We had a great experience and highly recommend St. Francis Winery's food and wine pairing. Seating is extremely limited due to social distancing policies so book well in advance. The event takes about 1-1/2 hours but it goes fast because each course comes out pretty quickly.

These days not too many wineries have full kitchen service but St. Francis does and the courses we had were delicious with outstanding presentation.

This is a fantastic wining & dining experience! The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the wines were very good. Our servers/hostesses were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about everything they presented. And the setting outside was gorgeous and felt really safe. It was a fantastic way to try some new things, enjoy the pairings, and just sit and relax at a beautiful winery for a while. This is my 2nd time doing one of these and i will definitely do it again.

Food delicious, wine amazing! Only draw back was that after we stopped at a local store and found the wine for cheaper. May not be the exact same but was little bummed to see.

Even though we were outside due to COVID and the weather wasn’t perfect, we still had a wonderful experience. We have been doing this several times a year for years, and we always are very happy.

Exceptional pairing in gorgeous covered, open air setting with room for sunshine or shade and heat lamps among ceiling beams. Socially distanced tables for each couple. Locally sourced foods from soup to salad, protein and desserts created to enhance the well known St Francis wines. Several whites, reds and even a port. We always learn something from the knowledgable staff and enjoyed the fun and laughter with strangers now friends. We will return.

St. Francis wine pairing is wonderful and not to be missed. The wines are all excellent and all the paired dishes were outstanding. We especially loved the lobster bisque and stuffed pork tenderloin. We're locals - if this were a restaurant, we'd be there weekly!

We love the St Francis food and wine pairing. Best non-restaurant dining experience in the Valley. 😊They really know their wines and you get a healthy pour with each course. They share special vintages not always available to the public. If you join their wine club, one or two of the categories allows you two free wine and food pairings a year, a nice a bonus.

From the introduction of the event by Andrea and Rene, our hosts who guides us through the pairing, through dessert and Port wine the experience was superb! The setting was Covid-19 appropriate with primarily tables for 2 and at least 10 feet apart.

We have experience several St. Francis chefs there is none better than Executive Chef Peter Janiak. The offering were innovative, well presented and delicious; not to mentions perfectly pair with St. Francis Wines.

This was truly and experience!

Chef Peter Janiak prepares startling impressive dishes that not only look pretty, but taste exquisitely gourmet. Rene and Andrea do an incredible job of explaining how the wine was selected to match the food and they give fun tidbits of history as well. This is a safe place to dine outdoors situated next to vines with Mayacama Mountain view. This truly is an astounding value which is why so many people from all over the country come here to dine. In addition, the wine is an excellent value and tastes superb which is why we ship it to family and friends for special occasions. We are never disappointed in this experience - it is over the top incredible. Foodies - this is a must do event:)

The 5 course food and wine pairing was amazing! The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We liked how they picked the wine and then decided what dish to pair with it. They provided a lot of food - not just a bite like a lot of food pairings would do. The wine was very good and we took 3 bottles home with us. The pairing took place on the patio, providing a beautiful view of the winery and mountains. The hostesses were very knowledgeable and friendly. We had an excellent time! It was the highlight of our week-long vacation in Sonoma and Napa. We cannot recommend it enough and will definitely go back.

This was a celebration dinner for friends and with friends. In today's environment that took some doing...had to get help to make reservations for four people and then meet our friends up there. It was a gorgeous day in Northern California, just before our current cold snap. Renee was the hostess and she clearly knows her business. The first sip of the lobster bisque and you know that Peter(?) the chef knows his business. We progressed through the food and wines culminating in the dark chocolate panna cotta with the St. Francis port, some of the last known by that name made in the US> The day continued fine for sitting on the lawn in the shade feeling the warmth and the slight breezes. A definite moment of contentment and gratitude.
