Nice and relaxing
Jun 2021 • Couples
The level of service was great. The wine was great and the service was great. Came here on a Wednesday and it was very relaxing, not busy. The food they only take cash no credit cards.

The best wine tasting
Jun 2021 • Couples
Went here recently for a wine tasting with friends. This was the best wine tasting that I have been to locally. You get good pours, not these 1oz pours you get everywhere else. Their wines are very good. Highly recommend this place for a wine tasting. Its my favorite

Wine with a view
May 2021
Loved the view from Benmarl Vineyard! The food from a little Mexican partner restaurant on site was FABULOUS, had tastings and glasses of our favorite. Couldn’t have been a more lovely afternoon. ❤️🍷

Inhospitable experience!
May 2021 • Friends
It was the most inhospitable experience! They wanted to kick us out after 75 minutes while we had our food and wine ordered. The waitress didn't belong in the hospitality industry. Just there to make a living. The general manager had only the title not the skills associated with any kind of managing. And the owner came to be the icing on the cake and when me as a guest told him "this is not hospitality. You are all about numbers" the only thing his intelligence and education allowed to reply was "you are all about numbers". Wines are drinkable but don't open a hospitality establishment just to make some extra cash. Ruined a birthday party of 12 30+ people who could refer this place to many more people. So, just because rain was coming and he wanted to accommodate all the people who had booked outdoors he preferred to kick out our group that was under the tent. The place was pretty but not well maintained and policed. The Vines could be counted in 5 seconds. Most grapes bought probably.

Fun outing
Mar 2021 • Family
We enjoyed our 75 mins of the wine flight. The location is beautiful, staff was courteous and knowledgeable. We only tried the reds, but there is a large variety, plus one cider. You are required to purchase food, because the state requires that of their facility. ..and the food ranges from $10 to $25. Cash for food, but there is an ATM on-site. Overall, nice outing. Since it was cold and windy, we had indoor seating. Shoved our kids in the corner, bought them each a soda, and pretended they weren't there. :-)

Beautiful views and stellar service
Mar 2021
My husband and I made reservations for this winery this past weekend. We initially booked for 11:30am but realized we were going to be there much earlier and called to ask for 11am. The person who answered was lively and more than happy to change our reservation time. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by multiple staff and sat in a socially distanced open room with stunning views. It is required to purchase a food item and it is a timed tasting-75minutes. The staff explains everything very clear and you do not feel rushed. The only suggestion I would offer is they should tell patrons it is cash only for food. We did not know that until we went to order. The wines were incredible and the cheese platter we ordered was presented well and adequate for the price. Multiple staff would come to check on us and ensure we were enjoying ourselves and before we left my husband was asking some questions about some of the antiques they had on display. The lady who were were speaking with was so energetic and encouraged us to come back again in the summer for the pizza and entertainment. We certainly will!

Great time, Greater views!
Oct 2020
Beautiful grounds, jaw jopping views of the moon rising. Super friendly employees that did enforce (nicely) social distancing rules when a rowdy, rude group, who clearly didnt have reservations came and hovered over our table that was close to the heat lamp. Only downside is that now it is freezing outside so once dusk/ sunset starts is borderline unbearable unless you're completely dressed in ski gear! They do offer heat lamps, which they were nice enough to turn on when we asked! Great flights, my mother and I did not like one of the wines and they changed it for us with no hesitation, nice 2-ounce pours. Good food, we had the pizza. With a reservation you get 75 mintues to enjoy, which makes since to maximize the amount of people they can offer that stunning view. If you wanted to stay longer they offer pinic tables with less than ideal views, again understandable. Overall fun experience, will definitely return and recommend!

Best Vineyard Experience
Oct 2020
The view at Benmarl Vineyard is just breathtaking. The services was excellent and the wines were everything you needed in a good glass of wine. I loved the experience at this Vineyard from the arrival to the end the service was top notch. The food was very delicious, the pizza is one of my favorite which is made on premises. Benmarl have some of the best pizza period. The cheese spread is another excellent choice. My favorite wine at Benmarl is the semi dry riesling this wine is so refreshing. I ended purchasing several bottles. If you are ever in the area this is a must do.

A disappointment
Oct 2020
On one hand, I must congratulate them on the very obvious increase in business via social media or something else. On the other hand, it totally ruined a wonderful ambiance that I have enjoyed over the past ten years. The crowd, the limit of 75 minutes at a table, the ability to purchase only by the glass (maximize that revenue!!), and the tents that totally obstructed the view, and even the a few obnoxious waitresses that said you couldn't go past the reserved tables to see the view all ruined what had been a great time. We left and went to a neighboring winery and enjoyed ourselves. Very disappointing.
