Parducci Wine Cellars is very proud to introduce Winemaker Nichole Birdsall. She joins Head Winemaker Bob Swain, in crafting award-winning wines. After earning Bachelor degrees in Enology at California State University Fresno and Nutritional Science from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo, Nichole embarked on her winemaking career. Over the last 15 years Nichole has worked for well-regarded wineries including Virginia Dare Winery (a Francis Ford Coppola Winery), Treasury Wine Estates, Bronco Wine Company, Leelanau Wine Cellars and Hacienda Wine Cellars.
“I’ve always loved Ukiah and to now have the opportunity to work and live in this community at such a venerable winery is a dream,” enthuses Birdsall. “On top of all of it I get to work side by side with Bob Swain and learn from such an experienced winemaker”.
We are excited to have Nichole join us here at Parducci Wine Cellars!
