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.

We spent a lovely Fathers Day Sunday - enjoin the wine and olive oil tasting. This was our first visit. Everyone was really nice and the owner came around to chat with the tables and wish the Dads a happy Father’s Day. We will be back.

Shadowbrook is a gem tucked away in Walnut Creek. It is a beautiful winery with comfortable sitting areas inside and out. The service was relaxed and friendly. There are a lot of wine different wines to choose from all available by glass, bottle or a tasting flight. Flatbread pizza and small bites made a perfect lunch. We liked the Sparkling Chardonnay and Zinfandel best but all the wines were good. We will return often because we joined the wine club. Highly recommend a visit to Shadowbrook.

Overall great outing and great wine!! Their charcuterie board left a little to be desired for the price though. I’ve seen better amounts of items on a board for lesser the price and it was top goods also.
Thank you though great spot hidden in the hills of WC !

We reserved a table for three which placed us at a small round high top table. Not enough room for wine glasses, water glasses and appetizer plates for three. A glass of red wine ended up spilling all over my white pants. Big prices for big plates with little food.
I do however recommend the winery for the location, ambience, and good wine.

Ate off paper plates with plastic utensils. Beet salad served in a to go carton and soggy, like it was made days ago. Wine Tasting was too expensive for what you get. Same with food. The flat bread was good but the other foods were not very good. Disappointing and not a good value.

Beautiful venue and setting, great service from Christian. We each ordered just a glass of wine; will come back for a tasting sometime. Tried the Zinfandel and really liked it - ended up buying a bottle to bring home. Their Chardonnay has won accolades, but they are sold out, so hubby had a glass of Chard from their sister winery in Napa - he liked it. Would have liked to try the Cab, but the price point was a little high for my taste! We didn't try the food this time, but what we saw others ordering looked very tasty with beautiful presentation. We look forward to availability of some wine/food pairing events in the future. Tastings and food are pricey, so if you prepare for that in advance, it's an enjoyable experience!

The outdoor seating displays a beautiful view of the vineyards. Outdoor tables are in a patio setting. The day was cooler than expected but felt cozy and comfortable. They also have heaters for chilly days, but we didn't need them. We ordered the combo cheese & charcuterie platter -- twice, margherita and bianca flatbread. Bianca was my favorite, very cheesy with sausage. The wine was delicious -- the Bonneau chardonnay was very smooth so much so one of us ordered two bottles to take home. We were five girlfriends getting together with some of us not having seen each other in over a year, and we had a great time. I would highly recommend and we will definitely be going back.
