Proprietor-négociants, Chris Nickolopoulos and Elijah Pfister work with a handful of California's most respected grape growers and wineries selecting the finest rows, plots, barrels, and lots from each vintage throughout Napa Valley, North Coast, Central Coast, and Lodi in California. Wine and fine cuisine had always been part of Chris’s life in the Midwest, and Elijah grew up with a heightened interest in the farming lifestyle in Northern California. In early 2012, Chris was approached by Jim Gil and James Harden, close friends who owned Nine North Wine Company. Established in 2001, Nine North released wines that were second labels of two high-end Napa Valley Estates. Chris and Elijah recognized the opportunity to significantly grow their négociant business with an established brand, and took the leap. Their Hullabaloo zinfandel spends six months in American oak and exhibits bright fruit and acid, setting it apart from many heavier and jammier zinfandels, while still being rich and flavorful. It is balanced with the addition of a touch of petite sirah and malbec as well.
