Winemakers Ian Eastveld & Ryan Levy have always had a passion for cuisine, but their passion for wine started with Ian's family and Ian's dad, an avid wine collector. Ian's dad, Don, (pictured here with Ian) never hesitated to open old and rare wines to educate his kids (and their friends) by letting them taste the most renowned names in collectible wines. The name NICE pays homage to that family history. Ian's mom, Vicky, came up with the acronym N.I.C.E. for each one of her children- "N"atalie, "I"an & "C"indy "E"astveld. When you add winemaker Ryan to the acronym, you get the name of our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon wine project, NICER!
