This was a very pleasant surprise ! A friend told us that in addition to doing wine tasting that VJB also had an outdoor pizza word burning oven and to be sure to stop in around lunchtime. We had no idea we would stay for 3 hours ! It was just terrific ! The owner, Vittorio Belmonte is an awesome host ! We just loved this place !

This is a local winery for us, and we love the new winery, the fabulous wines, the Italian ambiance, and the friendliness of the staff. Their deli offers delicious bites to eat, and we often sneak down for a little trip to Italy, a sip of wine, and something to eat.

Back when I took my then girlfriend at the time (now wife) out to California for her first time 3 years ago, this was the first place we stopped at in the wine country. We fell in love from the moment we walked in. I will never forget Henry when we first walked in, he was one of the most friendliest and warmest individuals we had come across. It also didn’t hurt that he poured us one or two wines that he didn’t have out on the shelves yet. We felt like we could really relate to this place, and when we went back out again on our honeymoon this past August of 2011, we made sure to make this our first stop again! Keep up the great work!

We really were surprised by the great quality of their wine and purchases several bottles. The staff and management are competent and know how to run a business. They have a nice deli where you can buy misc foods, oils etc. we will for sure go back to VJB

This was such a wonderful stop for my husband and I. We had the owner serving us and giving us the history of the winery. We loved ALL of his wines which is never our experience. You must stop when in Somoma and see for yourself!
