Our tour guide was amazing. He did a great job of explaining how eco friendly the entire wine making process was done at Benziger. We joined their wine club too.

Excellent in every respect. Even the sales pitch at the end of the first class tour wasn’t too bad. We will go back. They are to be commended for their environmental conscientiousness.
