Oklahoma Native Creates Winery Gardens

Wine country tourism continues to boom and winery gardens are attractions growing in popularity. One of the most significant gardens created at a modern California wine property is the azalea collection at Far Niente in Napa Valley, which owner, Oklahoma native and wine industry guru Gil Nickel began developing in 1981.

According to Nickel, it is the largest azalea planting in California and contains more than 8,000 plants. He credits his formative years at his family's nursery in Oklahoma for providing him with both the background and the resources to create such a garden.
