The winery grounds were very lovely and I could imagine it is gorgeous when the vines are blooming. Looks like they have nice events in the spring/summer so check it out... More

Enjoyed a very nice visit and some delicious estate wines. Nice grounds. Looking forward to the opportunity to return and experience more. It was fun to see donkeys grazing in the vineyards.

This winery is so cute and wonderful. The service is great and they offer a great value. We joined the wine club while we were there as well and we love our wine shipments- I highly recommend!

Driving through Mendocino Wine Country is always a treat, but stopping in at Nelson Family Vineyards made it that much sweeter! Since my husband's family name is Nelson - no relation that we know of - we've been wanting to check out this winery for a tasting, and finally jumped at the chance while driving through Ukiah. Sherrilynn did an... More

If you're looking for a great even join Nelson Family Vineyards for their Barn Blending event. We only happened to stumble upon this vineyard a couple weeks before and were charmed by their friendliness and more importantly tasty wines. If you're in the area definitely stop by!

Tyler Nelson, a good friend from school, was the draw for us to stop in real quick for a hug. He wasn't available, but Sherrilyn was more than happy to walk us through a delightful tasting experience in his absence! It was cozy, inviting, and the grounds are gorgeous! I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of wines... More

GoodNelson family vineyards is a great stop. Beautiful location for warm weather events. Lots of trees and shade and a large lawn area that can be set up with tables or just on the lawn with your blankets. Had a lovely Nelson Pinot Noir - would recommend. The wines are good, the service friendly, a restful stop off 101.

The grounds are beautiful and the wine is excellent. Having done wine tasting at other vineyards in the area this was by far the very best experience. Sherrilyn with her warm personality was so hospitable and knowledgeable that I came away feeling happy, relaxed and a little smarter!

We were driving by and had to stop in. This is a wonderful location with an excellent facility. We tasted the Wine and immediately joined the Club. Sherrilyn was incredibly helpful in getting us signed up and in making our selection. When we get back to this area, we will certainly stop by again. The wine will make the perfect... More
