Husband and wife duo, Greg and Nikhila Narra Davis, founded Kalasi Cellars. They combine Nikhila’s extensive experience in grape growing and wine making with Greg’s business acumen to create a unique winery with fantastic wines. At Kalasi Cellars, Nikhila takes the reins on “vines and wines,” while Greg focuses on finance, operations, and marketing.

Babydoll Southdown Sheep
Our Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep came to us via a former vineyard and current sheep breeder in Colorado. These sheep serve an important role in the vineyard: they help control weeds to minimize sprays that are needed. Outside of their role in the vineyard, they’re happy to meet customers and receive some grain or a head scratch. They have a lot of personality and love people, just like dogs.
This friendly flock has another added benefit. They produce some amazing wool! Every spring our sheep will be sheared, their wool will be cleaned, and spun into yarn. Be on the lookout for some Babydoll Southdown yarn available for purchase in our tasting room!
Dalai is our resident guard, patrolling 24/7. His main role is to keep our Babydoll Southdown sheep safe. If he spots a predator, he’s sure to intervene. His first instinct is to make sure the sheep are safe. To do this he’ll either herd the sheep into their shed, or he will stand between the sheep and the predator. If his 6′, 4oolb frame doesn’t intimidate a predator, he will then try to make loud noises to scare them away. As a last resort, he will put his body in harms way to protect the sheep and take out the predator.
