My husband and I visited the vineyard for a look around and possible taste of the wines. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful. The staff was knowledgeable and outgoing. Answered all of our questions about their products and the area. Sam was particularly helpful and friendly. She had a great deal of knowledge and... More

Solid four stars for Benziger. I like how they are a biodynamic grower and the grounds look amazing. You can even take a tram tour through the grounds. The tasting room is huge and they have a impeccable service. The wines they offer are good and they also had an excellent port. We also were able to take advantage of... More

Went to Sonoma for our 25th anniversary trip and it was amazing even in the heavy rain. Gary our tour guide was the most knowledgable guy we've ran across and gave us his personal insights and knowledge. Loved the organic nature of this winery and family story. Our trip was rainy but wonderfully calm with few lines and more personalized... More

Benzinger's was a last minute pick for us, basically on our way out of town after a mini vacation in Napa and surrounding Sonoma, but I am so glad we decided to veer off the beaten path and visit it. This winery is, in my book, exactly what a winery and vineyard should be, and even the drive in was... More

Did the wine tour which was interesting, but quite basic so maybe not for real wine enthusiasts. The wine tasting was nice but the setting was quite basic.

The wine was great, the service was very friendly and accomdating. The real 'wow' factors were the views. The tour is absolutely worth it; the views in the vineyard were fantastic.

We visited the Benzinger Winery on a rainy Tuesday. The three of us ended up being the only ones on our tour and we loved the extra attention. The tractor tour of the fields and production areas was interesting and informative. Patrick was a great tour guide and patiently answered all our questions. Once in the tasting room, we enjoyed...

We took the tour around the Benzinger Winery - which was interesting but not outstanding. The tour guide explained that this was a family business however did not disclose that the winery had been acquired by The Wine Group, although there are still some of the Benzinger family working for the business. The wine tasting was rather a budget operation... More
