  • This was a wonderful experience. I was looking for a place that was family welcoming. They provided not just the wine tasting experience, but also a very nice explanation of the fermentation process and the most amazing tour on the vineyards. Dr Bob was very knowledgeable and make the tour a fun experience. Highly recommended
  • A few years ago we toured this beautiful winery and learned about the biodynamic way to raise grapes. Fascinating. We had several bottles shipped home before we left. Over the last few years we have ordered off and on and always been more than satisfied by their wonderful wines. Recently, I called to check on an order of 12 bottles because I was concerned they wouldn't be here in time for my birthday. There was a weather hold based on the high temperatures we are having here in Florida right now. This can affect the wine's quality in a bad way. So, I called and talked to Jane, a supervisor at the winery. She was totally empathetic and, before I knew it, she offered me a really nice upgrade in shipping for free. Long story short, my bottles are now here a few days early for my birthday and I am over the moon happy! Not only was the service awesome, but also Jane has a wonderful personality and was genuinely concerned my wine wouldn't be here for my birthday. She made it happen. Thanks Jane and Benziger winery! You guys are just awesome and having your wonderful and special wines to celebrate is icing on the cake!
  • Fantastic experience with Dr. Bob as our host! The tour was lots of fun and very informative. It was a nice switch from sit and sip setting! Great vineyard views and got to get close to beautiful vines! Thanks Dr. Bob and Benziger!
  • This place is incredible! Fiancé and I came and were fascinated by the biodynamic operations here. Friendly staff, and most importantly, DELICIOUS wines. We joined and can’t wait to come back and pick up our shipment. Special thanks to Dr. Bob for the tour and Louie for the tasting and good conversation.
  • First time our family visited Benziger Family Winery in Sonoma Valley we were just in love with this gorgeous vineyard!! Sonoma over Napa hands down! We had such a wonderful time enjoying our tasting of delicious wines we didn’t feel rushed & savored the spectacular quaintness of this Beautiful winery. The weather was just absolutely perfect sat outside under the Sonoma sunshine just Devine!! Mike our wine guide was so knowledgeable & professional. The winery is situated on beautiful rolling hills. Our family loved this winery and will love to visit again when in California.
