Only time for one- Benziger or Gloria Ferrer?

Hi- We are basing our Sonoma Valley trip in Healdsburg and will be visiting wineries in that area, but on our way to San Francisco I'd like to stop in the Sonoma area for lunch at The Girl & the Fig, and will probably have time to visit one winery (possibly two). If you had to chose between Benziger or Gloria Ferrer which one would you pick? Why?

Which one depends upon your wine preference. Benziger produces many table wines. Gloria Ferrer is famous for its sparkling wine. To go to Benziger, you will be back tracking away from SF. Gloria Ferrer is on the way.

I cannot say anything negative about Benziger. Its wines are good, and I hear that the tour is one of a kind.

Gloria Ferrer is a most beautiful place, and the sparklers are excellent.

If given a limited time schedule, I would go to Gloria Ferrer and then to Nicholson Ranch on the way back to Hwy 101.
