About
Wise Villa Winery is the "2015 Golden State Winery of the Year", awarded by the California State Fair, the oldest and one of the largest and most prestigious blind wine competitions in the United States. We are also ranked 3rd highest awarded winery in North America in the 2019 SF Chronicle. Wise Villa Winery has created an elegant European setting in the Foothills of the Sierras. Our estate is set before a backdrop of enchanting scenery amidst breathtaking views of our rolling hills vineyard and the Sacramento Valley.

Our award-winning Tuscan-style bistro and tasting room are at the heart of an internationally themed food and wine pairing experience.

We made reservations for lunch requesting a table outside and quieter. We were seated in the far back next to a fan on a stand. When I mentioned our request I was brushed off. Only on white and two reds by the glass or a wine tasting for $15.. I was told we could order to go but weren't given time to ask any questions. We felt uncomfortable and left.

I Took my wife here for a day on the wine trail, and we started here after breakfast (not knowing they serve food!). Wines were great, food smelled great - this is a great place for couples and dates!

Nice place for dinner with music on a Fri nite.
Aug 2019 • Couples
I have been here many times for wine tasting, and lunch. This review is on a recent dinner on a Fri nite. We came to hear Dominic & Friends - he plays great electric ukulele. We had a 6:30 pm reservation but didn't get seated until after 7 pm. Couples come early for the first set- so our reservation really didn't mean much to the bistro. we were offered a glass of wine for the wait - which we assumed was complementary -- not so. So what started out shaky ended up fine. We were given a front row seat right infront of Dominic- This guys instrumentals are amazing -so i really did care what the food was going to be like. There is a limited dinner menu from this bustling little kitchen. It is amazing what they can put out in such a little kitchen. The roasted Brussel sprouts are really nice and so are the salads. I had the rack of lamb - ( two double loli pops) which were cooked perfectly but nothing else came with the plate - for $ 31. Come here for the view, the setting and the wine which is not bad. I like their Cabs. The music certainly adds to the value - but other wise a little pricey at $ 150 before tip for dinner with a few glasss of wine, no dessert.

Excellent wines in a fabulous setting!
May 2019
We went to Wise Villa 4 years ago and were so impressed with the wines we joined their wine club. We have gone back once a quarter to pick up our selection and always stay for a bite to eat and always buy extra wine due to the great deals on pick-up day. The owner is incredibly kind and knowledgable and is usually on site. His team are energetic and work hard. This place can get really busy so if you go on a weekend and you see 50 other people there, you have to expect wine tasting to go slow. They re-vamped their menu a year or so ago and the new offerings are just perfect for a small bite or a meal. We like the appetizer of small steak bites on a dollop of mashed potatoes and we usually order the charcuterie and a flatbread.

Fine Winery in a Country Location
Mar 2019 • Friends
This winery offers find dining, wine tasting, and wine by the glass/bottle. You can sit inside or there are a few tables outside. It is a quiet setting with grapevines everywhere. You can set up a tour with the owner or just enjoy a quiet afternoon. The wines were awarded numerous medals at the 2019 San Francisco Chronicle Competition. We enjoyed the Artisan for One $15 and the Margarita Flatbread $10. Wines by the glass range from $13 to $15.

A Great Winery
Dec 2018 • Couples
Wise Villa Winery is one of the few local wineries with a restaurant. After one has tasted the wonderful red and white wines you can sit down to a marvelous lunch of small plate items. The chef does an outstanding job preparing the various tasty morsels and they go together well with a glass of wine of your choice. Wise Villa has won the most awards for their wines of any Winery in California. Both their whites and red wines are outstanding. I enjoy taking company there for lunch when the restaurant is open Thursday through Sunday. A real treat. This is one of the views from the restaurant.

Serene Location With A Pleasant Restaurant
Sep 2018 • Friends
Very friendly wait staff greeted us. We walked through the entry way where you can stand and wine taste into the restaurant and sat at the bar area. The restaurant wine staff were very friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed a cheese plate appetizer and wine tasting. Very relaxing. You can dine inside or outside. The view is gorgeous. Be sure to check the open hours to ensure the winery is open. Highly recommend this winery on the Placer County Wine Trail.

Highly recommend it!

While I’m not really a wine drinker, this place has an incredible view. The food is also delicious- I’m especially fond of the steak bites. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and there’s a ton of events such as, creating your own wine, crafts, luau’s, and Lucy grape stomps. They even host weddings and birthday parties. While I haven’t tried the wine yet, I have gotten bottles for my friends who all have nothing but positive things to say about it, and their wine has won multiple awards. If you are looking for a great place to check out- for a date, business dinner, or just to casually taste some wine and relax, I recommend Wise Villa Winery!

Setting is great, wine is good, service is iffy, restaurant is bad
Jul 2018 • Couples
I wish I had read reviews on this place before we went there for lunch. My dad wanted to go there for his birthday. All I can say now is: Never again.

We did the $9 wine tasting before our lunch and it was fine. The young man was very helpful. If we had left right after that we would have been happy. It was the lunch that was so bad.

Our server was nice but it took a long time to get our food and one of our items was really badly made (raw meat) and had to be sent back to the kitchen.

Overall the food portions are very small, very overpriced, and not exceptional.

My advice: 1) Read the reviews before you go. 2) Because the service is so inconsistent and they run out of menu items consistently, don't go for a special meal (birthday, anniversary, etc.) Or, if you like good food, don't go at all.

Beautiful location, but expensive

I really like this winery. The wine is excellent, but high priced. They serve good food, and it's great to sit outside and enjoy the view of the valley.
