The barrel cellar...

The Gleason Barn was built around 1770 in New Hampshire, then, dismantled and shipped in pieces to Nickel & Nickel in 2003.

The Dolce is a sweet treat, for sure...

Seriously. This cheese.

Nickel & Nickel is such a cozy and charming winery; I felt more like I was visiting a friend's house than one of the best wineries in Napa - no pretense whatsoever here. Nickel & Nickel was a favorite even before our visit but the experience makes it even more special. Best cheese of all the wineries we visited - hands down - and my favorite wine from the tasting was the 2012 Copper Streak Vineyard Cabernet. So. Yummy.

Check out the Nickel & Nickel website for more info - it's a lovely experience. ")
