    Had a lovely experience at St Francis' food and wine pairing. As a concierge; I like to experience first hand what we are recommending to guests. I am pleased to announce this was a perfectly presented pairing. From the knowledgeable presenters Renee and Josh, to the Chef's attention to detail. Truly a worthwhile experience. Look forward to returning seasonally to experience the different offerings.

    I went to St. Francis with three foodie friends and LOVED the food and wine pairing. The host was descriptive, patient and welcoming. The food was impeccable - as was the wine pairing. I highly recommend this event for 4 - 8 person groups. However, there was a single at our tasting and it was just as much fun.

    Even with the recent change in Executive Chefs, St Francis remains a culinary (& wine) experience not to be missed! The food, wine pairings, knowledgeable staff - - and end of meal visit from the Chef - - make for a wonderful experience all the way around. We never hesitate to take our out of town guests to perhaps the best wine & food experiences to be found in Napa/Sonoma...

    St. Francis is a gem just a short drive outside Santa Rosa. Spectacular scenery paired with great food and wonderful wines. We had visited 2 other vineyards on our trip - each very different from the others. By far, St. Francis was the most sophisticated. Their beautiful shop/tasting room was charming to spend a little time before or after our lunch. When we looked at the menu before hand we thought we would select one entrée. We were pleasantly surprised that we had samplings of all three with each paired to a wine and one even had two wines as the staff could not decide between the two. Each entree was well presented and delicious. It seemed a little pricey at first but was definitely worth it!

    In case you've had this wonderful dining experience and were afraid it would never be the same after the departure of chef who put it on the map, fear no more. It is every bit as good as ever under the new chef. The big shoes have been filled very competently. Every dish was amazingly creative and delicious, and each food/wine pairing was perfect. We'll be back every time they change the menu.

    The wine and good tasting was the highlight of our trip to the wine country. We bought one of the red wines to ship home but kicked ourselves the rest of the day for not buying one of the two Chardonnays that were presented--one with salmon and one with salad. We can see why St. Francis is rated No. 1 for this type of experience and we would definitely come back.

    $50 may seem like a lot for a wine pairing. But, with 6 healthy pours of St. Francis wine matched perfectly with what the restaurant calls 5 courses of "small plates" (actually, decent sized-portions of amazing food), it's an amazing deal. Wonderful setting with view of gardens/vineyard/mountains. Very friendly and informative service. This is our second visit and we'll be back.

    We treated guests from England to the 2:00 wine and food tasting and it was the hit of their visit. Excellent 5 course small food plates with wine that truly enhanced the dish. We deliberately did not have lunch that day and the food was sufficient that we had a simple meal that evening. We will keep this on our "travel itinerary" for guests who join us in the wine country.

    We've enjoyed excellent food and wine pairings before, but never one more thoughtful or more attuned to bringing out the range of tastes in food and wine equally. Since the menu changes on a rolling basis according to the wines that become available (a new course is rotated in roughly once each week) there's not much to be gained from singling out dishes or wines that we enjoyed today (9/1/14): just believe all the raves about the great tastes and knowledgeable staff and make this a destination if you're in range.

    The food was paired superbly with the wine served. All the dishes were delicious, but a few of the proteins seemed a tiny bit overcooked. The salmon was a bit dry, and so was the beef and duck. The flavors of all the dishes were amazing and we think the flavors of the food paired with the wines better than ever.

    We went for a lunch wine pairing and the food was incredible, the wines were perfectly paired and varied to give us a sample of all that the vineyard had to offer. The winery itself is in a beautiful setting as well. I would highly recommend the lunch/wine pairing but you will need to plan many months in advance as the reservation is difficult to get! You sit at a group table with about 16 people so space is limited! It is a great deal as well, $50 for the lunch with pairings! A steal in my opinion! The staff were very friendly and accomodating and provided a wealth of knowledge on the vineyard and wine in general. Please go if you are in the Sonoma/Napa area!! It will be the highlight of your trip!
