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...more

What a beautiful place! Our tour guide was just wonderful, and took us to all the nooks and crannies of this amazing property. We absolutely love how this winery uses the biodynamic farming process in everything they produce. There were several stops along the way...More
We were given a BOGO coupon for this winery when we went hiking at the nearby Jack London State park and, having never heard of them, decided to give them a try.
We are so glad we did! Their wines were really good and the...More
We found the staff friendly, welcoming and helpful when we went there in late September for a picnic, tram tour and wine tasting. The grounds and vineyards are idyllic, with lots of nice picnic tables. The tram tour through the vineyard and caves was interesting...More
As we were entering the gate of the Benzinger property, we were greeted by a fawn and a flock of turkey. This was a clue to the biodiversity and the balance of nature found on this farm. We were totally impressed! The Tribute Estate Tour...More
I did this Biodynamic tour for my 40th Birthday with the other half after reading much about it whilst we were researching our trip. I can honestly say it was the most excellent tour and one of the highlights of our 8 days in California....More
It is well-known that the Biodynamic Tour at Benzinger is excellent and well worth the cost. Dave was our tour guide and he was great; very knowledgeable and personable. We were on the 3:30 tour so there were only 6 of us, including two children....More

Ironically, I will be visiting Maine in late August. Glen Ellen is a great little town. Both Jack London State Park and Sonoma Regional Park are right there. Many wineries to visit in Glen Ellen and Kenwood. One of my favorites in Glen Ellen is the Benziger Tram Tour. Depending on when in August, you might catch a Broadway Under the Stars performance in Jack London State Park. I just saw a show last weekend and it is fantastic. Schedule and tickets can be found online. The group is Transcendence. I have tried almost every restaurant in Glen Ellen and they are all good. Top recommendations are the Glen Ellen Star or Fig Cafe. There is also an Asian themed botanical garden in Kenwood.
You are only 10-15 minutes from the town of Sonoma, which is well worth visiting to see the plaza. It is full of history, good food and good wine. The Tuesday night farmer's market is a "not to be missed" event.
