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.

Worth the price. The staff is friendly, the setting is gorgeous, the food expertly prepared and the wine was good (I'm not a wine drinker, and I enjoyed them). I look forward to returning.

The building and grounds are very nice and well kept up with a simple gift buying area amongst the tasting room. The wine is quite awful tasting in my opinion. No one in my group enjoyed their wine, in fact the group next to us had to keep spitting out their wine. They advertise a food and wine pairing which... More

We went with group of 6 people, They took us to small tours to their vegetable garden/herb garden, followed by visit to vineyards and we tasted both white and red wine. Well maintained vineyard. Very nice and informative tour. Tour guides were very friendly and made us felt like part of their family. We will surely come back here.

An excellent view, an excellent service and a pleasant staff make your stay and the wine taste a wonderful experience. All the winery and vineyards story in a few minutes and a couplet dishes that feet it perfect with the wine that you are served make a beautiful day for you. At the final you will be glad to buy...
