St. Francis Winery & Vineyards
St. Francis Winery & Vineyards is located just east of the city of Santa Rosa on scenic, gently winding Highway 12. The winery and its surrounding grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and serene – natural landscaping and acres of well-manicured vineyards surround the mission-like buildings.
