This winery is a quiet, unexpected find for us just north of Calistoga that has to be on anyones wine country itinerary. They have over 30 wines ranked 90 and above by 3 top wine rating magazines. Wonderful staff that let us try wine without being pushy or overly pretentious. We asked questions and got honest, knowledgable answers and suggestions. We go to Napa and Sonoma often and had never heard of Bennett Lane. I don't know why because it has a very great selection of styles and tastes and vintages. We had tried the Maximus 2008 while dining at Barolo Restaurant in Calistoga and thought it was one of the best wines we had tried in quite awhile. Took six of them home to San Francisco with us. We bought 14 bottles in all. We tried all red until the guy pouring suggested we try the Chardonnay. We are not big white wine drinkers but the Chardonnay was light, smooth and refreshing and we took a bottle home. Maximus is a blend and we loved it. Go visit!
