This was such a fun tour, the wine was AMAZING and the grounds/winery is stunning!!! After learning the history on the original owners and winemaker, we toured the various structures and then had the best tasting. Don't miss out on this place!

As a chef and culinary/wine educator I’ve visited over 475 Sonoma/Napa county wineries and only sign up for “tours” when hosting “out of towners”. I would suggest this visit to those who have some degree of wine knowledge and are looking for a bit deeper experience. Our guide Ian was truly engaging, informative, shared a few new tidbits and we didn’t feel as if he had memorized a script.

Rustic technology laden wine making operation focused on single vineyard production. This all comes together to create a unique tour experience from the farm house with horses paying homage to Napa's history to the solar powered facilities. The wines are excellent with very distinct identities due to single vineyard production with a generous sampling ensure finding one that pleasures.

Our terroir tasting experience at Nickel and Nickel was very informative and of course delicious. We tasted 8 single vineyard samples from 2014 paired with meat and cheeses. Our host, Heather, did a great job explaining the subtle differences between the vineyard soils and the result on the finished wines. A must do at the winery. Reservations required.

As club members, we have been so pleased with our wine deliveries and plan to continue with our membership for some time. The wines shared during our visits have been excellent. We are planning our next visit already. Thank you so very much Carrina!

Total waste of $480 your fee. Escort went through the tour but with no enthusiasm. Really expected more from such a great winery. And exquisite wines. I have been a fan for many years and keep cases in hand at my home. My little group of six bought four bottles. After the tour. Sorry this is not a better review but my money was wasted. You should reimburse me. Douglas Artusio 770 329-80

Personalized invites on the tasting table, very nice touch. Price of the tasting / tour very high. It was refunded with the purchase. If you love Nickel & Nickel you will enjoy it.

The tour was interesting as we learned about their facility and vineyards and had a great time being guided through our tasting with Heather. We will certainly be revisiting with friends and family.

Even learned what a cooper is and how each has a slight impact on the final product based on how their barrel was built. Had an amazing hostess.
