For over 60 years the Nelson family has been farming vineyards and attracting people every year to the beautiful region of Hopland. It is truly a family affair as each generation has put in their time and energy, infusing this ranch with their own flair. Nelson Family Vineyards has been home to patriarch Greg Nelson since he was 5 years old, and together with his sons Tyler and Chris have molded it to what it is today. Chris is the winemaker, and Tyler is the farmer and coordinator for special projects such as the ranch organically certified, and Fish Friendly Farming practices.
Known for growing excellent grapes since the 1970’s, Greg, Tyler and Chris were inspired by the idea of what their grapes and a little imagination could do for them. It all started with Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel and since then expanded to include, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Viognier, Chardonnay, and Orange Muscat.
