Benziger Family Winery Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
Known for growing organic grapes and using sustainable farming practices, Benziger Family Winery attracts visitors with its open-air tram tours that show off the beautiful property spread across the hills of Sonoma County. The winery is set in the town of Glen Ellen, making it easy to visit from both San Francisco and Napa.
The Benziger tasting room’s main bar offers paid wine-tasting sessions, but the winery’s enhanced tastings and tours offer more in-depth experiences. A favorite is the Biodynamic Vineyard Tram Tour, a 45-minute exploration of the vineyards with a tasting. Additionally, the 1.5-hour Tribute Estate Tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at the winery with barrel tastings and a private seated tasting in the wine cave.
So you don’t have to worry about driving after enjoying some tastings, book a wine country tour that includes transportation; most depart from San Francisco, Napa, or Sonoma. Some include tasting fees as well. Private tours are also available, if you’d like to select which wineries you visit. Alternatively, you can simply head to Benziger independently to learn about the family’s biodynamic winemaking philosophy and sample the wines.
