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... More

Friendly staff, well balanced whites with a flowery nose. So good, we joined the wine club. Loved the new Pinot.

The winery is a half mile off Highway 101. It's not at the place with the old farm equipment. Great wine and nice people! Will be back to this winery!

I liked this place because it wasn't trying to appeal to the masses. The tasting room was very, very nice. The grounds were clean and inviting. There were beautiful oak trees lining the driveway. It just seemed anti-Napa, which I really appreciated.

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.
