The young RN Estate Vineyard & Winery was established in only 2001, but has already gotten off to an auspicious start. It was founded by restaurateur Roger Nicolas, who runs the 40-acre California cost vineyard almost single-handedly. Though the first vintage was released only last year, the red wines RN produces have already garnered several tasting awards and are carried in restaurants like Ortolan (Los Angeles) and La Suite (San Francisco). Tastings and tours are available at the facility, but the wines sell out quickly because only 800-1000 cases are produced each year.
