Made a reservation for a tasting flight with some food items. The cheese and charcuterie board was great. We also really enjoyed the truffle fries. Crystal was our server and she was very personable and knowledgeable.

Amazing location if you don’t mind the drive through winding roads. Service was excellent. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Not snobbish and pretentious which can happen when you dine at expensive restaurants. We were comfortable not being dressed up but you can certainly do that here. The view to the vineyard during sunset is so romantic and not many people around due to COVID maybe or the fact that they just have plenty of outdoor space to sit people away from each other. Next time we will try staying overnight so I can drink the wine option with the meal. My husband took that option and let me sip a little bit. Fantastic selection. Will wait for a special occasion to justify splurging. We’ve been to French Laundry and I liked the food and service here better. We’ll be back.

We had made a reservation for wine tasting for 3 groups of 6 weeks prior, confirmed the reservation, and when we arrived they were not ready for our group. They apologized and provided us a complimentary glass of wine but it took them 30 minutes to seat our group which caused us to be late and miss our following wine reservation at a neighboring winery. Also, since we were seated late they were behind for other reservations so they rushed our tasting bringing out our new wine before we had even finished the previous one. If it wasn't for the quality of the wine and the food that we ordered I owuld be giving them a much lower rating.

This was the best experience we have had at Justin. Not that we were ever disappointed. But John, manager was awesome! Came to our table and asked how everything was. He was very personable. Mike, our server went out of his way to help us try to find a specific wine that you don’t serve. Just really nice! Thank you!

Justin is fabulous, for their excellence in choosing wines to pour, for their food that is clearly coming from an award winning kitchen, for their ambiance (hello, we’re practically in the vineyard), and for their dedicated service.

Coming from San Francisco and normally going to Napa, this was a pleasant surprise and by far exceeded our expectations. Excellent service, food, and wine (of course). Server was extremely knowledgeable and gave us wine tastings outside of the normal flight and all employees were extremely friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back to Justin soon!

This is such a beautiful setting. Pairing wine tasting with food is so smart, especially with the location of this property which is a bit of a drive from town. Staff was friendly and the food was good. The burger was juicy and the chocolate desert was perfect to end the day. It’s a visit I’d do again!

The waiter assumed I was not a wine drinker just because I did not choose their high end wine. Which I found was just ok, I think Justin's wine has dropped a lot in quality after they lost their winemaker to Halter Ranch. Overall for a much better wine I would recommend Denner or Law. In terms of food they were trying to compete again a Michelin star restaurant but just was not there. The presentation was pretty good but their flavors was ok and not amazing. I've been to several other Michelin Star places in SF and it just could not compete.

We only did wine tasting. Been a member at Justin for many years. Always enjoy stopping by and having a complimentary tasting. We are big red wine fans and really enjoy their Malbec, Cabernet, Isosceles and Isosceles Reserve.

Always a special treat to taste at the estate! Blessed by beautiful weather, we basked in the outdoor garden area enjoying delicious wine paired with chocolate creations that were works of art! Combined with impeccable and knowledgeable service it made our final tasting of the day by far our finest!
