Very u impressed when they had the reservation under the wrong name even though we had just come from Far Niente where they had the reservation correct. Things went downhill from there as we were not accommodated on the back porch as we had been told. Our host left a great deal to be desired as we felt we were being sold a used car rather than being welcomed into a friendly dialogue

Online scheduling of reservation was quick and easy. Greeted and served a glass of wine during a short wait for other guests to arrive. Ian gave an excellent tour - providing history of the property and was very knowledgeable about the wine-making process. It was harvest time and we loved the tour. The tasting was in a well appointed space and Ian kept it interesting and the group involved.

This was one of the wineries my husband and I absolutely needed to go to for our first trip to Napa Valley. It was such a cute property, our guide was wonderful and the wine, of course, was incredible. Such a lovely tasting with cheese and we even got to see some grapes going through harvest production. Excellent experience!

The private wine tasting was delightful from the moment we arrived to "Napa coffee" until our final glass of cabernet sauvignon. The opportunity to contract the various varietals with different cheeses enhanced our understanding and appreciation. We enjoyed our hostess Heather, who was personable and knowledgable. We would not miss an opportunity to visit Nickel & Nickel again!

Went for a private wine tasting. We arrived in the wrong place and accidently walked into the research building. The winemaker was very nice and escorted us to the farmhouse where we were supposed to be. From there Savannah was a wonderful host. The wine was superb and paired well with the provided cheese. Overall it was a relaxed and friendly event. I would highly recommend it.

We arrived early for our tasting and tour. The Staff appeared to be upset that we arrived early and did nothing to accomodate us. We offered to buy a bottle of wine while we waited and were told they could sell it to us but we couldn't open it. They did offer us a glass while we waited (over an hour) but then did not pour us the opening glass on the tour (while other tour guests sipped!)

I thought we would enjoy because the property seemed so authentic to the region and different than many that surround it. We're also Wine Club members with them. The tour was nothing special except we did enjoy the soil samples and seeing the machine sorting. Talked about the old barn that was rebuilt but they didn't even take us to see it. Tasting was in a basement and couldn't "revisit" a wine
