    I was on a "girls weekend" and we found this gem. Much like the Napa I remember (reasonable tasting fee which is waived with the purchase of their delicious wine!) The grounds are fabulous. We had a p...  more »

    I was looking for white wines and their website listed 3, some unique to napa, so I drove all the way up the hill to find the tasting room guy (who proudly stated he is the only employee who is not a member of the family) pouring an average sparkling wine and three reds for a $20 tasting fee. When I asked if he had any whites to pour he made some lame excuses and refused to open any white wines. This guy was a horrible representative of Napa and I was insulted by his banter. I will never patronize this winery or buy these wines.

    We have been going to Nichelini for more than 30 years and have watched the winery go through generational and wine maker changes. The family has worked very hard to maintain the heritage and quality of the winery. The wine is excellent plus and the winery is very cozy and welcoming. Taking a picnic lunch is a favorite of my wife and I and our out of state family visitors.

    I love this spot! Such a perfect place to bring a large group or a handful of friends. The outdoor area is a perfect place to spend an afternoon drinking wine and enjoying a picnic.

    Amazing. We loved every moment of the tour of this small family vineyard. Can only recommend!

    Nichelini is my favorite place to bring friends and family visiting from out of town. The wine is beyond delicious, and the grounds are beautiful, fun, and relaxing. I love the history and authenticity of this place, and the family members that run the winery are incredibly personable and knowledgeable. Every time I visit, I learn something new!

Where to stay in St. Helena

Because St. Helena is nestled in upscale wine country, most people who visit have no intention of roughing it. As such, the city sports a number of luxurious hotels. Several boast restaurants, hot tubs, and swimming pools; however, keep in mind that those with extensive grounds tend to be farther away from the main street. Budget-conscious travelers can find some more basic motels (looking farther out of town is a good way to save a few dollars). However, those staying on the outskirts should be aware that parking--particularly during high season--can be challenging in the city.
