The three people in our party had a delightful time at the five course food and wine pairing at St. Francis. We had a beautiful private room with large windows and doors over looking the hills and the Vineyard. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of wine prior to being seated. The pace of the meal was not too rushed. All of the food was delicious and all of the wines were very well explained. I definitely think we have a better appreciation for how wine and food work together. I would definitely do this again.

This was our annual free food and wine pairing that we have done twice before- this time we decided to go at 3 for what we thought would be a little more leisurely experience but that wasn’t the case. At 4:20 they told us they needed the chairs for a wedding and basically kicked us out and made it uncomfortable to ask for any additional tastes of wine.

We are wine club members and love the wine, but the food and wine pairing was not as good as before, especially for the cost. Kendal Jacksons experience was much better, larger portions, cheff came out and talkes with us a lot and the food was delicious.

I have been here multiple times with friends from across the world. Nobody leaves this food and wine pairing without being very impressed. The pairing have been rates the best in the United States four years running.

St. Francis starts with their own award winning wines and builds food around the wine flavor profiles. This is the opposite of many pairings that start with the food flavor profile and seek out compatible wines for pairing. The result is a very finely tuned match of wine to food that will surely impress everyone -- from newcomer to committed foodie.

Multiple wines and Tapas sized plates are presented to groups of approximately 20 in a banquet room with two server hosts. The Chef will join you at the end of the tasting to discuss the pairing and answer any questions. Reservations should be made at least a few weeks in advance. It is very rare for any seats to be available for those who walk or call in for same-day seating.

Excellent food. Great wine. Small and intimate dining. Service is great and met the chef at the end. However I personally would love to have a bit more time between each course to savor the flavor and wine. We had 3 pm slot and it was perfect. Walk around a bit afterward with less crowd. Would definitely put it on the must do list.

This was our second food and wine adventure at St. Francis, first time with their new chef. In a word, it was FABULOUS! Each of the 5 courses was designed around the selected wine for that course, not the other way around. The menu was inventive, fresh and beautifully presented. The wines were also delicious. Reservations are required and they are closed Tues/Wednesdays but this is a highlight to any wine country experience.

Hands down the best meal and dining experience we had all week long. I would seriously consider coming back and eating here every day for their food and wine paring. The food was masterfully crafted and went incredibly well with the wine choices. The chef is at the top of his game! Great wine, with amazing food paired with it! I can't recommend this highly enough!

As a resident of Sonoma County, I can honestly say that one of the best things anyone can do when visiting the area is to schedule the wine and food pairing at St. Francis Winery! Their wines are ALL fabulous, and the thought that goes into deciding on a food pairing menu is always spot on! They start with the wine, rather than the food, and thus after a sip of wine that you don't think can get any better, you taste the food and sip again and viola! perfection!

In addition to a great wine and food pairing, the winery itself is beautiful with it's location against the Sonoma hills and vineyards. Even if you just stop by for a tasting without food, it's worth the visit.

Finally, a huge shout out to the host of the wine and food pairing! Andrea is always warm and friendly, with loads of knowledge about the wines, the food and the winery itself. She never rushes you and totally adds to the overall experience.

Don't miss it, but make sure to make a reservation! This high-value Sonoma treat is very popular and always books up fast!

I'd always heard that this was the best wine & food pairing in Sonoma County. As a local, we don't go out to wineries as often as we did when we were visitors. I have to say, this was a first class experience. Fun, approachable, exquisite food & wine pairings. Can't wait to do it again- we're going to book up for the evening dinner experience next!
