We stopped at Nelson Family vineyards while driving south to Napa. They have a scenic area outside with a small grouping of redwoods that overlooks their vineyard. Their wine list spans sparkling brut to cabs, offering something for everyone.

Very beautiful and comfortable place to visit and taste some great wines. The workers are friendly and knowledgeable. It's kid friendly if you really want to share this piece of heaven with your little buddy.

This winery is not only beautiful, but the wines are scrumptious. . The gift shop has wonderful local products from the winery. Don't forget to store at the strawberry shack as you pull in. Yum..
