It was my birthday weekend. It was a wine tasting adventure in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma. We'd been to VJB before, but were extremely eager to return. The wine is top notch, as is the customer experience. Also, NOTHING can top their freshly made pizza with a glass of excellent wine. Truly a delightful and heavenly experience.

VJB has great wine, great food, and great customer service! Win, win, win!!! I would recommend going for a tasting, staying for a pizza or ribs and a glass of wine, and leaving with a bottle (or two). The staff is extremely helpful and will do what they can to make you have the best experience!

Grazie, Richard! When we built our facility we really wanted our guests to feel as though they stepped in to a piazza in Italy where family and friends gather to enjoy great wine, delicious food and one another's company. We look forward to seeing you the next time you visit. Thank you for taking the time to post a review!... More

We visited three times in one weekend. That's how much we LOVED this winery. They have excellent customer service: we were immediately greeted and directed to the tasting room upon arrival and by the end of our informative tasting we signed up for their wine club. After looking at their beautiful deli how could we say no? I forget the... More

Wish I could give it 5 stars, but they have birds in pitifully tiny cages. First it was mostly doves and chickens, but now they've added some more exotic ones who's cages are equally depressing. The thought of spending one day in there makes my skin crawl and looking into their eyes is heartbreaking. On the other hand, the wood... More

We did a group tasting at VJB Vineyards. We were very satisfied, as they were extremely accommodating. We were cool outside, so they moved us inside, where we really enjoyed our lunch (great pizzas) and our wine tasting. On top of a great deli and great wood-fired pizzas, they also have a store selling homemade candy and gellato.
