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

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.

Visited this winery on Monday with my husband, brother, and sister in law. We booked the 4pm tour and were the only ones there, so it was an intimate experience with tons of wine making knowledge and even a little etiquette as well. Debbie was our tour guide and was amazing. Debbie was so kind, knowledgeable, personable, and fun. She... More

Deepak Gulrajani is a wonderful host & his wines are the best! He is very personable & knowledgable. No pressure trying to sell you a bottle of wine. Don't miss visiting Nicholaon Ranch Winery!!! It's a scenic location.

On our third day in the wine country we opted for a tour with Platypus. It was essentially a private tour as there were only the four of us. After a discussion with the guide, we pretty much decided to let him run the show. This was our second stop, and where we ended up eating (tour provided) after the... More
