Robin was the perfect host. The wines were exquisite and the grounds were beautifully maintained flowers & native plants. Nelson Family vineyards is a rare gem among the many choices you have when visiting the wine country. We've been offered several "wine club" memberships...this is the first I felt was perfect match for us...

We stopped by Nelson Family Vineyards even though it wasn't on our initial list to visit and we were so happy that we did. The setting is so peaceful, gorgeous and lovely to walk around. The tasting room was very nice and every wine we tasted we loved! We ordered a case to be shipped home. The staff were very... More

We stopped at this beautiful property, pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and wonderful wines as well as olive oils and wine vinegars. There was a grove of beautiful trees and views of vines and orchards. There were beautiful flowers and grasses and pet friendly. Definitely worth a stop, even joined their wine club and looking forward to October shipment.

The tasting room is very inviting and the staff are friendly and laid back. In addition, the patio and the redwood grove provide for a beautiful stroll with a glass of wine and offer breathtaking wine-country views. Every wine, red or white, tastes amazing and rather affordable considering the quality. You'd pay 2-3 times as much for similar wine in... More

Nelson Family Vineyards is the best! The wine is amazing. They have a nice tasting room with beautiful views. The tasting room has the best staff and they are so friendly. It is a small family winery, but you will not be dissapointed.

This was an absolutely beautiful winery! On the day I visited, they let us taste 11 wines and all were very unique and delicious. Often times you go to wineries and try 5-6 wines and usually 1 and 2 standout. But out of the 11, they wer all really good. The hostess was very friendly and informative!

We happened to stop by this vineyard on a Sunday afternoon. It is located right off HWY 101. Robin Laughlin was in the wine tasting room that afternoon. She is the most knowledgeable person of all the wines, olive oil, and products sold at this Family Vineyards. She explained all their latest products,and helped us package 6 bottles of the... More

We were impressed with the wine enough to join their wine club. Robin was friendly, knowledgeable, and lack any of the pretense that you have to deal with in some tasting rooms. If you only have time to stop a one vineyard, this is definitely the one.

We are on a trip exploring wine areas we have never visited. We were referred to Nelson Family Vineyards by the pourer at a tasting room in Hopland. We are so glad we followed her advice and visited Nelson Family Vineyards. The wine is exceptional, and the attention you receive in the tasting room fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. We...
