My boyfriend and I came up to Sonoma for the day and chose to start at St. Francis Winery. Not only were the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the wine was excellent. We chose a Chardonnay--bought a bottle and just sat out on their patio to drink. It was such a beautiful area and had amazing views.

Great place!!! The scenery was beautiful, the wines were pleasant and food was tasty. The place was a little busy so the service was a little slow but the weather and scenery was fantastic so it didn't matter.

I love their summer movie series - bring a blanket, picnic and buy a bottle of wine from the tasting room. Great way to spend a summer evening, although there seems to be fewer and fewer each year (only 2 this year)....check out the schedule on their website - some movies are appropriate for kids, others not....good live music before

Recently my husband and I stopped for a tasting at St. Francis Winery and, once inside, decided to sit on the beautiful patio overlooking a beautiful lawn and gardens, and have "Plates and Flights". The plate of cheeses and meats was delicious and the wines also very good. We had a lovely time. Bathrooms are clean and very accessible. There... More

OMG. So we drove by St-Francis and decided to stop in unexpectedly. We arrived 15 minutes before their 1pm lunch seating and there happened to be 2 cancellations so we joined the group of 16 for an intimate 5-course meal with wine pairing. Best. Lunch. Ever. Amazing experience. Will do it again !

Coming from New Zealand we didn't realise how close we were to wineries when we went to Santa Rosa for Russian River Brewery. So I picked a close by winery to try some Californian wines and we could not have picked a more magical spot. We weren't sure what to expect as we walked in but the hosts could not... More

We had a great experience here!!! The staff and location were wonderful! The wine was some of the best we have ever tasted. The service made us feel special and not like just another warm body. Allen did a great job and definitely needs a raise.
