Good wines but very sneaky people. They'll mislead you to spend more money than what you intend to, and then act like it was your problem....

We were told about VJB by Arrowood Winery as a good lunch spot. True it is! However, their wines are awesome and a fair value in this region. Their Sangiovese is excellent

Staff was attentive and they took great care of our group of 16. They preprinted the menus with our friends name and a happy birthday wish. Lots of fun. They also gave us a great deal on the wine and the shipping cost was very reasonable.

We discovered VJB Cellars two and a half years ago while staying in Kenwood for a few days. The wines are Italian style wines...the staff is always gracious and take time to explain the different wines and let us enjoy the tasting experience. We bought our wine case shipper from them and always fill it up when visiting Sonoma County.

Nine of us visited the VJB vineyards over the Thanksgiving weekend as part of a special wine tour. Among the five wineries we visited, this was indeed the best one (in my opinion). I love the grounds and the hospitality of all the employees. The Preseco was amazing! I bought four bottles!!

The VJB winery produces some great red wines. We were lucky enough to have Mike Nichols, the tasting room manager, oversee our tasting experience. He was informative, entertaining, generous, and made sure we had a great time. Highly recommend the wines and also try their pizza cooked in an outdoor brick oven. Very good time overall.
