Jeremy Nickel, Partner
Jeremy Nickel was born in Dallas, Texas. He attended school in San Francisco, but when school was out of session, home was the north wing of the old stone building in Oakville, known as Far Niente winery, where his father, Gil Nickel, and stepmother, Beth, resided. Jeremy graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, then returned to Napa Valley and worked at Far Niente's sister winery, Nickel & Nickel, during its opening year in 2003.

Today, Jeremy lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in and learning about his family's other business, Greenleaf Nursery. Greenleaf is the second-largest privately held commercial plant nursery in the United States. When Jeremy is not busy with Greenleaf, he dedicates as much time as possible to his family, friends and community. Jeremy also shares his father's passion for cars, motorcycling, racing, boating and flying.
