Definitely stop by. No reservation needed. Mom and Pop immigrated from Sicily and are there every day working, making their homemade mozzarella, and making sure everything runs according to their standards. The Barbera wine is fantastic. The environment is festive and upbeat. So glad we stopped.

Love the property and the family and most of all the prosecco. The service is always good and we also enjoy sitting in the piazza during the summer and listening to the three tenors singing Italian songs.

We heard great things about VJB Cellars but really blow away by the atmosphere, wine and staff. Amazing service; wine tasting was great experience and knowledgeable staff. We had been to 4 or 5 vineyards by the time we stepped into VJB and hands down one of our best experience. Advice, get there earlier in the day, have a nice... More

Wonderful service, fabulous food & wine. So good, I signed up to become a member, that day! I received my 1st shipment of wine about 2 weeks after I returned home. The shipment was actually missing one of the bottles, so I called them up & they took care of the issue immediately & were very kind during the whole... More

My first visit was like traveling to Italy and having a friend tap a carafe straight from the barrel of the best red wine ever. The estate Sangiovese is that good! We felt welcome here it was like coming home to family.

This was a fun winery to visit! The wine was terrific (we joined the wine club) and the atmosphere was entertaining. There's a huge patio in the middle of the winery, so we enjoyed the great weather dining al fresco. They offered a variety of food, from cheese plates to wood oven pizzas to gelato, so there was something for... More

We visited VJB (for first time) with friends, enjoyed wine and food, and joined the wine club. Excellent selection of Italian-style & varietals!

The number one thing that we will remember from visiting VJB Cellars is Ryan Robinson, the Wine Consultant and Tasting Room Lead that served us. He is amazing! Very good at what he does and so pleasant. Not only did we love the Prosecco and Red Wines but he made our wine tasting experience so enjoyable!
