The winery is located at 1010 Big Tree Road off Highway 29 in St. Helena, four miles north of downtown St. Helena.
Wine aficionados will enjoy a rare opportunity to taste well-cellared wines from the last decade and beyond, and buy their favorites while they last. Get a glimpse into Benessere’s aging cellars, and sample its standouts back to its early vintages. Take advantage of great pricing on wines that are ready to drink now. Come early for best selection. Benessere’s winemaker, Jack Stuart, and the winery’s certified sommelier, Eric Hensel, will be on hand to taste and discuss the wines with guests.
Benessere Vineyards was founded in 1994 by John and Ellen Benish. Benessere (pronounced “beh-NESS-seh-ray”) means well-being in Italian, “reflecting the wholesome life we live in our charming corner of wine country,” says Jack Stuart. Current releases, also available at the event, are 2010 Pinot Grigio, 2011 Rosato, 2008 Sangiovese, 2007 Phenomenon, 2008 Black Glass Zinfandel and 2009 Holystone Collins Zinfandel.
Benessere farms 36 acres of estate vineyards surrounding the picturesque winery and welcomes visitors daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., by appointment. For more information, call (707) 963-5853 or visit www.benesserevineyards.com.
