Overview

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.

Do not miss a tour (partners recommended, about an hour and 15 minutes or so) in this biodynamic winery, with their insectarium and flower plantings. The tour is very informative and the grounds impressive; wine tasting is done during and after the tour.

We enjoyed this place. A bit on the larger side but a friendly place that is worth spending some time

The sustainability this winery applies is incredible. Not many vineyards are this passionate about what they do. I’d do this again!

Beautiful family run winery. I've visited many times. Love the feel, you can tell it's more than just a winery-it's family. I recommend this to everyone. Take the tour and taste some wine. Makes for a great day.

We took the Partner's Tour. Sadly this fell way short of our expectations as people interested in wine. Tour guide did not seem well informed, had a slightly aggressive style and made the whole thing feel like a very commercial endeavour. You are driven around...More
