“Don't Miss the Bubble Room At J Winery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We've been visiting wine country for over a decade. Several years ago someone recommended J Winery & the Bubble Room to us. The tasting room is very nice, both fun and lively, but the food & wine pairing in the Bubble Room is extra special. The room is set up like a living/dining area and available by reservation only, which gives you a little peace and quiet, as well as some style and elegance. You may sit at a dining table with other visitors or on the sofas. Plan on your visit lasting approximately 2 hours. The food and the wines are divine, particularly the sparkling. The staff is wonderful and Liz & Steve took great care of us. We always make a point to congratulate the chef on a job well done. We love it so much we became wine club members on the first visit. We never go to wine country without a trip to the Bubble Room. It's totally worth it. A shout out to Dana and Willie who are always fun to see year after year!

“Reserve in Advance for The Bubble Room ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Enjoyed a food and wine pairing in the Bubble Room in early November 2013. Although it's a bit pricey at $75 per person, the guided food and wine pairing, along with the personalized service was worth the expense. A great cross section of sparkling wine, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir were featured with some tasty and well prepared food items. Made appointment for lunchtime which was perfect for a luncheon experience. Highly recommend.

“If you want to feel special, book a tasting in the Bubble Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

My sister-in-law is a sparkling wine fan and I love food and wine pairings. Our husbands wanted a quiet relaxed place to taste wine. The Bubble Room was Perfect.

We arrived early and the tasting room was crazy busy but as soon as we identified we were there for The Bubble Room, we were warmly welcomed and given a glass of wine. We didn't wait long. The food and wine pairing was wonderful. It was educational, delicious, relaxing, and very special.

Highly recommend.

“Rude!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The man who waited on us, Michael put his nose up in the air and acted like we were low life's for requesting that we try only two wines, we did not want to purchase a "flight"...we simply did not want that much wine as we were interested in specific wine only and had a full day of tasting planned. The wine here is great and I realize that is where the focus of a review should be however Michael was pretentious and treated us poorly and he bad mouthed their neighbor, Rodney Strong Vineyards, we found that very unprofessional. Just because your wine is good does not mean that it gives you permission to look down on others or act judgmental. We were treated VERY well at all of the other wineries we visited today, this establishments customer service was less than desirable.

“Pretentious”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We came because we heard about the Bubble room food and wine pairing. Our schedule didn't work out perfectly, so we decided we'd rather enjoy the beautiful patio with a tasting. The man who initially helped us acted like we were below commoners for requesting that we wanted to enjoy one glass of their wine or cuvée on the beautiful patio rather than a tasting. Heaven forbid we enjoy spending any money other than a food pairing. I have to admit the wine is great, but I'd recommend spending your time and enjoyment at Chalk, Pride or Scribe. Too pretentious for Sonoma!! These people belong in napa.
