This was the first stop on our Napa Valley tour and it was a fantastic introduction to the day ahead. We started our tasting after a lovely introduction from our hosts explaining how last years fires came so near to their land. We were given...More

Chris was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and personable. It was clear there was a lot of pride in their wine techniques. The wine here is organic and they don’t use irrigation which is a nice change compared to other wineries. The cave...More

This was our 2nd visit to Nicholson Ranch Winery. We love this winery! Good wines, great background on the wines and beautiful scenery! The fires did touch parts of Nicholson Ranch and you can see the “scars” on the buildings. Glad we could support them!
