Tucked away right at the apex of Mendocino Wine Country between Hopland and Ukiah is a small, fmaily vineyard. You have to turn right, going southbound at the Seacho berry fields and gaunt down a short dirt road. There is amp, e parking only for about three visitor vehicles and the gardenpath you walk is equally inviting and cozy. 1you... More

This was an unexpected stop on our road trip up the 101. We were pleasantly surprised to find this vineyard and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Robin, the bartender in the tasting room was really friendly and told us a lot about the wines and the property. I wish we had more time to explore the... More

We have visited the vast majority of wineries in Mendocino County and Nelson Family Vineyards stands alone. A truly welcoming experience. The tasting room sits amidst a beautifully landscaped hillside with tranquil views of the vineyards. The very helpful and knowledgeable Sherrilynn made our tasting experience absolutely wonderful. Down a very short path from the tasting room you’ll find a... More

This is off 101, about a quarter mile off the road. The grounds are quite nice. The host is very helpful and fun to talk with. Wines are quite good. The wine club is well worth it, with 20% off. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We had a really pleasant visit to this winery. Unlike the impersonal tasting experIences at the large, commercial vineyards, we were treated to personal attention and a taste of 9 really varied wines, most of excellent quality. A really relaxing way to spend an hour - don't miss it !

We never miss an opportunity to stop by Nelson Family Vineyards on our annual trip to Mendocino County. We love the grounds with naturally landscaped plants and flowers surrounded by their vineyards, but our favorite spot is the redwood grove which is adjacent to their small but pretty tasting room. We usually grab a bottle of wine and picnic in... More

It was a lovely vineyard, but it was a little too far for us to travel. If you live closer, check it out.

After only our second visit to Nelson Family Vineyards we were wine club members and purchasing barrel futures. The tasting room though small, is warm and beautifully decorated with wood floors and bar. The wines are excellent and they have something for everyone - bubbly, crisp whites, warm reds and smooth desserts. The tasting room itself is located well off... More

My friend and I happened across Nelson Family Vineyard last summer while on a 4-state road trip. Sherrilynn was SO helpful and knowledgable! We literally tasted everything and left with a case of our favorites, along with a new 'Family'. LOVE the family plan!! I customized my Oct shipment to use as holiday gifts. It was perfect & everyone raved... More

A hidden gem! Just off Hwy 101, Nelson Family Vineyards is intimate and unpretentious. Sherrilynn is awesome. She let us taste from the barrel and even gave us off-menu pours from wines that were open from a recent event. There was a baguette and some local honey in the tasting room that we snacked on between tastes and Sherrilyn waives... More
