  • Stopped here as a part of a tour. Driver/tour guide made it clear there was a $15 tasting fee. I get it. However, as we arrived we were immediately taken away from the tasting room and up a slope outd...  more »

  • I hardly leave reviews, but this was an amazing experience. We ended up here through Platypus tours. Debbie was our guide at Nicholson. She provided us such am engaging time and involved every person in the tour. She gave us all nick names and provided such a great education, primarily about the geology of the area and also about the history of the winery. I would highly recommend.
  • 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 of the wines blew us away, we enjoyed our time here learning about the wines and the property. We were especially touched that the vineyard was still open even after the owners lost their house on the property.
  • I enjoyed the wine tasting and tour of the winery. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful . The only negative was the $40.00 tasting fee charged to my husband, as he does not drink wine. Had he known that he probably would have opted to remain on the tour bus.
  • Wonderful tour, fabulous wines! Lovely views. Go!
  • As always excellent wine and service Green and lush even after fire it's a gorgeous place!

Where to stay in Sonoma

Prices for accommodations in Sonoma are often high. The hotels on or near the town square offer an unbeatable location for experiencing the city's many cultural delights, but you'll pay extra for the convenience. Properties located farther out are more economical and quiet, and provide easy access to Sonoma's stunning countryside. If you are planning a longer holiday, consider booking a vacation rental that feels like a home away from home.
