Meet the Vintners
Scott Mangelson – After moving to the Napa Valley 20 years ago, the culture of food and wine-making drew me to my roots. Growing up amidst my family’s orchards and dairy farms, the love of nature’s goodness runs deep. With a strong passion for food and wine, and a degree in microbiology, a wine-making adventure was inevitable. Making world class wine has become one of my most invigorating endeavors. And with 15 years of experience producing award-winning wines (consistently rated 90+ points), the adventure continues.
Heidi Bamburg Tucker – My passion for wine began as a young girl growing up in California. My parents first introduced me to zinfandel, then other varietals, and I soon realized that wine was an essential part of each family meal and celebration. Over the years, I’ve developed a love of Cab, Merlot, and other rich, bold red varietals. Most importantly, I have enjoyed sharing wine with friends as I’ve traveled around the world. NIGHT reflects my passion for both wine and people together with the adventure and mystery that begins at sunset.
We love the mystery of night and adventure that comes to those who stay up past their bedtime. A walk in the vineyards under the moon and stars. The bright lights and excitement of a big city. We draw our energy from the night.
We believe in working hard and balancing work with family and friends to create a rich life. We are inspired by a quote from poet, Mignon McLaughlin, who wrote in the 1950’s, “For the happiest life, rigorously plan your days, and leave the night to chance.” We couldn’t agree more! You’ll find this quote on each of our wine labels.
We created NIGHT Wines to share our passion for great wine and making unforgettable connections with people, food, and music…at night.
Heidi and Scott split their time between St. Helena (Napa Valley) and Kirkland, Washington where they spend time with their families biking, hiking, skiing, and enjoying wine, new restaurants and hidden bars.
