On a five winery tour, this was by far the standout. The owner was extremely kind and interesting and our tour guide was fantastic. The wine was just as good as the rest of the experience. Very few wineries that I would want to go...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!

I suggest doing the more expensive tasting and getting the two extra glasses of wine and enjoying the tasting outside on the patio. Just do it - you won't regret it. That's what we did, or at least half of us did. And while none...More

We booked on the Platypus wine tour (reviewed separately), where we visited four locations - and the Nicholson Ranch was the high point, both in terms of the wines we tasted, the commentary from our host (Mike) and the tour of the vineyard and facilities.
