Owner description: At Benziger, we're about three things: family, great wine and healthy vineyards. For more than thirty years, we've farmed our ranch on Sonoma Mountain and searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyards. Once found, we tend these sites using certified Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming methods. The result is a portfolio of authentic and memorable wines. Our Partners Wine Tour will satisfy the palate of any wine enthusiast. This tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at our Biodynamic estate vineyard and wine caves and finishes with an exclusive wine tasting of estate wines.

We stopped to have a picnic and stayed for the tour. We took the 90 minute premium Tour and it was very relaxing and super interesting. The tour guide knew his stuff. The tram takes you all around the property and into the wine cave. I would recommend it. You must have the time...it really takes about 2 hours.

My friend and I were in the Sonoma area for 1 full day and decided to check out Benziger Family Winery based on reviews and it being voted the best wine tour in the area. It didn't disappoint! We chose the earliest departure time for the Tribute Estate Tour and were lucky enough to have tour guide Mike M all to ourselves! He was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and open with us. While we are big wine lovers, we are not experienced in the fine art of wine tasting. Without judgement, Mike walked us through how to taste wine like a local, and it definitely set our day off on the right foot. Tour was incredibly informative, the views were spectacular and the wine was worth the trip. Highly recommend this tour and a big thanks to Mike M for making or first tasting so memorable!
