We are so excited about our win at the 2017 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Annual "Rodeo Uncorked!" International Wine Competition. Our 2013 Notorious Mt. Veeder Malbec just won a Double Gold, Class Champion, and was selected as the Reserve Grand Champion Best of Show in the entire competition! One of our winemakers, Ryan Levy, is a former Rodeo Scholarship recipient, so this is truly a full-circle moment for us.
We make some great wines from estate vineyards in Argentina, California, and Texas. Each one is made with love and food in mind because our Winemakers are also Le Cordon Bleu-trained chefs. Our current labels include NICE, Notorious, Testamento, The Stag, and The Vixen. Our flagship wine is our highly rated, rare Nice Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. We hope you will try our delicious, boutique wines and support our small production, family owned winery.
Our excitement continued at the 2017 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Annual "Rodeo Uncorked!" International Wine Competition. Our 2013 The Vixen Red Blend just won a Double Gold and Reserve Class Champion in the New World Grenache and Grenache=based Blend category. Continuing the trend, our Sold Out Texas Blanc won Silver and our Nice Malbec Reserve won Silver in their respective categories.
Our monthly wine clubs are geared toward wine education. Our Sommeliers, Winemakers, and Nice Wines Team select wines that typically come from small, family owned wineries; friends we've made on our own winemaking journey (you'll receive Nice Wines periodically as well!). Come experience wines we enjoy and learn about regions and food pairings along the way!

Take advantage of their expertise and our friendly staff and learn more about wine in the process. Join us on a NICE journey!
