Vinoce Vineyards

VINOCE IS A SMALL, FAMILY-OWNED WINERY owned by Brian and Lori Nuss. Over the last 31 years they have developed an intimate knowledge of growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc on the rugged, hillside slopes of Mount Veeder and are dedicated to creating wines that reflect the true expression of the Mount Veeder appellation.

THE MEANING OF VINOCE, pronounced (vin-o-chay):
It is a play on the Nuss Family name and Brian’s German-Italian heritage. Nuss means "nut" in German. Noce is "nut" in Italian. Intermingled with "vin" for wine, Vinoce means "wine nut."

Swanson Vineyards

Such a fun winery! The Swanson's were there when we paid a visit and took the time to come over and speak with us on a more personal level asking where we're from, and what we did to make small talk. A very lovely couple that made you feel at home. They also had a very nice gentleman playing music on a very special instrument (I can't remember the name) in the front garden/patio area.

This is your time. Time to enjoy a moment to yourself. A moment without the madness.

Company Overview
Above all else, wine should be fun, relaxing, and something you can afford to look forward to at the end of each and every day. Wine should never intimidate, make you think too hard, or create a new line item in your budget.
