A very nice vineyard. The Terroir Tasting was a great reflection of the quality cabernets that Nickel & Nickel offer. Our host was super friendly and did a great job explaining each wine. The wine and cheese complimented the wines perfectly. Overall a phenomenal tasting experience.

This was a wonderful experience. We loved the property and the history. The wine was so terrific. Ian was recommended to us as a guide and we were lucky enough to get him to tour us. He was exceptionally knowledgeable and even took the time before our arrival to research wines we might like based on our purchase from their sister property, Far Niente. Nickel and Nickel is a must do in Napa!

Nickel and Nickel is right off Highway 29. We had a private tasting on the back porch. Not only did we have 5 wines poured but also delicious cheese to go with the wines. Our host proceeded to offer us three additional pours of different vintages. It was a great experience overall and we ended up joining the Wine Club!!

For 80 dollars per person tasting, I wished we were able to keep a glass as a souvenir. Other places we paid 50 bucks or more gave out glasses per person for each booking. That’s 160 for two people. Good enough to buy a good bottle of some sort. So I am a little disappointed we didn’t get anything to keep since I also purchased a bottle there too!

One of the best private wine tastings I've been to. We were hosted by Ian Stout who was knowledgeable and interesting. It was particularly interesting to see the many different soil types of their various vintages and then to taste 4 different cabernets, each grown in a different part of the valley. There were also three different cheeses. Only drawback? Their wine is on the pricey side!

I arrived without a reservation and was given an appointment within 15 minutes. We were greeted by fantastic staff. We did the tour with 3 other people and Savannah was our tour guide. She was great. Upon the end of the tour we had several tastings of wine with cheese and it was fantastic. As a person who regularly drinks Nickel and Nickel; it was pretty fun to be there.

We are glad we found time to visit during this trip, we wanted to see the winery last year but ran out of time... The campus is very nice, I particularly enjoyed the old delivery car they had staged in between the tasting room and the production area. In regards to the wine, we tasted a fantastic Pinot Noir from their sister property Entourage...it was the best wine that we tasted all day!

Our experience was exceptional from start to finished. We were graciously greeted, our host gave an extremely informative tour of the grounds, cellars and it's roots. The room we had our tasting in was beautifully appointed. Nickel and Nickel is not to be missed. We especially loved that Nickel & Nickel cabs are single vineyard not blends. They're worth the price!
