Food pairings were excellent! They were larger than expected, 2-3 bites each, and satiating. Service was great! We loved Anne’s expressiveness and passion when she spoke of the wine. VJ had a wonderful sense of humor and everyone’s goal was to make sure we had a good time.

We’ve been here at least six times and always love to bring new guests. The food and wine pairings are exceptional. The chef comes out and explains each dish and how it peers with the wine. We will be back!

I had friends visiting from London and Seattle. The chef (John) was incredible and so was the food and wine. This is a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend booking the food & wine pairing for someone much better than the usual.

It was a fantastic food and wine pairing. Everyone is great there and treats you like family. The wine is amazing and the food so perfectly pairs with each dish. I love the Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon the best. What I found amazing is how much I enjoyed a wine I normally do not like, Chardonnay, with the Shrimp & Grits bite that was served with it. It changed my perspective on wine and the importance of pairing well.

We were being rushed out for some birthday party that wasn’t even there yet and as a result a friend of mine wasn’t feeling very well. As a long time patron that was quite a disappointing experience. Other than that, chef john and his work was amazing as always.

The wine and food pairings were great. The winery is unpretentious and you don't get any of those outrageous claims of "smells like" and so on. The pours were very generous and there are several exceptional and unusual wines. Explanations of the winemaking included, but again, straightforward and actually educational. Living in the area, I have been to A LOT of wineries. This place ranks high up there for quality and for a laid-back and informative presentation.

The idea is really quite good and well executed. It is a series of bites (or 2x bites) paired with wines intended to play well. All the bites were greats and a couple really excelled in harmonizing perfectly with their intended partner wine. A little pricey for the quantity of food which I'd describe as a light lunch at best (though no out of line given the current Napa Sonoma tasting charge). It is a very approachable experience particularly if you're not a hard core taster.
