We visited VJB on a managers meeting/team builder. There was a group of seven of us which since my boss was a club member enjoyed the upstairs seating area and treated to the best "home made" food consisting of appetizer plates, salads, delicious pizzas and ribs. The wine was off the hook fantastic and our servers were friendly and extremely... More

They ask have equally tasty food (so important for a day of wine tastings!) Highly recommend their wood... More

My husband and I LOVE VJB! We have been a few times and have really enjoyed it! There is a great patio outside, delicious food and the wine of course is amazing! We joined the wine club because it was so good! Definitely go and plan to have lunch or snack while you are there!

I was here on weekend when it was Sonoma valley Crush in 2014. It was great timing because all the grapevines had fruits and it was time for harvest. When we did the tasting, the host was good and knowledgeable about the wines she was pouring us. We tasted 5 of their wines. 2 Whites and 3 Red. My fave... More

Had a tasting here, Kristen was very knowledgable and friendly and made us feel more than welcome. We liked the selection of wines and ended up buying several bottles. To receive a handwritten note from her after the fact was a nice touch. Definitely would recommend this place.

My sister is a club member here so she made sure to bring us here while we visited Sonoma. They specialize in somewhat rare vintages that are uncommon in the US. Of all the wines we sampled this weekend, this place was my favorite.
