Concierge.com's insider take:

Nickel & Nickel is one of the Napa Valley's top cabernet producers. It also happens to be one of the most gentil and best-looking wineries along Highway 29. The restored farmstead includes two 1920s barns, an 18th-century barn brought piece by piece from New Hampshire, and an 1884 farmhouse with a wraparound porch, all surrounded by white fencing. After a quick tour of the grounds and production areas, guests gather in one of the farmhouse's Victorian-era parlors to taste the wine. The thing that's special here is the terroir: All of the wines are made with single-vineyard, single-varietal grapes. Each is produced by the same winemaker, using the same processes and techniques; the only thing that varies is the ground in which the grapes grow. The composition of the soil in Napa changes from district to district; here you can learn firsthand how these variations affect the outcome of the wine. Expect to sample four different cabernets, each from the same year but from different vineyards. Food-friendly, rich in fruit, and not overly tannic, these wines are balanced and elegant—well worth the hefty $40 tasting fee. Appointment required.

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 3 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 4 pm.
