Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens
For the daily food creations, Executive Chef Justin Wangler finds inspiration from the sights, smells, and tastes of our 2 ½ acre culinary sensory gardens. A veritable cornucopia of beauty and flavor designed by celebrated Farmer Tucker Taylor, our gardens are a core component of our commitment to food and wine education.
This exceptional tasting pair’s limited-production wines with original bites. We offer our Reserve Wine & Food Pairing daily from 10:00am-3:30pm, reservations recommended. Price: $55 plus tax (25% discount for K-J Wine Club Members).

Such a great experience! The wine and food pairing was lovely for our anniversary. Incredibly good food and wine, plus the staff is helpful and polite. Clean place in a nice location. Will for sure be back again!
It was nice to experience it during off season...but, will definitely go back during spring or summer when the grapevines are in bloom...
I took my mother for her birthday and we were running about 10minutes late so we called and they were very accommodating. We got in and immediately received a glass of Chardonnay as we waited.
Chef Matthew is knowledgeable and personable. He made the wine and food pairing amazing as always.
Amazing. My date is vegan and I choose not to eat beef. I called ahead and they didn’t even flinch. Food was phenomenal — the real “eat fresh”.
I made reservations for 4 but 2 guests cancelled late due to illness. While waiting to be seated we noticed a young couple at the tasting bar and asked them to join us for the wine & food pairing. They accepted and it was fun. We learned they were here on vacation from southern california and had been married for 4 months. The food was exceptional and paired with Kendall Jacksons very best. I look forward to doing this again soon.
We received wonderful customer service and a good and wine pairing that absolutely fantastic! What a wonderful was to celebrate the holidays.
Definitly a must do! Extremely good service and personal touch. Great food and wine pairing. A beautiful venue for all events. Highly suggest joinging the KJ wine club. Looking forward to my next visit to KJ>
First time visiting winery. The hall where we had dinner was a bit too large and empty, but the wines and foods were almost perfect. :)
Great well prepared and presented food. Dining area is pleasant with a good view of the kitchen.
Staff were friendly and well prepared.
The food and wine pairing were outstanding. The chef prepared delicious and sophisticated meals that were matched with excellent wines.
This is just a really fun food and wine pairing experience featuring produce from the estate and quality wines you wouldn't normally get to taste except in the tasting room. Great for locals and tourists alike.
Two of the three non-dessert dishes were mushroom heavy and none of the dishes seemed to be paired specifically to match notes in the wines.
Olivia and James and the kitchen team are amazing-the setting and the food beyond compare a true locavore experience.
Loved tasting wines that are not available in a restaurant or wine shop. Frank, our host, was gracious and very knowledgeable. Tasting Room and grounds were gorgeous. Love the holiday decor and fireplace.
Went to KJ with visiting relatives and everyone enjoyed it start to finish. Great wine, great service, great food, and great setting.
We have never been disappointed in the food and wine pairing. The food is always a delightful, flavorful surprise. The server very knowledgeable and more than ready to answer any questions.
Nice food, nicewine BUT very disorganized—was supposed to be a wine and food PAIRING, wine was poured but food not served for 20 minutes, by then the wine was gone and not repoured. This happened for 5 courses. Also the menus weee not what was served. Very disappointing
I am a wine club member at KJ. The wine and food pairings are a fun way to try new foods. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
The food was so much more than we expected . Presentation was great, portions were good, wait staff was attentive and sweet.
Excellent!!! Chef came out to speak with us & go over what we were tasting & the wine paired with it. Excellent customer service from all of the staff
The food was part of a wine and food pairing menu. It was truly fabulous. The food was amazing and
the staff could not have been nicer or more professional. The executive chief extremely personable and was very informative about each course. A great experience.
Food and wine pairing is second to none. Everyone at KJ is exceptional.
This was an amazing wine tasting experience! The wine is paired and served with a delicious selection of chef-inspired small plates, yet very filling. They went over the top to please you! Kayla and Chef Matthew were the best!!!!!!
Amazing experience! Wonderful staff, incredible food and lovely views! The wine alone is worth the drive, but adding this food experience pushes it over the top! Can't wait to bring family and friends!
The whole experience was perfect!! Food and wine were great, perfect sized portions. Worth every dollar!
The food was excellent chef Mathew has the best personality and the staff is so friendly
Het was geweldig, heerlijke wijn, heerlijk eten , goede befiening inbeennperfecte omgeving!!
Wonderful food, wine and service. Our server Savannah was very knowledgeable about everything. Absolutely a wonderful experience.
Fantastic wine, food and service! Great experience!
Great quiet Tuesday to have a fantastic food and wine pairing. Just light enough for a small lunch. Typically, I’m not much into chardonnay but they make a particularly nice one. Also like the fact that many vegetables served are grown on the property. Interior design leaves something to be desired but grounds are excellent
Chef matthew is amazing...and the food and wine don’t suck either!!! Love this experience.
Superior wine pairing, some of the best food I have ever had. Great picks on matching the wines. We will be back!!!
Exquisite experience. Second time this month, never disappoints. Best bang for the buck. Honestly don’t know how this isn’t more hyped than St Francis and other pricier wineries.
We come to Wine Country every few years, and make a point of stopping each time at Kendall Jackson for the food and wine pairing. A perfect way to spend an afternoon!
Enjoyed the wine and food pairing menu. Everything was superb. Recommend for a special occasion.
Gardens are gorgeous but a few more potted plants in the dining area would be appreciated.
I’ve been here few times now it makes me want to go back again. Menu often changes and vegetables are from their own garden. They use very specific meat that you don’t buy daily bases, maybe not even once a year, this is the place to enjoy those. This time we had duck and Aka-gyu, both are fantastic!! Also calamari salad with chorizo was perfect match with Rose.
Plates are small, so if you are big eater, you will not get satisfied volume wise. But they can serve some excellent bread as well.
You will not regret. If you see negative review, that’s so wrong!!
Fabulous wine paring get together. I have been several times and it continues to amaze me.
WE DID THE WINE FOOD PARING. THE WINES WERE DELICIOUS. THE FOOD WAS TASTY. THE AMBIANCE WAS GREAT. WE SAT OUTDOORS IN THE GARDENS ON A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY. THE SERVER WAS VERY PLEASANT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE.
