Let me start off that Nicholson has a special place for us because we learned a lot here about drinking whites on our very first wine country trip in 2012, since then, we have been back for a total of three visits to Nicholson as my wife really enjoys their Chardonnay, so if I could give a half star rating,...

Great time.. Take in the sights walk in between all the vines grabbing grapes right off the vine to eat. Then head into the tasting room where you not only have a unique chance to meet the owner but also have the chance to ask him questions and learn more about Nicholson Ranch.

I came with a small group on tour and the visit was perfect, even if we were a little bit tired of our day as it was our last visit after 3 other vineyards..... Excellent explanation, great visit of the caves and good tasting. The Chardonnay is probably one of the best I tasted and trust me I tasted a... More

The Nicholson Ranch went above and beyond to provide excellent service to our group when our tour bus broke down. They made sure our group had the opportunity to order food from a local sandwich shop, water, and comfort throughout our stay. The staff is very courteous and helpful, and the Pinot Noir was fabulous!

This was our first stop on our wine tour (which was Platypus, highly recommend). We got there and our tour guide, Debbie, could not have been more helpful. She took us on an unbelievable tour of the grounds and gave us a different wine to try at each of the stops. Debbie was not only extremely warm, open & knowledgable... More

This was our favorite vineyard of about a dozen visited in napa and sonoma. The wine was delicious, the tourguide knowledgeable and friendly and the grounds immaculate.

My favorite Pinot Noir was the Cactus Hill Pinot Noir, but at $65 it was slight above my spending limit. The Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir for $45 was slightly overpriced, but also good. Tasting fee was waived with purchase of one bottle. Nice location and nice tasting room. Good service.

Defiantly one of the best. Visited 4 in vineyards Sonoma and 4 in Napa band this one of the top spots. If you have the chance to visit, do it! Great wine and fantastic views with a unique story.

This was our first wine country tour and we visited several estate wineries and one of the more corporate ones. This winery had a very intimate setting and you sample only a few wines but it was obvious they gave us the best of their reserves and vintages. Well played! I would have loved to have toured the underground vaults... More

I have visited repeatedly for more than a decade. Always enjoy the experience. It was busier today but our server was a delight.
