Winery Visit: Benizger Family Winery – 9.1 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

A very interesting winery and the many buildings you find along the way to the tasting room.  A beautiful landscape—you descend past several building and landmarks and are surrounded by either vineyard or other landscape.  I like autumn or winter to visit—the light quality and angle of sun against the trees make for an evocative sense.

Benziger makes their mark in the vineyard ground by biodynamic and organic practices.  They produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Syrah.  Spendid tasting room staff—next time I need to visit the reserve tasting bar.  A great experience and if you have time visit their sister winery—Imagery Estate.
