The view at Lynmar Estates is beautiful. Walking into the tasting room you pass a colorful garden and beautifully manicured lawn. The host was very personable with a great sense of humor to boot. The wine was tasty we bought a great chardonnay. Stepping out back there was the best view of the vineyard. We were allowed to walk through the vineyard on our own and take pictures.
Overall it was an unforgettable experience. I would definitely recommend them.

Our favorite "find" in Sonoma
Lynmar's Picnic Pairing was recommended to us by the folks at Chalk Hill (because we weren't able to schedule a pairing there)...lucky for us! The wine was incredible, the fresh food pairing was fantastic, everyone was very friendly and the views were spectacular. Next time in Sonoma...we will schedule our day around a stop at Lynmar.

We went for Father's Day and were quite pleased with this decision. Beautiful day, great food, and the garden surroundings unsurpassed.

This meal was at a winery, not a restaurant, in Sonoma. To their credit, the wines were excellent, and they were paired well with picnic-style food served in a comfortable setting.

The setting and concept are
The setting and concept are amazing. The service was a little awkward and our salad came in a plastic to go container, which was odd since we had real plates and silverware. The sandwich was incredible - really well done.
The gardens are spectacular, particularly in the height of summer. I would highly recommend it for a place to bring out of town guests or to just enjoy a beautiful afternoon.

Food and wine in paradise
Lynmar Winery is not a restaurant but they do put on an excellent lunch as part of a wine and food pairing experience. Their Pinot's are second to none (especially if you like the full-bodied variety) and the food was fresh, natural and excellent. The service was attentive but not hovering and the atmosphere - sitting outside on their patio surrounded by their vineyards - is a true California wine country experience. I highly recommend this for groups or special occasions.

The gardens, the flowers, the superb wines with the delicious food, the friendly service, the beauty of the setting -- all made for a birthday celebration we will never forget.

Picnic Pairing at Lynmar
I have done the picnic pairing at Lynmar three times, and it just gets better. The setting could not be more beautiful...views over the hills and vineyards. The food is creative and goes well with the wine (except for the salad dressing, which is too tart). Love the popcorn with amaranth and other herbs. The cookies are delicious. Everything is locally grown. The wines are lovely....a new oak-free chardonnay and a fruity and smooth pinot noir.

Wonderful lunch !
It sounded expensive at first but we decided to splurge for my birthday. After lunch we decided it was well worth it. The wine, the service, the venue and the food were all spectacular. Definitely worth it.

wine country get away lunch
Excellent food with fresh ingredients from the winery 's garden. Home-made gluten-free wrap was even better than the standard wrap. The view is gorgeous. The wine is excellent.

We were pleasantly surprised with the upgrade from a box lunch to a full table setting. We still want to know where the placemats are from. The garden is exquisite.

The highlight of our trip was visiting Lynmar Estates. We absolutely loved the food and the beautiful gardens.

Wine tasting lunch
We had a wine tasting lunch at Lynmar and it was just delightful. Their garden is beautiful and the wines were excellent. Highly recommend.

This was a stellar experience - we even joined the wine club! Great suggestion Ralph de Amicis of Amicis Winery Tours who arranged our lunch at the winery tasting room. He told us we would love it and he was certainly right. The food was excellent and the vegetables come right from the property in view. Super cool.

My husband and I took part in the "Picnic Pairing" at Lynmar Estate. We were interested in trying several of their wines, rather than the two being served. Our hostess was very accommodating, and provided us with a great tasting of Lynmar wines while we enjoyed our delicious lunch. The setting was lovely, and our table provided a great view of the beautiful gardens. We enjoyed the wines very much, and even joined their wine club. This is a definite "must do" if you are in the area!

A very civilized picnic, no packing. The view was divine. We already knew the wine was wonderful so the big surprise was the food.

Sunday visit to Lynmar
We have made wine paring a priority on this year’s trip to the RRV area. Lynmar tasting room is a modern facility that is very well landscaped. There are several outside seating areas which allow for wine tasting while enjoying the countryside view. The staff was very friendly and the service was prompt. The wine paring was three courses with two wines, but there was ample food for a hearty lunch. Lynmar has some very good Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs and its well worth the time to visit this tasting room.

Fabulous Wine Pairing Picnic Lunch
This was not your ordinary lunch. It consists of great starter, veggies and a wrap coupled with a glass of the Lynmar Chard and Pinot. It's pricey ($45 each) but it's outside in an incredibly beautiful setting at the Lynmar winery with panoramic views. The food was fantastic, the wine above average.

It's always a pleasure to visit Lynmar. Allow yourself time to take in the beauty of this place. It's special and a real gem.

Not to miss!
Not to miss if you're in wine country! The most spectacular views and amazing lunch. Would recommend this over and over again!

Truly one of the most pleasant dining experiences we've ever had. Loved the grounds (especially the gardens). Friendly, informative and attentive service (yet laid back). Personal explanation in preparation of our lunch meal by the chef - a very nice touch. Wines and food were all superb - loved the shortbread cookies. Even the fireplace is well worth noting for its uniqueness. We cannot wait to come back to this gem of a place!
