At Benziger, we’re about three things: family, great wine and healthy vineyards. For more than thirty years we’ve searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyard sites. Once found, we tended these properties using certified Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming methods.

    This was one of the best winery tours we took this week. Benzigers uses biodynamic methods to grow grapes and produce wine, which is very fascinating. We ate a catered lunch in one of the wine caves!

    Not worthy. The tour is good, but the tasting is cheap: they don't change glasses between wines (even from red to white) or, worse, from wine to water. Disgusting.

    You can take a tour through the vineyards to learn their sustainable manufacturing process and to see their cave. Good wines, but the tasting is too crowded, even during weekdays.
