Build A Case

Nicholas Cole Cellars is an artisan estate winery in Walla Walla, Washington devoted to red wine of exceptional character and quality. Each wine is carefully crafted and blended for the ultimate balance of concentration, complexity and grace while remaining true to Columbia Valley terroir. Production is extremely limited.

In December of 2010, Mike Neuffer wrote -

"In choosing to refocus my energies on raising my children, I am placing an indefinite hiatus on winemaking and future vintages of Nicholas Cole & GraEagle wines. I will miss walking the vineyard, sampling grapes, the excitement of harvest, long exhausting days of crush and even the tedium of barrel management and bottling. Most of all, I will miss the great friends, loyal customers and the many fantastic people I have met and worked with in an industry I truly love. Thank you for all of your support."

Founded on the belief that great wines are made a “vine at a time,” Nicholas Cole Cellars is surrounded by estate vineyards. They planted their steep, south-facing slope in 2001 with all five Bordeaux varieties in addition to Syrah and will have their first harvest in the fall of 2004. While the vines mature, Nicholas Cole will continue to source grapes from the finest vineyards in the state farmed by growers dedicated to low yields and outstanding fruit expression.

Nicholas Cole Cellars is surrounded by 40 acres of estate vineyards. Planted in 2001, this steep, south-facing slope is adjacent to their Walla Walla Valley winery. The vineyard is planted to Syrah and all five red Bordeaux varieties. The first harvest of the Estate Vineyard occurred in the fall of 2004.
