Incredible wine and food paring! Portion size is great and the wine to go with was incredible! Can’t wait to go back.
I cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience. The wine and food together were truly a match made in heaven, the young ladies who guided us through the tasting were knowledgeable and so very welcoming. I would highly recommend a visit. Book ahead of time!
This was our third time for a food pairing at St. Francis and it may have been the best yet! Perfect little plates paired to perfection with St. Francis wine. Get out there and try it!!!
Great food & wine. Excellent servers. Wine and food pairing was a fun experience. Plenty of original creations.
Great food and wine pairings. Nice experience.
This was my husband's and my 4 th consecutive year enjoying the wine and food pairing at St. Francis. This time, we brought my niece and her husband. The servings were delicious, and were larger portions than in past years. I don't know if it was because the head chef was not present, but the sous chef did a spectacular job! We will be going back next year! Great value, great food, great wine & fun group at our table!
The wine pairing and tasting menu was incredible! Great wines, great food, great staff, and a beautiful location. Can’t wait to make it back out there!
Great experience, great food and wine pairings, lovely ambiance
We love visiting St. Francis when we are in Sonoma. Highly recommend the food and wine pairing. The food is specially paired with St. Francis amazing wines. Such a fun experience.
Just wonderful. Food, service, everything.
Amazing, the best for wine and food pairing. Unique setting in The Valley of the Moon. They grow their own herbs and veggies and do things with food you never thought possible. It's terrific even without the wine but with the wine you are transported. I mean it, you have to
go! It is a bargain for what you get.
This a a top notch way to enjoy wine tasting. The food pairings were beyond delicious with a most appealing presentation. There were 5 different plates including dessert, all were fabulous and not to be missed. This was our second visit and we will return in the end. If I could give them 5+ stars I would.
Everything about our experience at the St. Frances Winery was exceptional. Our daughter was visiting from Washington and was so impressed with the food, she was taking pictures and sending them home to tease her husband! We were both so impressed with their wine that we joined their Wine Club. Overall, we highly recommend the Wine and Food Paring event at the St. Frances Winery.
Amazing food, amazing wine, amazing service!!
Went for our birthday. Been going here for around five years. Its wonderful. And this time was the best ever!!!
Great dishes paired with traffic
Tasty wines for a full meal with great service and ambience
It was a wonderful experience!
As a Sonoma local I enjoy a good food and wine pairing experience. This is the best I've had so far. Last week was my third food and wine pairing at St. Francis over the past five years. My three guests were in heaven, as was I. If I had my druthers I'd go once per season.
Continues to be the best event dining experience with fantastic food and wine pairings freshly prepared for each seating with high quality wines. Never disappoints.
One of our favorite things to do in Sonoma, and our guests LOVED it. Pairing the food with the wines of St. Francis Winery was so much fun to enjoy. Our hostess was gracious, informative and on point. The setting in the dining room and the hills and vineyards in the background was so beautiful, even if there are a few hillsides of charred vegetation from the Oct fires -- makes you appreciate it all the more that you can't minimize a view like that.
The price at $72 per person was higher than times we've done this experience in the past, but still, such a lovely experience for the 16 people at our seating time -- wines and food were a treat!
We were seated on time. The pairing guidelines were explained and we went through the process. Tina was a great host and the food was spectacular. The wine and pairing were great as well.
The wine pairing with food was excellent. The presentation was pleasant. The wine explanations were very good. The food was creative without being the current crazy.
My husband and I ended up with a private seating. We had a great tasting guide. The food was excellent from start to finish and thoughtfully paired with each wine. The ambiance in the tasting room and the view of the property were also very nice. Overall I would highly recommend!
Beautiful place, exquisite food. On a rainy Monday, I can't think of a better place to spend time learning some fantastic New wines enjoyed with beautifully conceived food pairings. Kudos to Chef Eric, and our hostess Tina for a lovely experience. I'm sure we'll return.
We were lucky to get a last minute spot on a rainy Sunday afternoon. So lucky because each plate and wine that passed before us made the world a little brighter. By the time we left we were feeling all warm and sunny. You can't predict the weather, but I predict you will love the pairing, staff and cuisine.
AS ALWAYS FABULOUS! Chef Bryan pairs his creations with great care and it shows. The wine is also a highlight! Chef Bryan knows how to bring out the best in both the food and wine....thank you for a lovely and yummy culinary and wine experience! Not to mention the St. Francis team is incredible.
This was well worth the visit. I took my daughter for her birthday. It was so fun and the food and wine pairing was so well done. Delicious. Would definitely do this again.
Fabulous wine pairing at a world class winery with an exceptional chef. Top rated wine pairing in America in 2015 and 2016. Award-winning wines. Reservations required well in advance. Menu changes over time. Farm to table with local produce and meats.
It's a must do. The finest flavors in every course.
Wonderful experience. Will be back
Once again an awesome wine and food experience. Exquisite food partnered with delicious wines along with very interesting narrative by informed hosts. Good sized group means we all get top attention without feeling pushed. This is "our" moment. Thank you!
We were treating a nephew and niece-in-law to a special occasion (visiting us from Texas). One had special food issues (gluten/dairy-free) which were accommodated and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the food/wine and overall experience! They bought a couple of bottles of wine as they were headed to a few days in Big Sur. It was our second experience (and we're scheduled again for January 19 with another friend)....just thoroughly delicious and enjoyable. Thanks so much!!
Always excellent. Have taken guests at various times of the year and it is always an outstanding experience.
This is our second visit to the St. Francis Winery food and wine pairing. As was the first time, it is a genuine treat experiencing the food and wine pairing here. We were here with a group of six celebrating my best friend's 75th birthday. The two women hostesses were terrific explaining everything that we were eating and drinking. And we loved that the chef came out at the end of meal to answer any questions that we had. We will definitely return for the next special occasion.
Food, every course, was mouth-wateringly delicious!
This is probably the 4th or 5th time we have enjoyed the tasting menu at St. Francis. Each time we enjoyed it more than the last. It is a five course extravaganza with wines paired from St Francis' premium collection of varietals. They change menu items with the seasons so you always experience something new. This time we started with a pan seared cobia, a firm, flaky white fish that absorbs the flavors of its seasonings. It was paired with their 2015 chardonnay from Wild Oak Vineyard. I particularly enjoyed the root vegetables and ham & peas that accompanied it. The second course was a complex and varied chicory-mushroom salad with lardons (bacon) fresh & dried fruits, shavings of pecorino toscano, and a sweet sorghum gastrique. As good as it sounds. The next course was a duck preparation we hadn't had before - duck rillettes over yam puree, beetroot and citrus, topped with cocoa nib crumble. Delicious! This was paired with one of our favorites - SF Zinfandel - in this case from the Monticello Vineyard. The entree was a Snake River grilled flatiron steak with smoked, crispy potatoes - we could have made a meal of the potatoes alone. Th steak was well marbled and fork-tender, done to medium rare perfection. This was paired with an award winning Cabernet from Moon Mountain, Sonoma's newest AVA. The sweet-cap to the afternoon came in the form of a bittersweet chocolate cremeux with chocolate crumble, dulce de lece and an anise meringue "cookie". Of course it could only be accompanied by a smooth and silky 2014 SF Port. Because we are wine club members, we get to enjoy a complimentary meal once a year, but that never stops us from visiting as paying customers too. Can't recommend this special food and wine event highly enough. Book early, spots fill up quickly - especially on weekends. A wonderful way to spend a pre-Christmas Sunday afternoon.
Excellent food and experience. Will definitely do the food and wine pairing again on our next visit.
Excellent pairing of the food and wine as always
The salad and steak was exceptional
My niece was visiting from Canada and loved the entire experience
St Francis is a beautiful winery and the staff are wonderful
I have only one word FA-BU-LOUS!!!!
