For over 50 years, St. Francis Wines have reflected the finest mountain and valley vineyards in Sonoma County. Winery founder Joe Martin fell in love with Sonoma Valley and established St. Francis Vineyard in 1971, planting 22 acres of Chardonnay and the first 60 acres of Merlot in Sonoma Valley.

Today, Winemakers Katie Madigan and Chris Louton, along with Vineyard Director Jake Terrell and Assistant Winemaker Laiza Vieira Riedl, continue the long tradition of delicious wines from Sonoma County grapes, farmed from more than 400 acres of Certified Sustainable vineyards in Sonoma Valley and Russian River Valley, each with varying compositions of loam, clay, and volcanic soils.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Lively and expressive, this Cabernet shows off layered aromatics and rich flavors. Dark red fruits, wild berries and black cherry notes are complemented with spicy accents of clove, licorice and a bit of ground espresso bean. The concentrated flavors and smooth tannins are balanced with a thread of acidity for a long, juicy finish.

Winemaker: Chris Louton


This elegant and refreshing Chardonnay bursts with bright flavors and aromas of fresh picked pear, juicy fuji apple, lemon zest and graham cracker. A creamy mouthfeel greets a touch of minerality on the long, crisp finish.

Winemaker: Katie Madigan

Pinot Noir

This bright, medium-bodied Pinot Noir shows off an abundance of red cherry and baking spice aromas followed by a burst of flavors with notes of pomegranate, strawberry preserves, fresh raspberry and black tea. This expressive wine has a lengthy finish with a note of toasted nut and orange zest.

Winemaker: Katie Madigan


This classic, rich Merlot reveals a deep color and broad structure. Aromas of cassis, plum and dried currant merge with layered flavors of dark berries, espresso bean and bittersweet chocolate. The wine has a long, vibrant finish with a note of spice.
