Beautiful grounds, amazing service, delicious wine and food. We booked a food and wine pairing and we were treated to a private table overlooking the gorgeous hillsides. We found it to be very comfortable and not pretentious. My friend and I felt so special! Thank you!

We did the food and wine pairing and had one of the best meals of our life! Chef Peter Janiak is amazing - he built recipes around the wine, using fresh produce from the garden he helps tend on property, and really brought out the best in the wine we sampled. Truly magnificent experience, and now we are club members. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I visited St. Francis Winery to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We did the food and wine pairing after reading reviews and articles on how awesome this was, and boy it did not disappoint! We had a fantastic time and the pairing was DELECTABLE! Highly recommend. And the grounds are lovely!

I didn’t think the food and wine pairing would be done as if we were on a field trip. Everyone in a room together…Very awkward, we had to introduce ourselves. It was very goofy. I was expecting something a little more high end for the price. I just wanted to relax and drink my wine and enjoy our pairing. Loved the food and wine but they need to have a different way of serving the foods.

A wonderful place to start your wine tasting trip. The food and wine pairing is delicious. The wine is picked first and the chef creates the food pairing around the wine. I have enjoyed this experience 4 times over the last 7 years. Each time has been a delight.

Food and wine pairings were amazing! We just wanted a smidge more food to go with the wine pairing. My favorite was the mozzarella and arancini ball with the tomato coloring. I could eat those out of a basket! The vineyard was stunning to look at while we enjoyed our experience. Katie, our server, did a wonderful job explaining everything about each wine and small bite. Fantastic job and we cannot wait to return!

We paid $60 per person for what we thought included food (a meal). They are costco sized samples. The shrimp tostada is ONE CHIP AND ONE SHRIMP. We were starving when we arrived, and when we checked in the man at the desk said he hope's we are hungry....its a joke...we left hungry. We figured the dessert at the very least be normal dessert sized, and it's the a 1.5 inch square piece of a cookie bar.

This all wouldn't have been such a big deal if they didn't push their membership so hard!!!
I paid $120 (plus tax and tip) to have the membership presented to me repeatedly by multiple people. When we checked in a man took us to a members parlor where he pitched the membership. Then when we were seated we were presented menu cards with membership pricing and she pitched the membership. With each item she brought to our table she pushed the membership AGAIN and AGAIN. If we said we didn't care for a certain wine she said ok just don't add that one to your membership as if she was 100% sure we are joining. It was too pushy. She also kept mentioning a lady named Katie that developed this wine or that wine but never said who she was or the importance of this person. We ended up declining to join their club and the waitress seemed offended/disappointed. We came here for a special anniversary afternoon while visiting the area on a business trip and wanted a relaxing lunch. We left hungry, annoyed and confused and honestly didn't even purchase one bottle of wine. We just wanted to get out the door and drive to find food. We ended up going to a burger place down the road right after. Very disappointed!

We did the food and wine pairing and it was phenomenal! The only negative to the experience is we wanted to purchase a bottle after and sit and enjoy it and we were told that we were not allowed to. They only let their guests enjoy up to two glasses on the property and since we had already enjoyed pairings with our food we were unable to have any additional which I found strange especially because most of the patrons are being driven by Uber drivers.

It was the most amazing experience ever! As always. It’s my favorite thing to do on the planet. Saint Francis‘s wine and food pairing never disappoints. It is an experience to behold. The staff is amazing and knowledgeable. It’s absolutely 90 minutes of pure joy and the food and the wine are to die for. Cannot recommend it enough! It was my birthday and it was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday. Hats off to the staff at Saint Francis winery for always making this experience incredible!

The overall experience was phenomenal! We were celebrating out 21st wedding anniversary and we are from Chicago (the staff from Hyatt Sonoma), recommended the winery. The food was great along with the wines that went along with it, the staff are very attentive ( you don’t feel rushed while eating), the ambiance was very calming and peaceful ( it was far enough from the crowd), and the beat part is when the chef came out at the end to greet us.. I would recommend this to anyone going to Sonoma and will definitely do it again when we go back to Cali.

As always, this was a fun, delicious, and fascinating experience. We are Wine Club members, so this was a great way to ease back into a socially distanced, outdoor dining event with fully vaccinated friends. For many people, this will be the perfect step forward after a year of compromise for the good of all.

Get vaccinated and go!
