We chose the pairings lunch at St Francis after the excellent reviews and a few comments from industry contacts. Despite the big build up and high expectations it did not disappoint!

Great pairings and just the right level of explanation… not too little, and not so much as to be boring for newbies to wine up to mid-level knowledge regular visitors to wine country. (I suspect they could have geeked out to a WSET crowd, but tailored it to the audience).

We left feeling good, and felt it was a good value in spite of the price, and would happily recommend it to friends.

This was our first visit to Kendall-Jackson in Sonoma. We were referred by a friend. We were treated like royalty by Scott at our table for two. We tasted excellent wines paired with equally excellent food from the chef and team. Very well done. One of the highlights of our weekend stay in Sonoma County.

No way to describe the experience other than incredible.

Great service-so sorry I cannot remember the name of who helped and served us, but he was awesome and extremely kind and attentive. Five plus stars to him any my sincerest apology for not remembering his name.

I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the tasting lunch, and a tasting experience at St Francis.

This is our second or third time here, and I will go back any time I am in Napa or Sonoma Valleys. Cheers!!!!

Excellent wine and food pairing experience. We had 5 courses that were tailored to the wine they served. My favorite was the 2016 Merlot paired with a Pan Seared Salmon. Most people know that red wines usually don’t pair with seafood, but in this case it worked.

Each course was better than the last. It was near my birthday and by coincidence they served all my favorites, all paired with outstanding wines. The room is beautiful with views of the vineyards in fall colors. My only complaint is that they placed two of our party at the adjacent table meant for four, at the head of the room. it felt like they were the featured speakers and also felt like they were a little removed from our group. Not a huge deal but worth mentioning.

The setting on the patio overlooking the gardens, vineyards and mountains in the background is very nice. The food was simply fantastic. The Chef uses some unusual ingrediants and produces exciting flavors (i.e.: pea vine, celery root puree, pickled butternut squash). The combinations of flavors with the wine is excellent. We will attempt to steal some of his dishes to make at home. As normal, St. Francis reserve wines are incredible. Our waiter/sommelier was very nice and poured some additional reserve wines for us. The reserve Zinfandel is lovely. I would go back in a heart beat to do this tasting and food experience again.

We were at the vineyard for a 5 course meal with wine pairings. It was fabulous! Each course was delicious. The courses and wine were presented by our hostess with a detailed description of each. At the end of the meal, the chef came out to say hello. I definitely would recommend this offering!

We have been to several pairings. They are all wonderful. We were a little surprised given the great weather that this pairing was held indoors. The other aspect which was a bit surprising was that groups were paired together, unlike how it has been done outdoors in the past. Not a big deal, but perhaps not exactly what some couples were looking for.
