Wow...times have changed.
This used to be one of my favorite wineries to visit, now its not even worth thinking about. the $25 dollar fee to simply enter the property is ridiculous. Save your money for somewhere with a less pompous attitude and a better wine selection.
This winery is one of the best. It's in a great location, it's good for groups, has plenty for things to see, the wine is fantastic, and you get to keep your glass. I highly recomend N-C.
A must-stop for tasting.
I love this place. The grounds and buildings are spectacular. Plus, the Coppola movie stuff is almost worth the trip by itself. To taste here, you do have to pay, but you get to keep a really nice wine glass -- and they give you a brand-new one to take home, all wrapped and ready to go. The wines are top-notch and not all that pricey.
