Of all the wine club memberships we have had over the years, VJB is the one we kept. Family run. Excellent staff. Tenor’s sing on weekends, Gelato, Pizza oven. Deli. Only winery where you can have a full afternoon of fun, without surviving off dry breadsticks.

My brother loved this place, so the day after his funeral we went here to be somewhere he loved. The buildings are beautiful and inviting, but it's the staff that really make this place. Everywhere you go the staff are smiling and they don't seem to be putting it on.....they seem genuinely happy to be there and happy to take... More

The staff was very accommodating, as we arrived late on a rainy day and ordered food. Unaware of the closing time, we were allowed to order food and eat while tasting. In the end, we joined the wine club. The wines were excellent, as was the entire experience. We returned again, on a sunny day to take pictures. Thank you.

Stopped by on a rainy day. VJB produces great Italian varietals in California soil. Some right here in Sonoma Valley and some a little farther north. Bottom line; I love the wine. Great sandwiches, cheese, great pizza. Central plaza really nice. 2 tasting areas plus one for members. Great service and hospitality from Mike, Anna, and the Belmonte Family. I... More

It is was one of my favorite spots to go for lunch and the ambiances is so breath taking. The staff at VJB is excellent from the line staff to the customer service we received. To our surprise we were able to become bubble members & split the cost between two people.

VJB Wine Tasting with Family and Friends was excellent!! It was our annual wine tasting experience the day after Christmas. We had a great time. Excellent wine and food. The staff at VJB were friendly and professional. We had a large group and felt as if we received personal and individual service.

VJB has the perfect combination of amazing wines, friendly/knowledgeable staff, a location that transports you to Italy and the wood fired ribs are simply off the charts! Combined - it's a real destination!

WOW ... What a fun time we had at VJB with good food, deelish wine, and great people. Not everyone was Italian at this family winery but it sure felt that way with all the warm hospitality. The central courtyard is laid out like an Italian "piazza" with people enjoying food and wine at tables or just strolling about. Walking... More
