We went here as part of a wine tour. Beautiful location, they meet you outdoors and serve wine as you look around the beautiful area. Then you walk through vineyards to get a close up view of vines. Then you go to tasting room for more wines. Explanation of wine making and area is excellent. Wines are expensive but were... More

This was the last stop of our tour, a small group of 8. The opportunity to walk among the grapevines and tour of the caves made this my favorite stop that day. Wonderful wine, wonderful conversation should not be missed - a true 5/5.

I have been here several times and just love it. Scott, Annika, Chris and Chris are amazing. I'm a red wine drinker but I truly love their Chardonnay. I love that the owner Deepak comes out and will just sit with us and chat. This is my go to winery when I have out of tone guests and want to... More

This was our last stop on a tour to 4 wineries with Platypus Wine Tours. It was also our favorite. My husband isn't usually fond of white wines but he wanted to buy 2 bottles of their Chardonnay. Every wine in our tasting was unique and delightful, we had to join their wine club. Truly a great experience here. Plus,... More

This was my favorite winery tour of the four we did because of the cave tour. So cool! I think he said that they were one of only a few that had caves (apparently they're pretty expensive). Even got to see a bat in there! The tour guide was also a sommelier and very knowledgeable of the wines. We met... More

This winery is in a beautiful, relaxed setting. We had a flight of four tasting for $10. I would say the staff was not very professional or accommodating, but good help is hard to find. It would have meant a lot to at least rinse out my glass when you switched from white to red wine, since apparently I couldn't... More

We went to Nicholson as recommended by the book "Back Lane Wineries". We have used this book as a guide to Sonoma and Napa wineries with great success. Nicholson was no exception and proved to be a great find. Every wine was off the charts superb. The people were friendly and offered a comfortably unrushed atmosphere to an exquisite wine... More

Nicholson Ranch has a lovely vantage point over some of the valley region, while the tasting room itself is full of light and opens onto a lawn area where you can sit and enjoy your tastings. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and are also open until 6pm so a great spot for a tasting later in the day.... More
