We went there in December with a free tasting for two provided by our hotel. Their wines were one of the best. I really enjoyed their Chardonnay and cab. Beautiful showcase and decorations with beautiful paintings. Iris was very knowledgable. Breathtaking landscape. Iris actually gave us another 2 free tastings to their sister winery Imagery. That I will review separately.

What a great place! We had the semi private tour with Austin and he is terrific. So knowledgable and enthusiastic about his part at the winery. The grounds are beautiful and the wine was perfect. A favorite was the wine caves and all the barrels. So fun to see and of course taste wine that is not yet bottled. Employees... More

We took the tour of the grounds to learn about the wine production & how they reuse everything. The tour was very enlightening & informative-worth the cost. We did not do the regular tasting because we booked the Pinot tasting. The wines are excellent & reasonable prices. The only problem is they can not ship to PA but we did... More

Great location, great wines, friendly staff, and exceptional wine club. One of the best in the Napa Valley - of which many people are unaware. Seek and ye shall find. Glen Ellen area. Go, see, enjoy.

Benziger winery blew all other wineries out of the water. Their wines, especially the pinots and cabs were some of the best we tasted. The service, the property and the tours are not to be missed. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and made for a terrific experience.

This is a beautiful property with the bonus of very good wine. We took the tram tour and tasting with Joanne who was so informative. Once one realizes what goes into transforming a property into a bionynamic masterpiece the wine is even better.

Impressive winery. there is a walking path explaing the process of the sustainable ways the grapes are grown and platned... In the tasting room, we were enthralled with the information we learned from Iris. And the wines are very good!

We attended a tasting of four Pinot Noir with a food paring. Great experience, our guide took us through each Pinot and why the food would go well with the wine. Everything from Salmon to Gormet Popcorn. Great experience at yet another great winery.
