An extraordinary pairing of great wines and great food, presented and guided by expert hosts in a beautiful venue -- truly a singular and memorable experience. Excellent value as well. Our meal was the centerpiece and highlight of a day in wine country -- can't recommend it highly enough.

Little did we know as we sat at beautiful St. Francis winery on a lovely Sunday afternoon, that a mere 8 hours later the entire mountain behind it would be in flames! Thankfully the winery itself survived the firestorm of October 2017 and will go on to entertain and satisfy many more people seeking an educational and delicious wine pairing experience. My group of four, visiting from all around the world thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at the winery! We found the food to be unique and delicious and the wines were well matched and worthy of many more tastings in the near future. The seating of guests in a large circle encourages engagement and conversation. We all found this wine pairing experience to be exceptional value! Come and enjoy it as soon as you can!

Excellent and wine pairing. Food was presented beautifully, explained in detail, matched perfectly with the wine, and tasted out of this world. I would HIGHLY recommend this tasting if you appreciate great food with great wine. Learned how to pair certain tastes with specific wines. Beautiful atmosphere in the dining room.

We love to visit St. Francis Winery and the food and wine pairing experience is awesome. The Chef prepares wonderful food bites and pairs with the perfect wine. The only problem is, you leave wanting MORE! Perhaps a cookbook/wine pairing should be in the works? Thanks for the great time!

We had yet another wonderful food and wine pairing experience at St. Francis! We try not to miss a season as the menu changes with each new season. Excellent value, delicious food every time, beautiful views... this time we joined the wine club as well. Treat yourself to their food and wine pairing, you won't regret it!

 (Naples)·Dined on September 28, 2017

We visited a lot of wineries in Napa and Sonoma, most were OK and at least one was a real disappointment. St Francis was the star. We were there for the food and wine pairing and it was perfect in every respect. The food was gourmet (Michelin star caliber) and the wine matched perfectly. This was accompanied by helpful and knowledgeable staff - and yes we ordered wine to be shipped back.

Only disappointment is that the Chef does not share recipes.

On a recent weekend in Sonoma/Napa, my husband and I chose to do the wine and food pairing at St. Francis based on the stellar reviews we'd read and it ended up being the highlight of our trip. Each of the five tasting courses was paired perfectly with a different wine as we were guided as to what to look and taste for as we savored each selection. Definitely the best food of our trip and an overall great experience - highly recommended!

Absolutely wonderful experience! Enjoyed a mother daughter weekend in Sonoma and started Sunday off at St. Francis. The wines are superb (so much so, 8 bottles came home with us!) And the food by Chef Bryan Jones was perfectly paired with each sip. We can not thank you enough for the wonderful Sunday! See you again soon!

Outstanding food and wine pairings. Five small courses, but no one went away hungry. Beautiful mountain and vineyard scenery. Service is close to elegant, as correct silver and glasses accompanied each course. We have made this our go to restaurant experience for entertaining visitors. No other restaurant we've tried in Sonoma, Napa or Marin counties has been as good an experience at twice the price.

I love the St. Francis food and wine pairing - it is the best food/wine experience for the money in northern California. The menu (see website) changes seasonally and is fixed for the season. The staff explains the reasoning behind the pairing and the development of the food courses.

This is the fourth wine/food pairing we have done with St Francis Winery... it gets better every time. We had one of our group who cannot eat red meat and the chef did an outstanding pairing just for her. We always make this pairing either our first or last of a long weekend in wine country.

We love the seared scallop pair the Sauvignon blanc the most. The acidity of Sauvignon blanc vs salty caramelized scallop bring out the natural sweetness of scallop. Bravo!

This was our fourth time here. We did feel a little rushed with the courses. Before the meal lasted about 2 hours, they have shortened it to 1 1/2 hours. For five courses it's just a little fast.
