We tried their food and wine pairing and I must say its the best dining experience we've had. Every dish was so beautiful and delicious and every wine to go with it was so carefully chosen. A "must" experience for those visiting the wine country. After a lovely meal, you can walk through their vineyards and enjoy the scenery!

My boyfriend and I agreed that this was one of the top three dining experiences we've ever had. The vineyard is beautiful and is situated in the middle of a lush landscape of grape vines and verdant rolling hills. There is a nice tasting room right when you enter the building if you're just there for the wine. Fortunately we... More

We booked a Wine Pairing Luncheon at St Francis expecting the usual cheeses and meats .......well let me tell you, that was not the case! This was a gourmet foodies delight! Simply amazing food presentations perfectly paired with the beautiful wines. This was by far one of the best and most memorable dining experiences of our lives. Imagine Smoked Beets,... More

Got there late in the day and the tasting room was busy but the hosts were warm and friendly and made every effort to welcome us promptly and accommodate us right away. Very pretty outdoor terrace area overlooking the vineyard and wish we had gotten there earlier to experience more. Nice wines, affordable, knowledgeable hosts, overall a good experience.

My parents have visited here and raved about it and encouraged us to come when we were in town. They were right. Excellent wines, very, very nice. The winery is lovely, the patio divine. We did a paired tasting with a meat/cheese tray and it was delicious. The back patio is reserved for people doing the tasting….but others will mill... More

If you are only able to do one thing in Wine Country, I highly recommend doing a food and wine pairing. At St. Francis Winery it is more than incredible. A 5 course pairing with portions large enough that you won't need another meal. And the food and wines were outstanding. This is truly a gourmet experience. Voted the #1... More

Eight members of our family shared the fantastic food and wine pairing meal at St. Francis Winery. There were only 16 guests total seated in two semi circles facing eachother in the lovely dining room overlooking the beautiful vineyards and mountains. Our menu consisted of 5 courses of superbly prepared food matched to five very fine St. Francis vintages. The... More

Let's be honest: No "great" experience ever lives up to its hype the second time you experience it. For example, the second time I was in NYC and saw the lights at Times Square, they just did not seem to be as bright anymore. The second time I was in Rome, the Coliseum seemed to have lost a little of... More

What a great visit. Ask for Karen. She's extremely knowledgable and takes the time to explain the different wines and the total wine experience. She also was polite enough to recommend a few other vineyards based on the tastes we have her. Highly recommended.
