This is an amazing two hour experience at a beautiful winery. If you enjoy great food and wonderful wine, don't miss this. Though I had heard of St. Francis wines, I hadn't tasted any before. I liked them so much, I joined their wine club. We started the event with a glass of rose and a walk around their garden... More

You must do this! We reserved the 11 am wine and food pairing experience. A table of 16 people sit in a private room and get a 6 course small bite plates and the appropriate wine pairing. The food was wonderful, especially the dessert hot chocolate with marshmallow and raspberries! Our designated driver didn't drink and enjoyed the experience as... More

Visited St. Francis this past Sunday, as we were real excited to finally see this beautiful winery and try their wines. The older gal who helped us was pleasant at first and insisted on tasting each wine before serving us, for quality control as we went down the lineup of current available wines. Two things happened that made this experience... More

Dropped into St Francis mid-March on a Sunday for a tasting. This is an amazing facility, with beautiful expansive groups that are immaculately maintained. We were greeted warmly by a nice woman who was very knowledgeable, but seemed to be very interested in explaining how picky sheer was about the tasting experience and the wine. I did find it interesting... More

How does one define "perfection"? Can it ever be attained? These highly philosophical questions finally found their answer as I participated in the St Francis Food & Wine pairing. It was by far the highlight of our Napa/ Sonoma trip: what can I say? No adequate description comes to my mind besides, as I already pointed out, PERFECTION!!!!

Had an absolutely wonderful experience! Foods were paired to the wine instead of the other way around at restaurants. The menu is farm to table with some of the produce grown in their own organic garden. Even though it's rated #1 on Open Table this isn't what I would call a restaurant. The menu is set with no varying, except... More

Recommended by family members we made reservations for the wine and food pairing after the holidays. This was the highlight of our 5 day trip to Sonoma County. Located on Highway 12, Santa Rosa, St. Francis Winery is easy to get to. This was our first formal wine and food pairing and it was worth every penny. Check the web... More

The SF wine is great, especially the Whites. You can do a food pairing there that is expensive, but the best around. Very nice and helpful associates at SF. we purchased three bottles and will be back again. One of the best wineries in the area.

My mother and I recently had a late lunch wine/food pairing at St Francis and it was wonderful! The food was incredible- perfect portions, creative and delicious. The wines were perfectly paired with the dishes. The host was informative and got the group to interact with one another- making it really fun. The chef came out at the end and... More
