The food and wines were excellent. The host seemed unprepared and read from a script. We were hoping for an explanation of how the food parings gave the wines their flavor. We were basically told about what we were eating and what the wine was.
I would definitely recommend.
Alan_R, Aug 2021
The wine was delicious. The pairing was on point. The wine complimented the food perfectly. We will definitely be back.

A wonderful surprise!

Our host, Kevin, was informative and warm (despite being a Yankee fan!😂) He offered excellent wines paired to perfection with delicious food. Upon discovering my penchant for bubbles, he even provided an extra bubbly bonus. What a fun experience! Please treat yourself and visit!

Joe was an amazing host. He was very informative and spent plenty of time discussing each wine. The food that came with it was great. I was worth every penny and the wines were great. It made for a wonderful day.
Just Wonderful!!

My wife and I had a great time! The wine was the best that we tasted during our 4 days in Sonoma and food pairings were right on target. Highly recommend this tasting.

milband, Aug 2014
Healdsburg is a great little town, and BONUS!! Also home to one of my favorite breweries, Bear Republic, which is walking distance from this tasting. Williamson Wines is a great little tasting facility, and the food pairings were phenomenal. Would recommend this to anyone who has not yet had the pairing experience, it is well worth it. Quality of food and wines is outstanding. Thanks for a great tasting experience!!

This was a great experience. We were expecting maybe some cheese and fruit to pair with our wine and instead got actual cooked food like chili and duck! Our host was super knowledgable and clearly passionate about what he does. I wish I lived closer so I could visit more often!

Trina Tron, Jan 2014
The Legacy Tasting was way above and beyond the average wine tasting experience! Not only was every taste expertly paired with delicious bites, but our host, Reese, was on hand to walk us through every varietal and why the components of each dish made it so complementary to the wine. He didn't rush us, spending a good amount of time talking about the tastes and answering our questions, all without the slightest air of pretentiousness. The winemakers, Bill and Dawn, also greeted us before the tasting and stopped in occasionally to add more insight on the wines and their favorite recipes to pair them with. The pours were generous and numerous and the food plentiful! After getting our fill of great wine, food and pairing knowledge, we walked out with our favorite bottle (the rose will surprise you!) and headed straight to the market for dinner ingredients to go with it. My boyfriend and I (and likely a few friends) will surely be back to try the Icon Tasting next with the reserve wines.

We enjoyed the wine tasting and food pairing. One had the opportunity to learn about the wines and taste the food that can be served with the wine. The attendant was knowledgeable, friendly, and generous in his servings. We had a great experience. THANKS
