Great tour with an elegant wine tasting! The area is beautiful and situated next to Opus One with great views which began with a Chardonnay welcome. On this visit we saw the grounds, received soil education, and view the barrel aging room. The wine tasting was elegant and very accommodating with food allergies for my fiance and two friends by serving gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan options.

You cannot find a better wine tour and tasting in Napa Valley. I've been fortunate enough to enough the Nickel & Nickel experience 3 times and each tour has been incredibly educational, very easy going, and entertaining. Whether you are a cork dork or a casual wine drinker, the N&N tour and tasting approach will leave you with a greater appreciation and knowledge of the wine you drink!

Cathy did a great job. Everything was set up perfectly. Was easily the most enjoyable winery we visited that day. My only complaint is that you are already sending me emails every single day and I do not need emails every day from N&N. Combined with all of the other advertiser emails I get bombarded with daily....its just too much. Once a month is adequate....not every day. Tks.

The tasting in the barn was a highlight of our day in the Napa Valley. Our wine guide was very well versed in not only the wines we tasted but the history of the valley, as well. It is hard to go wrong with anything produced by Nickel and Nickel. All wines tasted represented the N & N wine brand very well. I look froward to the next event at the winery.

Lovely service, great wine, nice tour, but for $75 a pop, it really isn't a good value for the money spent. They should reduce the price or waive the fee with a purchase even if it means busting 3 bottles. On the one hand, I highly recommend a visit here, but I can't justify the price tag. There are better options in Napa for less coin.

The entire experience was excellent. Most wine tastings are conducted standing at a counter - alongside many others - making it feel like a bar. Here you are greeted in the foyer with a glass of wine, gather in the living room before sitting down with a private tasting host. It was refined and casual elegant. So I chose to join the wine club - and it’s the only one I belong to. Thanks to Kathy.
