We had a wonderful tasting with Ronnie - he shared the standard tasting menu and then also gave us tastings of several wines that he thought we might like based on our tastes. This was a real winner - the wine was fantastic and if you walk onto the lawn, the view is incredible. We ordered a wine flight and... More

I've been with my wife at S-Francis Winery in Sonoma. I took the food and wine pairing. Limited seating only 16 persons total. The winery personnel was very friendly. Before we went to the Lunch of 11h00 am, they offered us a glass of Sauvignon to make us wait prior to lunch. Once installed at the table, we had an... More

We had a very good wine tasting experience here using our Visa Signature card for free tastings. They were very accommodating and have some outstanding wines. We particularly liked the Zinfandel. This is a vineyard worth stopping at.

Somewhat busy, we sat outside they were congenial and polite. Did not seem as had enough time for us as those sitting at the bar which was full of patrons. Pleasant experience over all. Their flights ran ten dollars, which seemed a give away compared to other wineries . Return ? Yes Recommend. Yes.

There is truly not a more beautiful place to visit or get married in the Sonoma Wine Country! The exquisite lavender fields that surround the vineyard and the lovely hillside back drop -- in one word -- breathtaking! Our friends and family were absolutely blown away by the this gorgeous wedding venue. The food is amazing, the service is second... More

Beautiful grounds and excellent service. Wine was fantastic. Can't wait to receive my first wine club shipment. Carol (I believe her name was) was very helpful and explained us all about them. We discovered that we really like Zinfandel. Yum

We've enjoyed excellent food and wine pairings before, but never one more thoughtful or more attuned to bringing out the range of tastes in food and wine equally. Since the menu changes on a rolling basis according to the wines that become available (a new course is rotated in roughly once each week) there's not to be gained from singling... More

The food and wine pairing lunch was amazing. The chef has managed to make each ingredient be able to stand alone. The staff was knowledgeable of each pour. This was one of the best dining experiences ever.

We arrived at St. Francis not expecting much. We hadn't heard a lot about the wines, other than the fantastic wine and food pairing that they put together. We stopped in and, luckily, got hooked with Dean James for a tasting in their beautiful tasting room. Dean was the consummate host and breathed life into the stories behind each bottle... More
