Holiday Cheer & Good Tidings

Happy December!  Hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and kick off to the holiday season.


For those who were celebrating Hanukkah, I hope that the eight crazy nights were filled with family and good friends.  This season, it’s about being together, sharing with one another and reflecting on the year that is coming to a close.  Here at Labor Wines 2013 was quite the year, but I promise you we’re definitely looking forward to 2014!


I had the pleasure of being included in a fantastic piece last week in the American Express OPEN forum by Jason Brick talking about ‘The One Thing You Need To Succeed In Business’ – which begs the question, is Passion the secret to success.  You can see the piece here.  I am ABSOLUTELY FLOORED that I was selected to be in the company of the three other gentlemen that were written about in the article.  They are:


Chris Gardner ‘The Millionaire Stockbroker’

Liu Xiang ‘Olympic Hurdler’

Brian Tracy ‘Motivational Speaker’


Please take a moment and read the piece; and if you are moved/curious/interested, please look into these amazing men.  Also, I’d love to hear your opinions and thoughts about your secrets to success and what has worked for each of you.  Reach out when you have time, it’d be great to chat more about this topic.


May the rest of your holiday season be warm and bright, may your homes be filled with joy and happiness and remember to tell those important to you, you love them.  We here at Labor Wines just wanted to thank you for your support and friendship,


Stay thirsty friends!


Corey Nyman & Dick Oppenheimer

LAS VEGAS (October 17, 2012) – NOVE Italiano at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and Labor Wines introduce ‘Sunday Feast’, a new family-style dinner offered each quarter. Featuring a set seasonal menu and a comfortable atmosphere, the new social dining experience launches with Labor Wines & Local Swine event on November 4 at 6 p.m.


The feast features a four-course meal prepared by NOVE’s Executive Chef Geno Bernardo paired with Labor Wines from founder and Las Vegas resident Corey Nyman. Guests, whether strangers or not, are encouraged to interact by using provided conversation-starter cards while dining together at a large communal table. The cards also will serve as raffle tickets to win the many prizes up for grabs.


With a focus on local produce and fall flavors, Chef Geno will provide pork from local heritage pigs raised at his farm located in Nevada. Taking the farm-to-table philosophy one step further, Geno established this small farm to fulfill his produce needs for the restaurant. To complement the dining experience, dinner will be paired with Labor Wines of the Willamette Valley, an up and coming Oregon winery which was started by Corey Nyman and his business partner, Richard Oppenheimer.

NOVE Italiano sits atop the Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower and combines inspired design, superb Italian cuisine and unsurpassed energy with some of the city’s most spectacular views. Named #1 Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas by Orbitz in 2009, NOVE Italiano transforms perceptions of Italian dining just as N9NE Steakhouse, situated in the original Palms tower, revolutionized the American steakhouse. Created by Executive Chef Geno Bernardo, the menu offers a wide range of crudo (which means “raw” in Italian, often ceviche or sashimi), thin-crust pizzas, a variety of steaks and happy hour specials, including $7 select wine, premium cocktails and signature dishes. The restaurant is a unique blend of classical and modern elements, an intriguing combination that permeates both the dining room and the kitchen. NOVE Italiano is open Sunday through Thursday from 6 – 10:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 – 11 p.m. Connect with NOVE on Twitter @NOVELV and on Facebook.



Birthed in 2010, entrepreneurs Dick Oppenheimer and Corey T. Nyman partnered to launch Labor Wines, a boutique Oregon winery.  Starting with a 2009 Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Labor Wines began with only 280 cases in its initial production.  Oppenheimer and Nyman continued the growth in 2012 introducing a 2011 Pinot Blanc and 2010 Pinot Noir while furthering the business and expanding both the quantity of wine and distribution.  With a sincere passion for wine and hard work, Oppenheimer and Nyman decided upon the name Labor Wines from their belief that “Everything takes Labor to accomplish.  Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction.  Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done.  From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.”  Labor is distributed in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas as well as available for direct sales in over 30 states.  For more information visit,

Spring Wine Events!

With Memorial Day Weekend just days away, I wanted to take a moment to let you all know about some pretty cool events coming up for us here at Labor Wines.

This Saturday, May 26 we will be holding our 1st ever Las Vegas tasting! The event is FREE and all over the age of 21 are welcome to attend.  Corey will be pouring our newest vintage of 2010 Pinot Noir at Marche Bacchus from 11:00am until 1:00pm (or until the wine runs out!), who’s thirsty?  For those of you that have not been to Marche Bacchus before, it is a very cool wine shop and restaurant in the Lakes run by very good friends of ours, Jeff & Rhonda Wyatt.

We hope you are able to join us!

The next event coming up is going to be on Friday, June 1 at the Hostile Grape, at the M Resort in conjunction with Sonny and Chris from Rock n’ Roll Wine. We’ll be pouring both wines complimentary from 5:00pm until 7:00pm, then the wines will be available by the glass for the rest of the night during the live music performances. And, as a reminder, this is also a 21 and over event, so please leave the kids at home. Sonny and Chris of Rock n’ Roll Wine are great guys and longtime supporters – we’ve been fans of theirs and their events here in Las Vegas for years, so please come down and support!

Looking forward to seeing you at one or both tastings if you can make it and as always, thank you all for your constant support and love of wine!

James Beard Award-winning Chef, Andy Ricker’s Portland Favorites

Came across a great restaurant suggestion list for Portland, Oregon by Andy Ricker – 2011 James Beard Best Chef Winner earlier today via the James Beard Foundation, find it here.  If you’re fortunate to live in PDX or just taking a trip to the Pacific Northwest, do your best to check out some of these spots.  Additionally, make sure you visit one of Chef Ricker’s restaurants, check out his original Pok Pok and then discover the rest!

I can’t wait to head back to Portland and visit some of the restaurants on his list and enjoy the most amazing wings I ever had, which were at Chef Ricker’s Whiskey Soda Lounge – basically the ‘waiting room’ for Pok Pok.

Additionally, if you’re curious to learn about where Labor is going to be served around the country or interested in purchasing our wines directly feel free to contact me via email, or on my cell, 702.466.0987, plus you can always reach us via TwitterFacebook.
