ”
