A. F. Nichols

A. F. Nichols Wines

A. F. Nichols is a limited production winery established by proprietor and winemaker Alex Nichols. A recent graduate of Oregon State (2009) with a degree in Enology and Viticulture, he founded A.F. Nichols at the age of 22 and at 25 is one of Oregon's youngest commercial winemakers. Alex's winemaking experience includes working harvests at Corvallis's Belle Vallee winery while he was in college, harvest in New Zealand, and several years at Adelsheim. Alex is committed to making the best wine possible with traditional winemaking techniques. His wines are classic, elegant and understated.

Alex made his 2010 wines with his wife and co-proprietor Aubrey Nichols at Adea Wine Company. They made a total of five barrels from Pinot noir grapes picked at Lillie's Vineyard and from two blocks at OSU's Woodhall Vineyard. Lillie's Vineyard was planted in 2001 and is adjacent to the Dusky Goose estate vineyard, Rambouillet. It is off Worden Hill Road in the Dundee Hills, with such famous vineyards as Maresh, Ana, and Winderlea nearby. Located in the South Willamette AVA, Woodhall was planted in 1980 and donated to OSU in 2000. The 2010 vintage resulted in two wines, the 2010 Principio, and a single vineyard designate, Lillie's Vineyard. In 2011 Alex and Aubrey made 145 cases of Principio and their first Willamette Valley Pinot noir.
