St. Francis Winery & Vineyards
From arriving at the winery to enjoy the beautiful views, the dining room, service, staff knowledge, food, wine - it's my husband & I's favorite event while in wine country! If you haven't tried this experience, put it on your list of to-do's today!
The three people in our party had a delightful time at the five course food and wine pairing at St. Francis. We had a beautiful private room with large windows and doors over looking the hills and the Vineyard. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of wine prior to being seated. The pace of the meal was not too rushed. All of the food was delicious and all of the wines were very well explained. I definitely think we have a better appreciation for how wine and food work together. I would definitely do this again.
Always one of my favorite food experiences in wine country!
It seems like the courses were rushed in coming out, but otherwise it was a fantastic experience
The whole experience was fabulous. Great wine, food, comfortable dining room with a view. Very special.
This was our annual free food and wine pairing that we have done twice before- this time we decided to go at 3 for what we thought would be a little more leisurely experience but that wasn’t the case. At 4:20 they told us they needed the chairs for a wedding and basically kicked us out and made it uncomfortable to ask for any additional tastes of wine.
This is a great experience that shouldn't be missed. Of course the wine is phenomenal, but the food pairing brings it all together.
The Wine and food pairing experience at St. Francis was exceptional! My husband and I had such a nice time and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Sonoma. Just so wonderful!
Always a spectacular experience food, wine, and fun!
So glad we made time for the wine & food pairing at St. Francis. We enjoyed everything-- from the winery, the dining atmosphere, the food, as well as the wine!
Great wonderful food good wine beautiful setting
Food and wine pairing was perfect and we also met some very nice people
Had a great experience! The food and the wine pairing was excellent! The chef talked to us at the end, which was a nice touch. Would go back for sure!
Pairings and wine were excellent with a top notch chef. A must do if you are in Sonoma!
If I could give this more stars, I would! My second food and wine experience at St. Francis (this time was for my/our 29th anniversary). I'm hoping to bring my niece there on her next visit in May...she's French and loves great wine and food. Excited to show her California's best!
We are wine club members and love the wine, but the food and wine pairing was not as good as before, especially for the cost. Kendal Jacksons experience was much better, larger portions, cheff came out and talkes with us a lot and the food was delicious.
Food and wine tasting was incredible. Beautiful setting, friendly host,great food.
Highly recommend this food and wine pairing, loved everything about the experience.
Wine is selected to go with the food and it Is Exquisite!
I have been here multiple times with friends from across the world. Nobody leaves this food and wine pairing without being very impressed. The pairing have been rates the best in the United States four years running.
St. Francis starts with their own award winning wines and builds food around the wine flavor profiles. This is the opposite of many pairings that start with the food flavor profile and seek out compatible wines for pairing. The result is a very finely tuned match of wine to food that will surely impress everyone -- from newcomer to committed foodie.
Multiple wines and Tapas sized plates are presented to groups of approximately 20 in a banquet room with two server hosts. The Chef will join you at the end of the tasting to discuss the pairing and answer any questions. Reservations should be made at least a few weeks in advance. It is very rare for any seats to be available for those who walk or call in for same-day seating.
This was our first time at St. Francis and it was a wonderful experience. Food was so delicious, wine was great. Would highly recommend it.
Excellent food. Great wine. Small and intimate dining. Service is great and met the chef at the end. However I personally would love to have a bit more time between each course to savor the flavor and wine. We had 3 pm slot and it was perfect. Walk around a bit afterward with less crowd. Would definitely put it on the must do list.
Outstanding food and wine experience. It was the highlight of our recent trip to wine country.
Quite enjoyed the communal setting, surprisingly. Met some charming folks and of course the pairings were lovely.
We had such a fun time at our wine and food pairing tasting! All the courses were delicious and it was a great touch that the chef came out and chatted with us at the end.
Couldn’t have asked for better food or service. Highly recommend!
Wine and food pairing is a must at st Francis. The new chef Trevor Eliason was awesome. We are still talking about his food pairings. Absolutely top notch.
Very impressed with the current chef. Each dish was interesting, complex and delicious and carefully paired.
Wine pairing with food
This was our second food and wine adventure at St. Francis, first time with their new chef. In a word, it was FABULOUS! Each of the 5 courses was designed around the selected wine for that course, not the other way around. The menu was inventive, fresh and beautifully presented. The wines were also delicious. Reservations are required and they are closed Tues/Wednesdays but this is a highlight to any wine country experience.
The food pairings are delicious and creative. Reservations can be hard to get, so book early.
We went to the Food and Wine pairing. Such a nice experience - the food was delicious and the wines were nicely paired. We went with another couple and will go back! If you join their wine club, you get a new one of these each year.
Hands down the best meal and dining experience we had all week long. I would seriously consider coming back and eating here every day for their food and wine paring. The food was masterfully crafted and went incredibly well with the wine choices. The chef is at the top of his game! Great wine, with amazing food paired with it! I can't recommend this highly enough!
As a resident of Sonoma County, I can honestly say that one of the best things anyone can do when visiting the area is to schedule the wine and food pairing at St. Francis Winery! Their wines are ALL fabulous, and the thought that goes into deciding on a food pairing menu is always spot on! They start with the wine, rather than the food, and thus after a sip of wine that you don't think can get any better, you taste the food and sip again and viola! perfection!
In addition to a great wine and food pairing, the winery itself is beautiful with it's location against the Sonoma hills and vineyards. Even if you just stop by for a tasting without food, it's worth the visit.
Finally, a huge shout out to the host of the wine and food pairing! Andrea is always warm and friendly, with loads of knowledge about the wines, the food and the winery itself. She never rushes you and totally adds to the overall experience.
Don't miss it, but make sure to make a reservation! This high-value Sonoma treat is very popular and always books up fast!
It was a lovely experience. The food and the wines were paired with excellence and the staff did a wonderful job of presenting the wine and the winery. Will be back. Thank you.
Wine and Food pairing was amazing!!
This was an amazing experience for my wife and I. The food and wine pairing was incredible and I will most certainly go back next time I visit Napa!
One of the must-do experiences of Sonoma Valley. We've been several times--this time for my husband's birthday, because this is such a special occasion thing to do. Unusual food choices and wine pairings that just make everything taste better.
It was exquisite!! Excellent food paired with delicious wines.
Friendly service and atmosphere!
I'd always heard that this was the best wine & food pairing in Sonoma County. As a local, we don't go out to wineries as often as we did when we were visitors. I have to say, this was a first class experience. Fun, approachable, exquisite food & wine pairings. Can't wait to do it again- we're going to book up for the evening dinner experience next!
Wine pairing lunch was spectacular! Worth every dollars! Staff knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. They pulled the experience together based on their knowledge. Service was so smooth and gracious. The food, ah the food, I could eat that every day.
