Tyler Nelson, a good friend from school, was the draw for us to stop in real quick for a hug. He wasn't available, but Sherrilyn was more than happy to walk us through a delightful tasting experience in his absence! It was cozy, inviting, and the grounds are gorgeous! I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of wines... More

GoodNelson family vineyards is a great stop. Beautiful location for warm weather events. Lots of trees and shade and a large lawn area that can be set up with tables or just on the lawn with your blankets. Had a lovely Nelson Pinot Noir - would recommend. The wines are good, the service friendly, a restful stop off 101.

The grounds are beautiful and the wine is excellent. Having done wine tasting at other vineyards in the area this was by far the very best experience. Sherrilyn with her warm personality was so hospitable and knowledgeable that I came away feeling happy, relaxed and a little smarter!

I visited Nelson Family Vineyards on June 18, 2016 and had a lovely experience! The tasting room is a small, picturesque room which provides a more intimate, personalized tasting venue and the tasting manager (Sherri?) was very informative, knowledgeable and she made several good recommendations. I sampled the rose, pinot noir, a zinfandel, several cabernet sauvignons, the Barn Blend and... More

My husband and I picked this vinyard to stop by on a whim for our first wine tasting experience. We had a blast! The lovely Sherrilyn was so knowledgeable about the wines and definitely proved a fun, friendly guide through the cabernets and moscats on the tasting list. We were impressed with the beautiful grounds and the classy, warm reception... More

The Nelson Family Vineyards is set in a beautiful location, with an excellent selection of my favorite, Red Wines, but very nice White wines as well. The customer service is excellent and environment is very comfortable.

This is a quiet spot just off Highway 101, perfect for a walk in a redwood grove or a glass of wine on the patio. The summer concert series is a big draw for the community.
