We’ve been members at St. Francis for 8+ years. We love the food and wine experience and we are excited for it every year. However, we were disappointed with the facilitators this year. When they showed up in jeans with their hair in messy buns, their appearance seemed mismatched with the experience. There were also servers in jeans and yoga pants. We highly recommend this event to everyone we know and now we’re second guessing it. We hope St Francis will match the presenters to the experience in the future.

It was a delightful experience! The explanation of the wine and food pairing was so informative; it motivates you the experiment with other wines and food to create your own pairing. We will be back.
Of particular note are the two hostesses who by their expert presentation makes this a learning and fun experience!

My lifetime (we met in grade school) friends came to visit. For one week we went everywhere: SF the city, Tahoe, Napa, Sonoma. But the highlight of the trip was our visit to St. Francis. We enjoyed every minute, every taste: from the friendly greeting with a glass of Chardonnay to the last bite of the food/wine pairing. What a day. What incredible food. What great wine. A special thanks to the St. Francis staff. Can't wait to visit again.

By far the best wine and food pairing. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Chef Trevor continues to knock it out of the park with his food. We visit twice a year and always recommend to family and friends.

The wine paring experience was wonderful. The staff could not have been better. The Chef prepared a terrific ensemble of food to compliment the delicious St. Francis wines. We will be back to experience another fabulous paring.

Every time I return they've outdone themselves yet again! Okay, that's true. But with the presentation of each course, it seems the meal keeps getting better and better too. I love their fresh vegetables from their garden, always seasonal. This time, the first surprise was fried SMELT--who knows smelt on the west coast? It was a delicacy, though I was raised on it and hadn't eaten it for about 40 years and it was fabulous, something I hope they cycle through their menu. But that's what makes it amazing--Chef is always changing, always keeping things fresh, to keep beautiful pairings with the current wines. And the wines are always the stars of the show, in spite of how fabulous the food is. They work so well together, never just an after thought as a pairing. I love going back once or twice a year to see what's on the plates. This is a paired food/wine that you don't want to miss!

St. Francis food and wine pairing was the highlight of our Napa weekend. Chef Trevor was fantastic as wine was paired perfectly. The moon cheese fondue was all of our favorites that we need to buy it. We really wanted to go back and do it again for dinner. Hint hint - have a dinner! The only bad thing was you can only go 11, 1 or 4.

We did the food and wine pairing on recommendation of my parents who did this 5 years prior for their 30th anniversary. It 100% lived up to the hype! The food was amazing and the wine incredible. I don't normally enjoy dry red wines but their dry reds have no bitterness or bite and are incredibly smooth and complex. We loved it and would 100% do it again!

This is a wonderful, intimate experience, 16 seats total. A very creative tasting menu driven by the great wines at St. Francis. You will meet new people, eat delicious food and drink terrific wine. The staff is super, you can tell they enjoy delivering this experience. We take all our out of town guests to the food and wine pairing and all love it!

Wine and food paring event at St. Francis. Event was held in a separate hall set up with tables for 16 in a circle. Very comfortable room away from the crowd in the tasting room. Two event coordinators took us through a 5 course tasting with a different wine for each course. The wines were from a reserve selection and not available in retail stores. The food was outstanding, and the wine paring was spot on. The Chef came out at the end to answer questions. This of course was followed by a pitch to join their wine club, but it was very low key and no pressure. We didn’t join the wine club, but we did purchase a case of the reserve wines to ship home. I would highly recommend attending this event. Excellent job St. Francis!

Attended St Francis Winery over the Labor Holiday Weekend with my wife and 2 daughters to celebrate a birthday. The food and wine pairing was excellent. Staff walked us through the different wines and how they go with the food it was being paired with. At the end, the Chef came out and talked with us.
