Winemaker Julien Fayard is the creative soul with complete authority over the wine quality while Cal Nicholson juggles everything else. No wine will ever wear the Nicholson Jones label unless it passes the rigorous standards set by Julien.
“As a winemaker, my job is to bring out the best qualities that the vines have provided. I don’t seek to make a style of wine but more so to make wine that sings of its place, its history and its uniqueness. That’s my goal as a winemaker, to make wines that are pure expressions of their environment and not mask it. Wines with an identity.”
