We stopped here for a late lunch after a wine tasting at a nearby winery. The deli selection is vast and all the paninis we had were delicious and very satisfying. The outdoor seating patio is spacious and offers sun or shade options. We didn't stay for any wine, but did enjoy or lunch experience and would most likely return.

This was our second stop in Sonoma. Wine was pretty good, even though one of them was cloudy and had stuff floating in it. Best part was the deli. We had a salami and olive plate .... Oh my. I wish I had one right now :)

Our vacation rental provided a "VIP Referral Card" to VJB, so we thought "Hey, why not?" It turned out to be our favorite winery stop this trip! Jared, our tasting guide, was very knowledgeable about the unique Italian varietals used in the making of their delicious wines. He also helped us understand the family history behind this unique place nestled... More

We enjoyed our visit to the tasting room at VJB Vineyards. The wine was pretty good, but not spectacular. The highlight would have been the Estate Cab. However, the pizza and courtyard are the real stars. We thoroughly enjoyed having wine and pizza in the courtyard after a couple hours visiting other wineries around VJB. The tasting room is tastefully... More

We really like the courtyard. It is relaxing and inviting. It has small tables as well as a couple of large tables for groups of more than 10. The pizzas are good. The cheese platter goes very well with their wine. We particularly like their house blend and cab.

Jared and Lindsay really know how to look after their guests. Fun and interactive wine tasting. Barbera shouldn't be missed.

A friendly inviting vineyard. Excellent selection of wine to taste and a very nice patio restaurant with pizza and sandwiches. A nice way to spend a lunch in Sonoma.

Having spent all weekend going to wineries in and around Sonoma / Napa, we were very excited for our tasting & lunch at VJB. The tasting was the worst we went to, hands down. We had a group of 7 ladies, and the server didn't know the wines he was pouring & could not answer any of our questions (which... More

Visited this winery with one of the local growers. It was highly recommended by the grower. It has a very nice tasting room and deli. We did not eat lunch there but you can get sandwiches or other very good looking Italian deli products to go or to enjoy on their patio. Also make wood fired pizzas on the patio.... More

Count me among the majority of reviewers that found this place to be excellent. This is a great place to stop for a late lunch after visiting a few wineries, yet still continuing your wine tour. The family is so accommodating and friendly. The wood fire pizzas are definitely a must have - the margarita pizza with fresh leaves of... More
