Our Story

Meet Andrea and Rob Nickels, the owners who are proud to officially introduce Hardware Hills Vineyard to Central Virginia!


After moving to the Hills from Davidsonville, Maryland in July of 2021, Rob and Andrea have been hard at work learning the many aspects of winery life:  bottling, harvesting, and the art of winemaking.   They are also proud empty-nesters with four children now living in New York, Texas, Indiana, and Tennessee.

Please pay them a visit as Andrea and Rob can often be found in the tasting room enjoying the company of wonderful customers and friends.


On some days, GSP pup Sam or new  puppy Ruby will come down to greet customers and soak up some love and attention.
