Known as “The King of Cabernet,” legendary winemaker, Nils Venge, has been making stellar Cabernet Sauvignon, along with many other varietals in the Napa Valley since his arrival in 1970. Nils’ philosophy on making wine is that it must reflect the best qualities that the varietal has to offer; sometimes a single vineyard, sometimes a single appellation, or a blend of appellations to make the best wine in a particular vintage. Despite his reputation as “The King,” Nils is a down-to-earth, cheerful, full-of-life kind of guy whose wines not only reflect the character of their region, but also seem to reflect his personality – bold, yet approachable, friendly and fun yet with layers of complexities.
At 71 years young, Nils is still very active with his Wineries, Vineyards and Consulting. Here's where you can find out about Nils' projects and how you can find some outstanding "Grape Juice"
