About Nicora Wines
"For me it truly began in the cellar, where I worked for the funds to buy grapes and barrels, and spent many hours with purple hands and wet boots. My dream was to hand craft wines that would be both a personal expression and a reflection of the unique vineyards found within Paso Robles. At Nicora, I make wine using traditional techniques that are both time and labor intensive. Each year, I try to expand a bit more, whether it be searching out new-to-me vineyards or bottling just a little bit more, if Mother Nature allows." - Nick Elliott Winemaker/Owner

Wines to be poured:
2015 The Undisclosed 52% Viognier 48% Roussanne
2014 Euphoric 100% Grenache
2014 Buxom 100% Syrah

About Joel Jerome
The hot sun beats down on the iron gate leading into the Psychedelic Thriftstore, the Glassell Park recording studio of Joel Jerome. "I spend most of my time here," says Jerome. In fact, he almost never leaves

Jerome's real name is Joel Morales, but if you ask the 20 or so bands he's currently working with as a sound engineer or producer, they'll probably just call him "Papa Joel." In the last year or two, Cherry Glazerr, La Sera, Globelamp, Tashaki Miyaki, and Sarah Negahdari from Happy Hollows have recorded with him. They want his distinctive sound, his ability to harness harmonies over punchy, old school drums and guitar experimentation through a collection of vintage amps. Inside the studio itself, the aroma of dusty instruments and aged guitar wood creates the atmosphere of an old music shop. He's even got a Mellotron keyboard—a throwback to the one used on Sgt. Peppers. His studio includes a collection of acoustic guitars from the '70s, reminiscent of Neil Young’s old shack in Laurel Canyon, including a couple Yamaha red labels that fill the room with a warm, rustic glow. The album is being released through Manimal and Psychedelic Thriftstore Recordings (Jerome's new label), which currently has a backlog of over 240 complete recordings.

"Next year, I'll be releasing a lot of music," he says. "I mean, not like Ty Segall," he says with a smile, "but a lot." To say he's prolific would be an understatement. He's even got a Sgt. Peppers tribute album set to release titled With A Little Help From My Homies. Which is ironic, since he's always the one helping his friends bring their dreams to life at his Psychedelic Thriftstore—part recording studio, part funhouse. For the last three years, Jerome has been meticulously working on Psychedelic Thriftstore Folk, a 12-track album, which includes his seven minute opus, "Everybody Wants Somebody." The track is a rich, melodic journey that's highlighted by a 3-minute, Brian Wilson-sounding breakdown filled with a Manzarek organ solo, scorching sax, and guitar solo that drips with psychedelic ooze.
