We stopped there and had pizza and amazing ribs with a glass of Prosecco and Chardonnay in the courtyard! Beautiful! The staff was exceptional and then went back 2 days later and did a wine tasting! Jarod was outstanding and we ordered wine to ship home, met the owner and had a great experience both visits.

So wonderful to see how VJB grew to an Italian villa with piazza from the small espresso/wine tasting bar I visited three summers ago. Was so happy to see Vittorio again and it was delicious experience tasting ribs from the grill and the "winter" wines.

My wife and I loved this winery and would definitely go back if we return to the Sonoma area. We had a tasting out on the Piazza, which I would recommend on a nice day, and they offered us 5 different wines (I believe) to taste. The owner and founder is originally from Italy and he was their working the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We love to hear what you loved about your visit! The margherita pizza was an excellent choice as we make the mozzarella in house daily so it's always fresh! Also, you will be happy to know that we will be releasing our Brunello in about 2 months! In fact, as... More

We love VJB! I first tasted their wines around 12 years ago and instantly became a member. VJB is family owned and operated. Staff and family are friendly and helpful. They have created a new tasting room and Italian courtyard a couple of years ago so you can go and spend the afternoon pretending you are in the Tuscan countryside.... More

I loved my first trip to Sonoma and the wineries we visited, however I missed the food parings we enjoyed at many Wineries we've visited in Italy. Our tour guide made my wish come true. This is a family owned winery/ restaurant/ shop. Entering the courtyard I was reminded of Tuscany, although clearly a newer version. The deli was full... More

It's so great to hear how much you enjoyed your visit! We love that you felt like you were in Italy when you arrived - that is exactly what we want our guest to experience! Many of our locals come here and say "we are pretending to be on vacation in Italy!" Yes, you are correct, we do import our... More

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
