We had a very thorough tour through the property, in the caves and in two pretty cool tasting spots down in the cave. I couldn't tell at first if our guide was disinterested or unamused by our group, but he finally loosened up and really grew on me. He really shared a lot of cool information about how NR makes...

I visited this vineyard in December with a group of friends from Ireland and South Africa. One of the workers refused to take my valid irish driving license as ID claiming it was a piece of paper that he couldn't accept. I also proceeded to ask him would he accept my scanned passport to which he said no. It was... More

We were welcomed by Raymond, selected our tastings package, & from that point on....we just "clicked". Raymond was very pleasant, informative, funny, I could go on. It was... More

Wonderful property for wine tasting with a lot of beautiful spots to enjoy the scenery. Tastings are $30 each, but the wine is good and the staff are very nice.

Excellent and absolutely beautiful. The wine was delicious, really appreciate their micro concept and their organic, dry farming methods. Worth the stop when in Sonoma!

This was our final stop on a winery tour done by Green Dreams in Sonoma. After a wonderful day of touring around and learning about the local wines, we were delighted to drive up to the breathtaking Nicholson Ranch. Unfortunately this was where the delight ended. Our host in the tasting room was a rude, pretentious know-it-all. I did not... More

We visited Nicholson Ranch as our first stop on a day tour of Sonoma and Napa. We tasted two Chardonnays and two Pinot Noir . The wine was excellent and the employees friendly and knowledgeable. No pressure to buy but we ended up joining their wine club. The grounds were beautiful ! It was a very positive experience.
