We arrived at VJB as a large group (9 people). The wine was phenomenal, it was great to hear about the story beyond each varietal. Bo was very knowledgeable and attentive. We left VJB with a large order (all the logistics handled for us) plus several jars of homemade pasta sauce! We became members and we will be back!

VJB Cellars was perfect for our first winery this year. The ambiance was amazing, and the wine was excellent. Henry, the Owner was busy greeting everyone on the piazza, nestled between the market / wine tasting room and the winery. Everyone with whom we interacted was like family and some of them are. We signed up for a membership and are enjoying our first shipment. We enjoyed VJB so much we went to Henry's other winery the next day - Wellinton which is right down the road. The ambiance and wines are different but equally great. We even saw Henry there as well as a familiar face from the previous day at VJB's

Had a wonderful lunch! Had a pizza, a flatbread and a charcuterie board. All good, but the pizza was amazing. Nice wine selection too.

We had an excellent wine tasting at VJB! Our sever, Sebastian, was very knowledgeable about the wines and was very pleasant. All of the wines we tasted were excellent. We met other members of the VJB team and they were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The wine was so good that I joined the wine club and looking forward to our first shipment!

Hi Karen, Thank you for reviewing my family's winery! I am proud to hear about your positive experience and hope you enjoyed your wine tour. The gelato shop is a big hit, especially with the summer heat, so I am glad you were able to try that while you visited! Any time you find yourself in the area we would love to host you again!

The quality of the wines and prosecco are superior. The service is excellent. This is why I decided to become a club member.

This is a lovely winery, and we enjoyed our stop there on the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley. There isn't much here for vineyards/grounds to walk around, but there is a small area outside the restaurant. It's a gorgeous setting, giving you a Tuscan vibe.

The wines were tasty, and our server was very knowledgeable. We also had gelato, which was an added bonus. There is a little shop where you can buy various foods like interesting pastas and other gourmet items. Overall, a really great stop and a lovely time.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! We are happy to be a stop throughout the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley experience, and I'm glad you got to join us along the way. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your experience, and were able to pick up on the effort we took to make the winery feel like a piece of Itay! As you mentioned, we have so much to offer at VJB Cellars, however, most of our vines are located at our brother property, Wellington Cellars! They specialize in French varietals and are home to our production facility for both properties. Again, thank you for spending a part of your day with us, we hope to host you again soon! Salute, Henry Belmonte Owner

This winery was gorgeous! The wines were amazing they had something everyone would enjoy. The safe was my favorite part. They were all so nice and friendly. We were there to celebrate a Birthday and everyone sent over Birthday wishes. VJB Cellars is a wonderful and welcoming place!

VJB was the very first vineyard of many we visited on our trip this month. And it is by far our favorite
The people were amazing and friendly! The wine and food fantastic!. We took my parents to Napa for their 60th wedding anniversary and what a memorable trip. We loved the wine so much that we are now 1/4ly case members. Can wait for my first shipment. Thank you VJB!
