We did a tour and had a great time. Chris did a wonderful job - we have never been on a vineyard tour and he answered all our questions and was very personable. We enjoyed the wine a lot and the scenery was beautiful!

White wine selection was limited. Book a tour of their caves. Nice Spanish feeling patio space with helpful and kind staff. Good view. Right off the highway.

Nicholson Ranch was by far the best winery we visited in Sonoma! From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, Debbie made our stay spectacular. Debbie's wisdom on not only the wine, but the geology and history of Sonoma was spectacular. Every wine was excellent, the experience was phenomenal, and the views and scenery were astounding. I...

Visited here on a tour from San Francisco. The views are stunning and the owner and staff are friendly and very passionate about their wine. They have the best Pinot Noir I have ever tasted! Definitely worth a visit.

This is the place to visit if you'd like a private cave tour with a large tasting room in the cave. The best Pinot noir We've tasted.

We had a group of about 20 in Napa for the weekend and decided to have a lovely lunch by the lake at Nicholson. Unfortunately, the lake is covered with algae right now, so not so lovely. And while the winemaker himself was gracious and kind, our wine pourer seemed resentful to have to walk outside to the lake to... More

We decided to visit a winery in Sonoma, instead of the more popular or famous Napa valley wineries because some of our tour members had already visited a large winery in Napa. And the final choice of Nicholson Ranch came about because of a combination of time & distance options available to us but the very nice response over the... More

On our scenic drive through Sonoma we passed by Nicholson Ranch and decided to stop in. We were stunned by the beautiful view and upon entering the tasting room we were greeted by the owner. He was a delightful man who spent time walking is through our choices and educating us on his lovely vineyard. I would highly recommend stopping... More

My husband and I just toured this vineyard and fell in love. The grounds are beautiful, and the wines were some of the best we had. Our guide was personable and very informative.

Every time I go back to this place I love it more and more. The place is beautiful, the wine is just the best I've ever had and the staff are just amazing. Without a doubt the best vineyard in Sonoma.
