Nestled at the foot of Mt. Hood, St. Francis has earned national acclaim for its food-and-wine pairings. With its red-tile roof and dramatic bell tower, the winery's California Mission–style visitor center occupies one of Sonoma's most scenic locations. The charm of the surroundings is matched by the wines, most of them red, including rich, earthy Zinfandels from the Dry Creek, Russian River, and Sonoma valleys. Chef David Bush's five-to-seven-course small bites and
wine pairings ($50)—bouillabaisse with a mellifluous Cabernet Franc, for example—are offered from Thursday through Monday; pairings with cheeses and charcuterie ($30) are available daily.
