“Wonderful family owned small winery”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

Gorgeous setting far enough away from the coast so the morning fog does not cloud the sky. We paid $10 to taste seven different wines that were made at least in part with grapes grown on the property.

There is a beautiful large shade tree grove that you can sit under on a warm day and enjoy your samples. Many brought picnics and were clearly enjoying the wonderful property.

We spent some time with the owner and got a real feel for what running a winery was all about, and how much she loves the business. Everyone else we met was very friendly.

This place is out of the way, but I highly recommend making the trip and buying their wines.

“Pretty setting and very friendly tasting”
Reviewed 15 September 2008

Nicholson is a family operation with vineyards and an olive grove. I've visited during special events such as Corralitos Wine Trail and Passport weekend and have found the experience to be really enjoyable. The family gets involved and everyone is extremely warm. The wines are great, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel are among the varietals they are making. The winery is open by appointment only to groups of 6 or more. Visit them during one of the days they are open for a special event!
