In the wine world, tradition often tempers creativity, individuality and imagination. But at Imagery Estate Winery, an unconventional approach inspires richly expressive wines and a wine drinking experience that entices you to broaden your palate. After a day in wine country, it can all start to blend together. 'Chard, Merlot, Cab, Pinot, Chard, Cab, blah, blah, blah. At Imagery, we're all about experimenting with new varietals, exploring little known grape regions, and shining the spotlight on wines that are usually swallowed up in big blends. Stop by for a walk in our herb and vegetable garden, a tasting, or a tour of our art gallery.

Very nice winery with small lot wines which are only sold at or through the winery. Very attentive and friendly staff. The winery has a number of outdoor areas to site and enjoy the wine.

Imagery is a nice place to visit. The grounds are attractive, the tastings are not expensive, they have a beautiful art gallery and even a bocce ball area. Joe Benziger is the wine maker and at Imagery he is specializing in special, out of the ordinary wines. So, Imagery is a good place to go to try the wines and... More

We have been members since they opened their doors many years ago. Consistently wonderful staff that treat you well. The wines are always beautiful and we never leave empty handed. The grounds are perfect for a picnic and kids can definitely burn off energy here. The art on their walls deserves your attention. Note that this winery can get really... More

In fact while we were their, they had an event going one which had pairings with sliders & oysters. We enjoyed them so much we took 4 bottles home... More

Very nice wines, and the tasting was complimentary because we had been to their other winery site, Benziger. Take some time to look at the wall of bottles of past vintages. All the labels are original art, and they all have a picture (or suggestion of a picture!) of the Parthenon on them! Good wines, too! The small gallery in... More

We had our best time in the Napa/Sonoma area at Imagery! We had ordered a bottle of the Imagery Rose at the Glen Ellen Inn and then by chance I opened up my maps on my phone and happened to see it located 2 miles away so we had to check it out. There were 2 fantastic ladies, whose names... More

This was our second trip to Imagery Winery and again my family experienced another memorable visit. Funny how one of the workers remember us from our last visit nearly 2 years ago! We were hosted by Lorenzo at the counter and he was able to share just enough about the wine with us as well as some conversations about him... More

After vising Bezinger, they recommended us to visit their sister winery, Imagery. Gave us complimentary tastings as an incentive. It was about a 5 minute drive from Bezinger. The property is beautiful, and they have an art gallery. I loved all the wines we tasted so much, we ended up joining their wine club. Lorenzo, our pourer, was very knowledgeable.... More

Imagery features a large variety of wines to taste in the tasting room. Although Imagery doesn't offer the upscale experience of some other wineries, the tasting room is lovely and the staff are friendly and helpful. My favorite wine from the tasting is Wow red. Imagery is the perfect location for a casual afternoon of tasting and picnic. They have... More
