With the wine industry in Napa and Sonoma so consolidated into corporate giants it was a pleasure to visit the Benziger Family Winery in Glen Ellen, California. We hit it right at harvest time and enjoyed watching them begin the wine making process. We also had the pleasure of meeting Kathy Benziger the youngest of the Benzinger clan and a real fireball. You have to love a family business that is driven by the level of dedication and passion as the Benzigers. It's palpable and it rubs off on those who visit. The winery is a beautiful piece of property located in the shadow of Sonoma Mountain (a dormant volcano) and the Benziger approach to farming referred to as biodynamic is impressive. One of their Scottish cattle had a calf while we were there so they are quite diverse on the property. They have a very nice tasting room and their estate wines are very good. If you're in Sonoma/Glen Ellen stop in and see this well run agri-business.
