Everything was great as always. Unfortunately there was a group of women downstairs who were extremely loud and obnoxious.

Took my parents and uncles for Grandparents Day. It was a lovely experience for everyone. It was hot, but they had a fan next to our table and we were comfortable in total shade. The food and wine was delicious and our server and the wine maker were great.

This winery offers beautiful views, outstanding wines and delicious food. The
Kicking Bee Flatbread was our table favorite, along with the Shadowbrook Chardonnay 2019 and the Shadowbrook Rose 2019. Pairing the Rose with their strawberry sorbet (thanks to our wonderful waiter) was the perfect dessert on a hot day!

Another outstanding experience at Shadowbrook. We combined a few tastings with a few bottles of wine and the two pizza options. The combination of honey and Gorgonzola on the pepperoni flat bread was a party in your mouth. Add Christian as our server and you have the perfect way to end the week.
Shadowbrook never disappoints.

It was wonderful. Perfect evening, great service, beautiful scenery, delicious wine and appetizers. Felt like I had gotten out of town. What a gem of a place right here in Walnut Creek.
And the staff went above and beyond and located a birthday bracelet that had been accidentally thrown away in the trash with the wrapping paper. We didn’t realize it until we got home. It was after hours but the staff contacted us and were able to find the bracelet.

Third visit in one month. Love the folks who work here. Just wish for a wee bit of change in the menu so that my weekly visits are not the same thing to eat. But what there is... is yummy. I am coming again this Sunday. I guess this is my new home :)

We really enjoyed our visit! The food was amazing! The wine was outstanding! The only thing that kept me from making this a 5 star review was the value. It is definitely on the high end. But all worth it.

We had a party of 8 people and we were seated on the upper outdoor patio deck with a great view of Mt Diablo and the Vineyards. We had great service from Kayla and since we had some first time people visiting Shadowbrook, we also had Christian give us a nice tour of the winery operation The service was excellent and our food orders arrived quickly. The marguerita and Chopin flatbread's were to die for! We enjoyed many bottles of wine plus a few people indulged on their excellent choice of beers (Pilsner, Heff and IPA). Just a great way to spend 2.5 hours on a late Saturday afternoon.

This was a nice treat. Fun having a Napa in my back yard. Everything was 5 star. Wish they were open for a lunch during the week days. I see the start has been 3:00. I am a gal who goes to lunch many times. I can see me there at least once a week.

Can’t believe it has taken this long to go to this absolutely beautiful winery in our “back yard”! The wines were top notch and the food was delicious. Plus it is 7 min from our house. We have been riding our bikes past it on our way up Mt Diablo ever since that started planting their vineyard. We will be joining the wine club for certain.

Came to celebrate a birthday and retirement with several friends, it was the first time there for all of us. The grounds are beautiful and rival anything you will find in the Napa Valley. We were pleased to meet Tim, owner and wine maker, he was a kick to talk with and was kind enough to put up with our craziness. We had an enjoyable tasting and brought home several bottles. I didn’t rate high on the food because we only ordered a single flatbread which was standard fare.
The wines were fabulous and the pours were very generous. Will most defiantly be coming back taste and purchase additional bottles. Love the Sauvignon Blanc.
