“Good Wine - Great View!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We can understand why the Benson Winery is selected for so many weddings! We were visiting Chelan as part of out 15th wedding anniversary celebration. The view is beautiful, the grounds equally so! The $5.00 charge for tasting is fare. The wine at Benson is good, though we thought some bottles overpriced. Too bad the winery is in the town of Manson, a name with a negative connotation. For us, we enjoyed "romancin' at Benson in Manson!"

“Great winery and friendly staff”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The winery is located on the northeast side of Lake Chelan. The tastings were free and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They only make wine from the grapes grown in their vineyards. It's located on a hill overlooking the lake and the property has very nice views of the surrounding area. It's definitely worth a visit while you're in the area.

“The Best View with Really Good Wine”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

The Benson Winery is a great place to relax and have a bottle of wine enjoying the best elevated view of Lake Chelan. Sit back and enjoy relaxing music while taking in the view. It's also a great place to have a wedding or watch one like today.
