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.

This place is amazing. What they are able to do with natural resources and organics is awesome... you ask yourself why everyone does not do it this way. The rich family heritage is simple awesome. The staff and guides were some of the best we have ever experienced.

The minute you step into Benziger Winery, you walk into another world. It is a beautiful, tranquil and welcoming winery. Service with a smile and treating customers like family. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the picturesque surroundings. The tram tour is worth the visit and you will appreciate how they produce their wines. Best of all, the wines are... More

Friendly staff and great wines from bio-dynamically grown grapes on their beautiful land. Take a tram tour before or after your tasting.

Visited with about 11 couples. Took us on a wagon tour of the winery and explained the process, environmental efforts, farming methods. The leader was knowledgeable and engaging. Tour concludes with a tasting that was handled well Really good experience

We stopped in for wine tasting with three young kids. We didn't feel out of place and were happy to see other kids and pets there as well. The grounds are gorgeous with the most spectacular views.

Everything here was perfect! The grounds, the views, the staff, and of course the wines were absolutely wonderful. It was such a great couple hours. We still talk about it as the highlight of our week in Sonoma/Napa. Take the time to go on the tour on the tractor/wagon which takes you around the grounds and give you lots of... More

We took the tour culminating in the wine tasting. The tour was well done including walk into the caves. Price was reasonable along with wine tasting. The biodiversity aspect was very educational.

I set up a dinner at Benziger for my conference attendees. It was a Perfect Wine Country experience. My group started with a tour of the vineyards and how their BioDynamic farming technique differs from the others. We then moved to their tasting room for appetizer which made for a perfect Appetizer Hour. The deck off the tasting room provided... More

What a great winery. In the area of 'mcwineries' these guys made a wonderful experience for us. Their wines are among our favorite and we love t stop by and see them when we can. We joined their club which has been great too. Go early and book the tour. Very cool.
