We scheduled a food & wine pairing for a change of pace from straight tasting option. When we arrived early the hostess greeted us with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc and said that we could tour the grounds until time for our seating. The grounds were lovely and the wine was very refreshing. There was also an pop up tasting of Merlot Ice Cream made from and sampled with St. Francis merlot which was surprisingly good (the ice cream, we weren't surprised the wine was good). The tasting was terrific. Intimate setting with only 16 people at two half round tables, china and crystal place settings. Started with a salad, followed by salmon plate, then chicken and then steak plate and finally a dessert. Two very attentive and knowledgeable sommeliers guided us through each course. When you look at this on their website you will think that $50 is expensive .. it is not. Trust me this is a full meal and this "tasting" was as good as most pairing "dinner" that we have every tried.
