  • Our family of 4 (including 2 teens) enjoyed the tour very much. We learned about what it takes to farm biodynamically and how the winery produces its product. We were even lucky enough to pet one of the farm's many days-old lambs. Our tour guide, David, was excellent and we took home 3 bottles of nice reds. Highly recommend, especially if you're traveling with kids.
  • Joshua our tour guide was wonderful. Our group took the Tribute Estate Tour. The Benziger Family Winery is extremely beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour.
  • Mike was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and informative. Very kid friendly winery and tour. Beautiful winery, clean, with public restrooms. End of tour wine tasting was enjoyable.
  • Excellent experience. Beautiful place 😀 Jennifer was awesome, good wine tasting and interesting orientation. Loved it
  • What an absolute gem in Sonoma! I was pleasantly surprised to learn the vineyard is farmed biodynamically - the best way, in my opinion. Incredible tasting room with really friendly, knowledgeable staff. The tour is well worth the $30. Better yet, join the club and get the wine delivered to your home!
