Our Story

Why make our own wine? We started Nuance to explore the many facets (Nuances?!) of winemaking and to craft wines to enjoy with our friends and family. Maybe it’s in our DNA–Dan grew up in the heart of Northern California’s prime agricultural land and Ruthann’s grandfather made Zinfandel in his midwest cellar. Why not make our own wine!

Our winemaking journey is an exploration of the depth and breadth of vineyards throughout the Napa and Sonoma valleys. We started with Cabernet and have added Savignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel varietals. We blend each vintage to enjoy any time–no need to wait for a special occasion to open a bottle.

Have fun and enjoy! It’s as simple as that!
