Description: Each Anam Cara wine is created from Nicholas Vineyard, first planted in 2001 by Nick and Sheila Nicholas.  It takes many years to learn a vineyard and their patience and intuition shows in the wines.  Here you’ll find a unique clarity in the white wines, and a signature dusty elegance in the Pinots that have garnered top awards, high scores and critical acclaim across the board. 

Origin of name: The words Anam Cara are Celtic for "friend of my soul" and represent rare friendships that transcend time and distance. To us, they also symbolize the long journey we have taken to make wine. Each of our wines is from the vineyard we live in and planted ourselves. Enjoy with good friends over a memorable meal. Nick, Sheila, Mark, and Heather Nicholas
