Coming from that part of the world, it’s no wonder she became a winemaker. Nicole is winemaker at J Vineyards & Winery in Sonoma well known for still wine as well as sparkling. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her passion is apparent. The thing is, the world can be a very happy place by drinking more sparkling wine, don’t you think?
