Nelson Family Vineyards

Nelson Family Vineyards The key to making world class wines is to start with world class grapes. All our wines are estate grown in order to assure the highest quality grapes. We have the luxury of choosing only the best grapes from our top vineyards to produce the wines our family is so proud of. We sincerely believe in our motto that “Great wines are born in the vineyard.” Our goal is to gently guide our grapes into wines that show off the balance and high quality we strive to achieve in our vineyards. We offer a variety of fine wines that have been produced in ultra small batches with the tender love and care that can only be found at a family owned micro winery. We sincerely hope you enjoy the fruits of our labors.

We are located in Mendocino County, between Hopland and Ukiah, directly off Hwy 101.
