    The tram tour with the private tasting is worth it for the personal experience. I don't think I'd like just tasting in the very crowded tasting room.

    This winery has an exceptional tour. If you want to learn about wines and how they get from vine to bottle stop here.

    Not a fan of white wines but their Sauvignon blanc sure does go down easily...

    Great place for a corporate junket. The wine cave can seat a small army for dinner.

    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!

    Don't take the tour. Too long cuts into your wine tasting

    If you are new to wineries, go here first and take the tour to have a better appreciation of how wine is made. Cave is cool too.

    We had Dr. Bob give us our tasting, highly recommend him, he knows his wine!

    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.
  • Patricia L.
    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.

    This place is amazing. It is by far and away my favorite experience in Napa/Sonoma. Take the partners tour and join the Partners club. You won't regret it.

    Hiked with some Benziger family members at nearby Jack London Park then tasted here, 50% of proceeds went back! Met Kathy Benziger, down to earth, staff was fun and gave us Imagery tasting passes.
