We started our wine touring day at Nichol based on friends recommendations and it did not disappoint. In fact, it set the bar very high for the rest of the day - Matt was absolutely lovely, funny and knowledgeable, and answered all of our nerdy...More

This winery is not large or flashy. There is no restaurant on site. However it does deliver quality wines that are luscious and full of depth and body. Many fans have returned to this classic year and year again. The original owner learned his craft...More

Okay, so this place is cute and rustic as others have said, but I feel they fail in the wine department. Their pinot gris is nice, and I've had it before. We went there, because I thought this meant their other wines would be just...More

Quite rustic. Nice views from the deck. An unusual experience, similar to other reviewers’ comments, below. We tasted Cab Franc and Syrah and left a $3 tasting fee.

We visited this location during a wine tour. The lady at the tasting room seemed uninterested and not engaged. The wine didn't impress and we walked out of this location empty handed
