This was one of several wineries that we enjoyed. Not because it was unique, (It was the same old "Pay us"), but because we enjoy this wine. If you din't like St. Francis, skip this.

I really wanted to do the wine and food pairing but our schedule was too tight to commit to a reservation. Instead we did the cheese and wine tasting out on the patio which does not require an appointment. It was fantastic! The view from...More

In California wine country there are countless places to sample wines. But how do you know how that wine pairs with food? St. Francis Winery takes that question to the ultimate degree - by hosting wine-paired luncheons. Chefs design courses (there are 5) around specific...More

The property is lovely. Wonderful staff. The tasting gives you an opportunity to try several of their outstanding wines. But consider doing the wine and food pairing experience. They don't do it every day, and it is mid-day. Well worth. Absolutely fabulous food - five...More

I only have a small sample size of 6 Sonoma wineries, but this was one of the top two that I went to. The wine and food pairing is a must, and is totally worth it at $70 a person. I also thought their wines...More

I think the wine pairing experience at St. Francis Winery would be a wonderful experience for you. It is priced at $68 per person for a five course meal (small plates) paired with wine to enhance the taste of the wine.
