This was our second time at St Francis and if it's possible, it was better than our first (which was outstanding!). 5 courses with wine pairings, each course matched to the wine, an utterly fantastic experience. If you find yourself in Sonoma/Santa Rosa, go here!

My wife and I attended the wine and food pairing at St. Francis Winery last week. This was the highlight of our visit to Sonoma Valley. Everything really was perfect! The Winery itself is absolutely beautiful, with lovely sculpture and gardens, and we were greeted with a nice chardonnay to sip while we waited for the rest of the guests.

We had 5 courses of food paired with 5 reserve wines. Everything was prepared perfectly from a delicious Arctic Char with crispy mushroom paired with a wonderful Pinot Noir to a grilled Waygu beef with fresh Chimichurri served with a beautiful cab. The food was perfectly paired with each course of wine.

The wine director was very informative and walked us through the entire experience, and when the chef was introduced at the end of the meal he received a unanimous ovation.

I wouldn’t hesitate to attend another pairing at St. Francis, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone in the area!

We enjoyed a multi-course meal with paired wines. All courses were exceptional, with the Moroccan fish tagine and grilled Wagyu beef being most notable. The 2014 Old Vines zinfandel from My Father's Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley was the perfect complement to the Wagyu beef, and was our favorite wine of the event. We also enjoyed the 2015 Chardonnay, Wild Oak Vineyard, Sonoma Valley. A self-guided stroll through the vineyard concluded our visit.

My wife and I booked the wine and food pairing as part of our anniversary celebration. We had read so much about it and it surpassed all expectations, despite the fact that we learned the winery was in transition between executive chefs. Sous Chef Eric Watesky and helpers provided an extraordinary experience for about a dozen of us. We were educated on the food, wine and tastes by a pair of very knowledgeable lady hosts. For me the highlight was the pairing of 2014 Old Vines Zin (My Father's Vineyard) with Pork Adobado and the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rockpile) with Grilled Wagyu Beef. My wife is a vegetarian (we called this in ahead of time) and she enjoyed a great Grilled Plantain and Crab Cake in place of the pork and beef. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event for us that we will never forget.

The wine & food pairing was highly recommended and did not disappoint! My husband requested vegetarian and the chef did not disappoint even though most of the items for others consisted of meat or fish. We gained knowledge about cooking, wine pairings, and repeat diners. This was an amazing surprise reservation we will repeat next visit to the area. The wine served is not the typical St Francis retail wine experience.

I am not a foodie nor do I have any expertise as to wine. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the St. Francis experience. The food was beautifully presented, interesting, and delicious. The wine truly set the tone for the food. Our "guide" was warm, hospitable, and knowledgable. This was an absolute win!

As long time fans of St. Francis wine, we decided to visit the winery and enjoy a wine pairing feast. The wine and food far exceeded our expectations and with the exception of the port (which was good), we ordered one or several bottles of all offerings and had them shipped home to South Carolina.

From the welcoming glass of wine we were given through the port and chocolate trifle, this was a fabulous experience. The wines were uniformly excellent, and the chef's pairings were perfectly matched to the wines. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite course. The opening cucumber gazpacho was a refreshing start. The flavors in the halibut tagine were complex and made me want to scoop up every last drop. Next came a pulled pork adobado which was taken to the next level with the avocado puree and spinach huaraches that accompanied it. The old vine zin that accompanied it was my favorite wine of the day. Then there was the grilled zabutan, which may possibly be the best steak I've ever eaten. And finally, a perfect chocolate trifle. Portions are small, but sufficient for my husband and I. The hosts, Tina and Terra, did a lovely job of explaining the wines and food, and created a friendly atmosphere at the table. We can't wait to return!
