Hey Oenophiles! We have another wonderful winery to introduce you to! Please help us welcome and congratulate our latest Live Client: Hannah Nicole Vineyards & Winery! Their online store is not up and running, powered by Nexternal’s eCommerce Software!
Neil & Glenda Cohn never intended to be in the wine business. In 1999, they purchased ten acres of land in the heart of the best agricultural region in California; to plant Granny Smith Apples! However, times were changing and the price of apples plummeted, so they made the decision to plant Cabernet grapes instead. And then they were hooked…
By 2002, they had been bitten by the wine bug. Like many winery owners, what started as a weekend hobby in the garage quickly grew into an unbridled passion to bring great handcrafted wines to a larger audience than just friends and family. Neil & Glenda wanted to show the world that they could make world class wines from one of California’s first grape growing regions. Contra Costa County was home to some of the original vineyards planted at the turn of the 19th century. Due to the value of the great Brentwood soil for producing incredible produce, grape growers were encouraged to take their vines to less valued land where grazing sheep and cattle were a more common site than agriculture. Little out of the way places you may have heard of, like Napa and Sonoma Counties. Those that stayed have kept the traditions and the quality of those original vineyards, and continue the legacy of winemaking that began over 100 years ago.
Purchasing eighty acres of prime land on Balfour Road in Brentwood, the dream of Hannah Nicole Vineyards continued. They first planted Bordeaux Varietals and then added Rhone varietals, from which they now produce over ten wines. Our flagship wines, Viognier and Meritage, showcase the grandeur and elegance that are Contra Costa Wines. Hanna Nicole continues to expand their plantings, our varietals and our portfolio of wines to bring the best of this Once Old, Now New Again, wine region to their Customers. With the completion of their state of the art 18,000 square foot winery, tasting room and event center in the Summer of 2009, they have created a world class wine destination for wine lovers everywhere!
Neil & Glenda hope you will visit them on your next trip to Northern California Wine Country. And if you can’t, you can still buy their fabulous wines in their online store!
