Nicora Wines

Nicora Wines is the sweat and blood of a midwestern farm boy destined to take over his father’s generations-old store, but instead opting to set out to The Golden State to create his own destiny with only a few dollars in his pocket. Taken under the wing of Torrin’s Scott Hawley, Nick Elliott worked for a few bins of fruit and released his first vintage in 2009, which blew us – and Robert Parker! – away.
