                  Best wine experience so far. We are novice wine drinkers but we really understood it through this experience. Both wine and food were good by themselves and when they complimented each other it was really neat.

                  Such a cool, unique Sonoma activity. Tasty bites paired with seven complementary wines. Chef John creates some truly, unique and delicious items mapped to the season. Anne and the crew always provide friendly service with great wine intros. Awesome deal, especially if you're a Mayo wine club member.

                  Amazing experience, everyone was so nice and generous wine pours! I would highly recommend. The food pairing I would consider a very light lunch, but delicious!

                  The Reserve room is my highest recommendation for a great wine and food pairing. I had some recent vegetarian guests and Chef John did a special menu. Afterwards they told me it was the best food ever. (Says a lot from Chicago foodies.) Not to mention the delicious small lot wines. The Best. Nancy Travis, WineGrl Tours

                  A repeat visit to introduce our special friends to our favorite pairing experience. They are "seasoned" foodies and wine lovers. Everything was matched beautifully with diverse flavors, introduction of seasonal ingredients and the thoughtfulness behind each pairing. Each of seven dishes were presented with artistic and creative flair. We have introduced many of our friends and family to the Reserve Room experience over the years, always to rave reviews. The chef and staff are warm, welcoming and skilled professionals. We have had pairings at other wineries and this remains our favorite! Kudos to all the care and passion evident in each sip and bite! Thank you for another memorable and highly crafted experience!

                  Fabulous pairing of food and wines. My favorite was the Grenache but my friends preferred the reds, especially the Pinot noir. Cora and John the chef explained in detail the history of Mayo, the menu etc.

                  Once again Mayo wine/food pairing with the accomplished chef John Locher outdid itself. Innovative, elegant, and delicious cuisine. If you have only 1 day to experience Sonoma Wine Country I’d do the tasting here. The food wine and ambiance is explain for wine country lifestyle.

I am so impressed: 1) that they offer a sustainable, climate friendly and cruelty free option and 2) that this option is absolutely delicious and was paired to perfection. Highly recommend Mayo reserve

                  Everything about about the Mayo Reserve Room was incredible! The staff is the most knowledgeable and invested in their products/business than any of the other places we’ve visited in the area. I love how they do a true customized food pairing with each of their wine samples and are more than accommodating to food allergies/sensitivities. I would go back everyday.

                  Absolutely our most amazing wine experience! The chef was wondering, pairing each item with the perfect wine, all while providing information about the grapes and food used. Highly recommend, definitely experience this next time. Thank you Mayo Family!!

                  Amazing as always! This was the first time we came often enough to enjoy the same menu twice and we found even more to love.

                  My experience was fabulous. The noise level was bothersome at first then the large table left and it was fine. Our server Anne was amazing……a wealth of knowledge in the best way. She was funny and definitely relatable. The way she shared her info regarding the Mayo Family Story was really interesting and heartfelt. I brought my daughter and her friend who were visiting from Los Angeles and are both 27. They had a great time. All the wine and most of the food was superb. Will definitely plan another trip.

                  Food pairings were excellent! They were larger than expected, 2-3 bites each, and satiating. Service was great! We loved Anne’s expressiveness and passion when she spoke of the wine. VJ had a wonderful sense of humor and everyone’s goal was to make sure we had a good time.
