  • BEST winery tour in Sonoma. Our tour guide was so funny and informative. I highly suggest the full tour and tasting. Worth every penny.
  • Lots of things to see and hear if you take the tour. Gets pretty pricey fast if not carefull. The wine is way too expensive to me!! Easy parking. If you don't pay for tour there is not really much to do - you will be over in 30 min max. 3 stars too little, 4 too much!
  • Your wines are lovely, and most of all... your wines are married to the organic integrity, leaving one to embrace the recompense of that integrity. Respectfully, Maria Wesenberg, of Sarasota, florida.
  • Best winery in Sonoma County! Cabernet Saviougn, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, & Saviougn Blanc are their specialties but their big reds are my favorite! Be sure to go on the tractor tour to learn about the wine-making process, it's well worth it! Every time I go here I usually see one of the Benziger family members, which is awesome to see such passion & loyalty for the business. Benziger is way more relaxed & a much more phenomenal experience than most wineries in both Sonoma & Napa!
  • Party of 5 took the Partners tour and tasting. Don was our host. I would recommend highly. He did a great job explaining the history, winemaking and wines during the 1 1/2 hour tour. Listened to our questions, responded directly, very knowledgeable. Wines were great. Excellent experience. Tasted wine while on tour and then back at the starting point. Had fun.
