Is Napa Valley in your future? We hope you’ll add Nickel & Nickel to your itinerary. Here’s what you need to know about your visit:
With all the wonderful weather we’ve been enjoying, the high season seems to have already begun this year. We highly recommend early planning for all your Napa Valley destinations, from lodging to winery visits and dining.
Like many wineries, Nickel & Nickel is by appointment only, and we recommend booking your appointment as soon as your plans solidify. As the season gets underway, we often schedule visits 6 weeks out and holiday weekends fill quickly.
Schedule Your Visit
So you’ve got some dates in mind? Check out our visit page for information on tours and tastings at Nickel & Nickel. From there, you can book your appointment online at the “Make a Reservation” link, or give us a call at (707) 967-9600 and we’ll set you up!
(Special note: Wine club members’ tasting fees are waived, up to a party of four.)
Get Ready to Enjoy a Single-Vineyard Experience!
On your Nickel & Nickel visit, you’ll learn about our dedication to single-vineyard wines and how that touches everything we do, from our hospitality in the Sullenger House to the enology lab in the 18th-century Gleason Barn to the fermentation barns. Next, you’ll taste through a selection of our Napa Valley single-vineyard Cabernets—a true tour of Napa Valley geography and geology!
We look forward to greeting you soon at the winery. Another way to connect with us is through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Just a few miles south of us on Highway 29 is the small town of Yountville. Filled with world class restaurants, casual eateries and cafes, boutique hotels and bed-and-breakfasts, the place makes us locals wish we were on vacation. We have the pleasure of working with several incredible Yountville restaurants, and our State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is grown right outside town.
If you are in Napa Valley this weekend be sure to get to Taste of Yountville—an annual event that draws hundreds to this food, wine and art-centered celebration. The event begins this afternoon with an art show reception and the main event is on Saturday. To learn more, visit the Taste of Yountville website.
