Fabulous! I love the wine and food pairing lunches at St. Francis Winery. The food is exceptional and artfully presented. I wish I lived closer. I'd go every week if I could. The quality, presentation, and taste of the food are right up there with Michelin-stared restaurants.

Our first visit to wine country and great reviews lured us into the lunch pairing at St. Francis. And we are happy that we made this a stop on our tour. The grounds are incredible. With a gorgeous, sunny, 60 degree day, the heated outdoor seating with vineyards and mountain as a backdrop were magnificent.

The service was impeccable and the various wines were we were able to experience were masterfully selected.

The ONLY complaint (and it is submitted playfully) is that the food is SO good, you'll definitely want more. Unfortunately they only prepare enough for the reservations they have. (St. Francis definitely embraces the "leave them wanting more" mantra.....we definitely did.)

Make sure this winery is on your list!!!

Beautiful day in wine country California. Color in the vineyards. Tasty food paired with delicious wines. Oysters Rockefeller, crisp pork belly sliders, with a chocolate brownie closer topped with pomegranate cream.

Memorable!

The food was good, but not as good as the larger wine and food pairings (and perhaps my expectations) of the last event I attended. Still fun and a reasonably good value.

I chose this winery because of the ambiance and stellar reputation of the food/wine pairing. It did not disappoint and went perfectly with the wines. I had spent a couple of days at neat wineries and didn’t realize this was seated with other people where we had been the ones appointment each time. I’m a very punctual person and felt terrible we were a few minutes late but caught up to the group in the first course as best we could. The hostess at the entryway was less than thrilled as our first welcome to the establishment but the hosts of the lunch were great. I would definitely recommend this place for the food and wine.

My friend and I are Club members and we love St. Francis. This was the most fabulous pairing I’ve had in the past six years. The service was top notch too. We enjoyed meeting guests from around the country and it was great to meet the chef as well!!

Did the estate pairing and it was perfect. We had a beautiful view of the vineyard and Sonoma Valley mountains. Wine was very good as well. We bought two bottles to bring home. We also went in October, which is near the end of harvest, but there were some grapes still on the vine which I thought was so awesome. They tasted very good

Best winery ever!
The service, people, food and the whole experience was wonderful.
My husband and I was there for our 20th anniversary, and we are still taking about it. The view of the mountains and the vineyard will take your breath away. If your in Sonoma and have time, it's a must visit.

Far and away best wine and food pairing in wine country…best if planned as a meal since it’s a decent amount of food. All the wines are great from white to red to dessert…really can’t miss and for the price a value. Join the wine club so you get a discount…we’ve been club members for 16+ years!

We did the estate pairing for lunch, seated outdoors. Chef Peter Janiak creates four flavorful dishes to pair perfectly with the St Francis wines. The first course featured the Blanc De Noir which is not a favorite of mine, paired with Oysters Rockefeller which is also not a favorite for me. Together - wonderful. My favorite course was the Sherry-Soy Glazed Pork Belly Slider paired with a Dry Creek Zin. The next time we're in town we want to do the larger "seasonal pairing" which is seven courses. This chef is a star.

Beautiful scenery, enjoying an outdoor estate tasting paired with 4 small bites. Food was excellent, would have loved to have done the 5 course lunch but it was booked. Server was knowledgeable, would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the sights with another glass of wine, but alas we had to get to our next tasting. Would love to go back to be able to do so.

Outstanding setting. Unbelievable views of the mountains and the vines. The wine was good. It was a little hot so I would have preferred to not have a port wine as one of the four samples. The food was very creative and it was good.
