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.

Take the tour. We had a fantastic peek into how this vineyard manages their operation in a sustainable way. You go out into the vineyard .. a tractor pulls you in a wagon with bench seating. It's a great way to see the operation and very informative.

A thoroughly enjoyable tractor led tour of their lovely property, with explanations of their.net biodynamic methods, and a tasting of several wines. We didn't choose to purchase any of their wines, but they are for sale.

Loved this tour and how Benziger is applying every conceivable full circle knowledge to create its biodynamic wines. The vineyards are breathtaking, our tour guide was funny and knowledgable, and the tasting afterward was fun, informative, and turned us in to a delightful biodynamic white not available in stores.

We booked this last minute and it was our first trip to a winery so we had high hopes. This did not disappoint Luke was a great guide he had a lovely relaxed but informative style meaning we learnt so much in a comparative short space of time. It was great to sample wines that we don't get in the... More

We loved the tram tour. Our guide, Nathaniel, was both informative and humorous. Loved going out into the vineyards and learning about biodynamic farming methods. Are these the most complex wines you'll ever taste? Maybe not - but you'll never taste anything produced with more TLC.

We visited the winery at the end of July after a recommendation from a friend that it was family friendly. Our 2 children were able to join us and learn on their biodynamic farm tour tram. Mike was very knowledgeable in explaining the wine making process as he took us through the vineyard and cellar. We learned a lot. We... More

We did the 1:15 tour with Will. Totally enjoyed riding the tram around the vineyard; Will did a great job explaining the various aspects of biodynamic farming. We particularly enjoyed tasting some of the wines outdoors and in the cave, and then going into a tasting room for a final flight of reds. It was wonderful and we would recommend... More

This is a great stop! We had our kids....it was well wroth the stop. Tour guides were informative, the process was close and visual. The ride around the vineyard allowed for photos.....and the wine tasting was great! We toured a few vineyards. Of those, this is the only return trip I would make for SURE!
