OMG! What a great idea! This is a nice little winery, on Hwy 28, in Napa. Apparently they do pairings and, for our visit, it was Cuvee' Blanc & Pumpkin Pie. A beautiful setting, up against the hills. There was a group event, when we were there, but they were in a room next to the lawn. This would be... More

We visited this winery on the way to Sebastopol. We picked it at random, and it was a pretty good choice. It was crowded because it is located on the main road (we were on the way from Napa to Sonoma). We also took some pictures outside (beautiful views of the vineyard and the mountains behind it). Wine tasting costs... More

Very good wine......and the views looking at the the mountain behind the tasting is room is beautiful! I have attended one of their food and wine parings. Worth the cost. Very nice food paired with very nice wine! And the lecture is interesting and engaging. In the warm months it is so nice to sit outside and have a glass... More

We did a wine pairing luncheon and were enchanted throughout the entire 6 course experience. The setting was idyllic and both the food and wine enhanced the feast. Tapas size tastings were perfect for the elaborate meal that tantalized our taste buds and tickled our fancies. Book early a because you do not want to miss this!

My wife & I did the food & wine pairing at St Francis back in February and I would definitely recommend it to others. I thought the wines were just okay but the food was outstanding. We received 5 courses including dessert. First up was a root salad with a Meyer lemon vinagarette served with a viognier. Very tasty. The... More

Reserve a seat for special experience: super small plates, accompanied by 5-6 wines not typically availalble at national retail level. Good commentary and service ( 75-90 minute event) with up to16-20 guests at a time. Nice room and winery facilities.

I live nearby. Taking a guest or visitor to this special place is a treat for me. I am proud of Sonoma County and this friendly neighborhood winery has wonderful events that they host. I belong to their wine club and their wines are very good. Sometimes they run specials which I can buy as gifts. It is in a... More

Been there a few times over the years and it is one of our favorites. The property is beautiful and the wines are great! My husband and I always share a tasting and enjoy a glass on the patio. Also if you have a Visa Signature card the tasting is free!

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
