Benziger Family Winery
Daily 10am - 5pm
Benziger Family Winery has long been known as the founding father of Biodynamic® winegrowing and winemaking in Sonoma County. This rich history of caring for the land and crafting wine using natural methods has translated into high-quality bottlings that are loved both locally and abroad. At their estate in the stunning Sonoma Valley, tasting through their dynamic collection of wines is a must, and their experiences make this winery the perfect place to spend an entire afternoon.
The Tribute Tour & Tasting is without a doubt one of the region’s best tasting experiences. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the Biodynamically farmed Sonoma Mountain estate, winery and wine cave. Enjoy tasting through both bottle and barrel samples of the Benziger estate wines in a private room inside the cave. This 1.5-hour tour and tasting is offered multiple times daily at $50 per guest, and can accommodate up to eight guests. Visit their website for tour times.
Another fantastic and completely unique experience that Benziger offers is their Biodynamic Vineyard Tram Tour. Enjoy a close-up view of the beautiful vineyards and learn about the Biodynamic farming practices that make Benziger wine so incredible. During the tram tour, guests will also get to see the winemaking facility and wine cave, then finish the tour off with a tasting of Benziger’s award-winning wines. This 45-minute tasting and tour is offered multiple times daily, $30 per guest.
In addition to these unique tasting experiences, Benziger’s estate is downright gorgeous and well-worth wandering. With beautiful estate vineyards and gardens, and picturesque views of Sonoma Mountain, the sights never cease to amaze at Benziger.
