We go here to buy an amazing pasta sauce. The rest is like an italian mini city with a barrel room, market, tasting room, pizza place, cafe. There is so much going on and it all looks so made up. We have tried the wines and they are just okay. This time we tried the pizza and it was pretty... More

VJB is a fantastic stop off, not only for wine tasting but for what else they offer - truly gourmet pizza, superb gelato, home made chocolates, and a large variety of cheeses. You can also buy their very good wine by the glass to go with your food selection. Need I say more? Well, the whole setting is reminiscent of... More

What a delightful place to spend the day or just for lunch or a tasting. Great wine, really nice staff, Italian owners are precious, if you get a chance to meet them it's like being in their home. Not sure why I've never been there before. Great place to bring 1st timers too.

What a great place to have lunch! Everyone was so friendly and looked to be really enjoying the place where they worked. Wine tasting was fun and informative. The pizza and chicken sticks are fantastic! The cheese and bread... Yummy!!! The courtyard is perfect. The outdoor tables were clean and the surroundings were beautiful. Sit outside and enjoy your lunch... More

We came here on a recommendation from several other wineries in the area. I can see why! We got a card that gave us a free tasting which was hard to pass up. We also had lunch after the tasting. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Our server gave us a history of the winery, restaurant and family. In... More

Fantastic outdoor seating with great food (well priced too). The staff was very friendly. There is even a little soccer field and park just behind the parking lot, nice place to go sit and relax for a minute if you want some privacy or happen to have kids with you.

I didn't love VJB but I could see why some people would. The atmosphere and food were great. Definitely a fun and upbeat place to visit. But it seemed a bit cliché and forced for what I typically like. There were definitely a lot of people having a good time. We did a tasting and after about 2 options I... More

VJB Vineyards was recommended to us by Ryan from Napa Diver Tours and we are super happy he made this recommendation! First off, the service at VJB is fantastic. Everyone seemed to smile and be genuinely happy. We had lunch first and the food (Italian) was awesome. The outdoor seating area made us feel like we were in Italy. The... More

Finding VJB was one of our highlights in Sonoma. We liked it so much that we had to go back a second time. It's like Tuscany in Sonoma. Great Italian wine, delicious food (including a pizza oven outside) and very friendly hosts. We had a great time talking with Victorio, Maria and Henry, the owners of VJB. We will definitely...
