It's people. We had a very interesting young man who taught us a lot about agriculture and that is vitally important for everyone who eats or drinks.

We had the pleasure of being referred to Bennett Lane by one of the hostesses at another winery. She had great things to say and we were not disappointed! The young lady who worked with us on our tasting was very knowledgeable, not pretentious at all and just a fun, vivacious person who loves her job. The reason we came... More

Small winery with big cabs. We did the $40 tasting of three $95 cabs. All very good. Found others cabs at half the price that were just as good. Expensive tasting!

My sister and I have been members of Bennett Lane's wine club ever since we started going up to Napa & Calistoga. We particularly enjoy the Cabernet Sauvignon as well as their white Maximum blend. The staff has always been very welcoming and informative. If you haven't been there before, start your day of wine tasting in Calistoga for a... More

A group of 4 of us visited the winery over the weekend and were so impressed. Just the overall atmosphere was so inviting. The owners happened to be there and were the nicest people. It was a wine club pick up day so they were having a party for them as well. In speaking with a few of the members... More

I had a great experience here! I am a solo traveler and Peter took awesome care of me. Their wines are all well rated and extremely good. He showed me the back room with the fermenting tanks and the barrels and did an excellent job explaining their process. I tried several different wines and loved them all. I am not... More

This winery is a quiet, unexpected find for us just north of Calistoga that has to be on anyones wine country itinerary. They have over 30 wines ranked 90 and above by 3 top wine rating magazines. Wonderful staff that let us try wine without being pushy or overly pretentious. We asked questions and got honest, knowledgable answers and suggestions.... More

The first stop on our Calistoga bike tour was such an off-putting winery that this place seemed great by comparison. But in retrospect, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I just think our bike tour guy was friends with the people who worked there.

On route home today, we saw this winery and stopped in for a real treat! We were greeted by a wonderful young lady who told us about the wines, and seemed truly interested in talking with us. A real plus for a sommelier!!!! She poured only reds - at our request. All of the reds were GREAT. As you are... More

We've been wine club members at Bennett Lane for a long time. Both the red and white Maximus are excellent wines, and a good value. The outdoor seating under the umbrellas is very peaceful, and the tasting room staff come out to continue your tasting. Always a good stop.
