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 customer service is excellent and environment is very comfortable. Sherrilynn provided me with a fantastic experience, and now I am part of the family Wine Club and I suspect after you experience Nelson... More

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.

This is a very pleasant family owned ranch and vineyard. The setting is lovely in the country with a nice tasting room with outside patio seating. The staff person working the day we were there was very knowledgeable about the wine and local area. It is a place we will visit again.

We really enjoyed tasting all of the different wines. We ended up buying a whole entire case. They shipped it to our house for us so we didn't have to pack it in our luggage. Learning about the family and how they acquired the land was really interesting. This is a quick little stop off the highway and worth trying.... More

Great tasting wine and very friendly. There is so much I don't know about wine. Yet, I still felt comfortable asking questions. Sherrilynn was friendly and answered our many questions. I was so impressed with thw wine that I signed up for the wine club. Can't wait for first shipment in April!
