If you are looking for a exciting and interesting wine tasting stop you must not miss all that happens at Benziger family winery in Sonoma. Amidst a wooded property is a first class winery with a family tradition of producing quality wine from their expertly grown vineyards.
Their 85-acre, certified Biodynamic Sonoma Mountain estate has become a research and teaching center for the cultivation of grapes with more flavor, intensity and site-specific vineyard character. The family shares its farming knowledge and experience with their longtime grower partners throughout Sonoma County.
Biodynamic farming is the highest form of organic farming. It goes beyond the elimination of all chemical inputs. It incorporates the environment in and around the vineyard and works with nature to apply the knowledge of life forces to bring about balance and healing in the soil.
The property lends itself to exploring with pathways, gardens, an aviary, wine caves, terraces, patios and a great tasting room and gift boutique.
Benziger has a number of interesting tour options including their vineyard and tram tours. Enjoy a close-up look at their Biodynamic vineyards, visit the fermentation facility, crush pad and walk through the barrel caves. The tour is approximately 45-minutes, including a special tasting of their Biodynamic and other award-winning wines.
