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

mike was our wine pourer and did a great job. We loved the wines, the setting and the personal service. Don't miss tasting the prosecco, it is fantastic!

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... More

Unlike other wineries, I loved every single tasting! They have a beautiful courtyard with a nice deli. If I were able to visit again, I would buy a bottle of wine and enjoy a pizza made from their wood-burning pizza ovens.

The concierge at the Fairmont recommend this winery after telling her I wanted to visit a unique winery and taste wine I can't get at Costco. It was fantastic. Excellent Italian wines, and great customer service. We met with Jared to taste a few of the varieties. We bought 6 bottles and ended up coming back for lunch which was... More
