Fantastic, friends to us there for our anniversary (their 1st also). Very nice, the staff were so friendly and inviting, made you feel at home, by no means a pretentious winery. Beautiful Italian decor, a plaza, singers, on site food(firewood pizza and a "Genuine") and of course very good wine.

The wines were superb, and the food was surprisingly good as I had lower expectations for the simple fare offered; the pizzas were great and we went back a day later for more. The best part was the wine tasting, which exceeded my expectations on the quality of the current vintages - while they can be aged, the Sangiovese and... More

So laid back, so comfortable and friendly. From the moment you enter, the decor makes you feel like you've come into a comfy living room. The purveyors were helpful, kniwledgeable, friendly but never more than was comfortable. Had a great experience there. Oh yeah, the wine was wonderful too. :)

Of all the places that we visited in Sonoma--VJB was our favorite. From the personality and helpfulness of the staff to the incredible wine and food, do yourself a visit and visit this winery.

We loved our experience from the moment we walked through the gate. We had a private tasting in the plaza, munched on salami and cheese while each of our tastings were brought to us and then stayed for pizza and ribs and a jug of wine. What a great way to while away the afternoon.

VJB specializes in Italian style wines which we were interested in learning more about. The tasting room is very nice, the staff very knowledgeable, and the wine is outstanding. While doing a tasting, we were able to get a cheese and deli tray to go along with the wine. Afterwards we sat in the courtyard with a freshly made pizza... More

Hi Gary, thank you for your review! Hope you learned about our Italian varietals during your visit in the tasting room. My staff truly enjoys teaching others about the world of Italian wines grown in California. The piazza is the hub of our property, glad to know you enjoyed a pizza and a glass of wine outside. Come back again!... More
