This was our first visit to the tasting room and we really enjoyed it. The wines are all very good but the staff made it a memorable experience talking about the wines and the area. We would definitely visit again.

Came here on Christmas Eve day. One of the few wineries that were open. It's $10/flight for their reserve wines (excellent) and $20 for their exclusive wine flights. The two people pouring no were warm and friendly and certainly knew their wines. There also are many things to buy that would be nice gifts including cookbooks. The house is beautiful... More

I arrived at Sonoma County airport and Kendall Jackson Winery is very nearby. I wanted to try their wine and food pairing and arrived just a few minutes late for the last food pairing of the day but Kaitlyn was super and got me in. Being a solo traveler and end of day they could have rushed me through but... More

Have been a fan of K-J wines for a while and joined their wine club, attended the September Heirloom Tomato & Wine fest -- a must see in Sonoma--the building and gardens are lovely. The Heirloom Fest is not to be missed -- food samplings from so many great restaurants and companies and K-J wines! I continue to be blown... More

It's a truism that having wine with food enhances the experience of both. Yet, the wine-tasting experience usually is all wine, no food (except for sometimes crackers or breadsticks to help clear the palate.) So on our recent trip to the Sonoma Valley, we wanted to experience a real food/wine pairing. We picked Kendall-Jackson for a couple of reasons. First,... More

This winery shows you variety of grapes and its wines via a garden with samples, pretty educational. You could actually pick them and taste it. Please DO NOT take the whole batch, just some for your instant tasting. The vineyard looks great and wine tasting cost is reasonable, $10/person. It's right off Hwy 101, very convenient. Highly recommend.

We had booked a Garden tour but discovered when we arrived that a wine pairing luncheon was offered. We sampled six wines paired with gourmet prepared tapas. A wonderful way to enjoy the best of what this estate offers. Extraordinarily informative staff offers hospitality I had only seen displayed in the deep South. Beautiful gardens surround this estate and lend... More

We participated in the farm to table experience and it was the highlight of our trip! When you enter you are offered a glass of wine and appetizers (fresh oysters, fresh veggies out of the gardens that surround you, a variety of cheese from a featured cheese maker), there was also a musician singing, and the opportunity to see the...

We expected great wine at this winery but was surprised by the beautiful gardens. It made the trip all the more enjoyable. Catherine was a server at the sampling who was very knowledgeable of the wines and made it a pleasant experience.
