    Highlight of our Sonoma trip! The wine pairing experience at St Francis Winery was incredible. Our group of 4 was part of 16 guests who enjoyed 5 delicious courses accompanied by 5 wines served individually. The table settings & glassware added to the event. After ‘dinner’ the chef explained selection process. Although pricey at $125 pp, The experience was worth the splurge in our opinion. Several locals were repeats. Highly recommend.

    Instead of individual food plates as in the past, one plate is set in the middle of the table and it’s help yourself and there’s only enough for 2 maybe 3 bites per person. There were 2 vegetable samples and one beef slider. At $70/person it’s expensive for what you get.

    Highly recommend the wine & food pairing. Our group of 4 was seated with about 20 other people at tables shaped into a circle. We were served 5 dishes - starting with a watermelon tomato salad. This was followed by a cavatelli pasta with sage sausage, a duck dish, then a ny steak with a truffle Demi glacé. The grand finale was a chocolate pan a cotta. Between each dish the hosts explain the food dishes & the wine that will accompany each dish. All the food was outstanding. You will definitely enjoy your time at St. Francis.

    St Francis offers one of the best wine+food pairing experiences in the wine country. The view is phenomenal especially if you go in the summer when the lavender is in bloom. You are basically getting a full Michelin star experience for a very reasonable price and a $million view.

    This was one of our best experiences in wine country. We were sat outside on the covered patio and were seated shortly after arriving. Our host was wonderful and did not rush us. The food pairings were excellent. I could say much more but in summary, would definitely visit again. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

    The wine pairings are a wonderful experience in a lovely setting. We attend every time we visit Santa Rosa and are never disappointed. Always a new taste discovery and we always find a new wine to add to the cellar. Great for couples or groups. Put this on your list of must do's, you'll be glad you did.

We were seated out on their beautiful patio looking out towards their vineyard. Everything was absolutely amazing with outstanding service & delicious food offerings and great wine pairings. Job well done St Francis Winery. Highly recommend.

    We love coming to St Francis for the wine and food pairing and have been coming for over 10 years and seen multiple chefs. This last visit was below expectations and the first time we didn't purchase any wine to take home. While the chef was very nice and personable the food lacked the same level of creativity we've seen over the years and felt pretty normal /basic menu wise - watermelon salad, a soggy pasta/pizza riff, seared salmon (slightly dry/overcooked), steak and grits (a bit tough), and chocolate pana cotta. It was fine, but not worth the price paid or what we've experienced from other St. Francis Chefs / pairings.

    The food and wine pairing was absolutely incredible. The food was some of the best we’ve had, and we have extremely high standards and a five star rating is rarely given by us. The wine was fabulous and we look forward to having our first wine club shipment arrive. We highly recommend this experience, it’s well worth the the cost for a wonderful experience in a gorgeous setting.

    We had a reservation, and were seated as soon as we arrived. Seating was outside, in a shaded area next to one of the estate vineyards, beautiful, pleasant and quiet. The wine was very good, and it was paired with dishes that were well made, tasty, and nicely presented. Service was attentive but not pushy, and adapted itself to our pace. I liked that they brought new glasses for each new wine, so we could keep sniffing and tasting the earlier wines all through the experience. Great experience overall.
