The food, wine, setting, staff, chef and other attendees make this a fantastic experience that exceeded our expectations. It's so hard to decide which component stands out the most.

The food was absolutely wonderful. Each component of each dish was great on its own. While these are "tasting" size, the number of courses ....with the wine.....is sufficiently filling. Our first course was a curried squash and falafal. The second course- trout with creamed corn, mushrooms, etc. The third - asian chicked and fried rice. The fourth - short ribs with whipped potatoes etc. And, the finale - cheese and a peanut butter mousse et al.

It was great to be able to talk to the chef and to learn about the wine from the hostess. Each was very warm and hospitable. The setting was classy without being pretentious or stiff. Plus as many tasted each course, whether the food or the wine, you could hear the oohhs and sighs....

We look forward to attending again.

This is the third time visiting this winery, and it always seems to get better. Not only are the wines fantastic, there is definitely something for everyone's taste, but everyone is always so kind and welcoming. This is the second time we'd done a food and wine pairing with Chef Bush, the second being a private dinner after our small wedding ceremony. The food was out of this world good. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the meal, even a few days later. Many said it was the best meal they'd ever had, and I would have to agree with that. For appetizers, we had crab cakes and seared sirloin on crostini. For dinner, we started with the grilled asparagus salad, seared sea bass as main course, gnocchi as a chef's choice, then the chocolate ganache cake to finish. Kelley helped us arange everything and was fantastic. This is a must visit winery, and if you can swing it, try the food and wine dinner (you don't have to do a private dinner to enjoy this, however, the menu is already set, which really doesn't suck one bit!). We will be returning next time we are in Sonoma County!
