We enjoyed many of the wines that we tasted here, and the employee who poured for us was really knowledgeable, warm, and fun to talk to. We didn't have time for a tour this visit, but she encouraged us to return and bring our kids! We appreciated that we could walk around the informative displays, so we could learn about... More

This is a wonderful winery to visit, and make sure you take the tour. One of the best vineyard tours we have ever taken, by far. The wines were excellent and the staff superb. We even joined their wine club.

We visited after spending the morning at the Jack London State Park (it is down the road). It is one of the very few wineries that is certified biodynamic. Take the tram tour to learn and do a tasting!

Now that may be odd that we've never joined a wine club but let me explain that the state we live in just passed a new law allowing wine to be shipped so our luggage was going to be a bit lighter this trip. Benziger has some very beautiful property but we did our tasting indoors inside an pretty bar/tasting... More

We did a tram tour to see the operation. Great explanation of biodiversity vs organic. The tour was very interesting. The wine tasting host was very busy with other guests so we never ended up buying anything

Met by Bill in the tasting room. We got there early to beat the crowds and weren't dissappointed. Bill was friendly and knew his wine (and food pairings). Not rushed. Ample wine to taste and revisit if needed. Enjoyed their red blend, cab and Chardonnay . Good wine club deal for our favorites and worth investigating to continue to enjoy... More

It was a girls' weekend getaway and we toured Benziger Family Winery while on the Sonoma Valley Trolley Tour. We had just been to their sister vineyard, Imagery. We were very impressed with BFW and especially the included tram tour out into the vineyard fields. We learned so much about bio-dynamics. There was a tasting out in the field which... More

As we were short on time & couldn't do a 'winery crawl' this tour was selected by our friend who lives in San Francisco. What a great choice! We were so impressed... We took the 'partners tour' which was a small group of 8. Our guide, Kenny was most informative, it was an educational experience & it was more than... More

Our experience at Benzinger was awesome. I would highly recommend taking the $25 tour. Our guide Gary was outstanding, he really provided a great education on how they make wine at Benzinger.
