At Benziger, we're about three things: family, great wine and healthy vineyards. For more than thirty years, we've farmed our ranch on Sonoma Mountain and searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyards. Once found, we tend these sites using certified Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming methods. The result is a portfolio of authentic and memorable wines. Our Partners Wine Tour will satisfy the palate of any wine enthusiast. This tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at our Biodynamic estate vineyard and wine caves and finishes with an exclusive wine tasting of estate wines.

This winery was recommended by a local for their friendly staff (and they were) and commitment to organic farming (which for a non organic guy was still interesting). Worth the visit. They were busy for a Tuesday rainy afternoon. First place I've been where I liked the cheapest wine the best!

This family winery is very eco-friendly. The tram tour was nice, especially for anyone who has mobility challenges. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. Wine tastings were included in the tour fee. The tour also included the production area and the storage cave.

The winery was nice enough and the grounds where well kept. I would not recommend the $25 tour. Not worth it at all.

The grounds at Benziger are very pretty, as is the building where the wine tasting was. We enjoyed a quick tasting here while in Sonoma. We didn't do the tour, as we had already done one that day at another Winery, but everyone said it was great.

The Benziger family is proud of the bio-dynamic practices. Beyond eco-friendly, organic - with outstanding results. The tour is quite enjoyable

We did the tram tour through the vineyards, saw the sheep, the insect farm, a stop in the caves and then on to tasting. Very educational and fun - something different from the typical winery visit. The tour guide knew his stuff. And reasonably priced. This would even be good for kids, and Matt, who assisted us with tasting, told... More
