We tried this winery on a whim looking for pinot houses and made a reservation, we walked into a home style room with a beautiful fireplace. It was cold and rainy but really pretty nonetheless. I loved the rose, and all the information provided with the experience. Really awesome.

My husband and I visited during the crowded Labor Day weekend. We were the only pair during our hour tasting. We ended up tasting 6+ wines. The property is beautiful and these are wonderful Russian River Valley wines. Since the were in the middle of harvesting we even got to taste grape juice from the day before.

We went to this winery today based on a recommendation from another winery. They require appointments, but they were very kind and let us sit outside. It was a beautiful weather and the views were great. The wines were excellent. Three Chardonnay and three Pinot noir. The staff were very friendly and nice to us. I would recommend this to... More

Open since the early 2000's, Benovia is making some great wines. You need a reservation for a private one hour tasting but it's worth it. The Pinots are very well made and complex, with several from newer vines and one from older ones near the coast that were planted in the 70s. The Chardonnays are also well done and avoid... More

We recently revisited Napa and Sonoma, being one of our favorite trip destinations that we have returned to at least once a year. We tried a new winery on this visit, Benovia, and were very pleasantly surprised with our new find. A quaint winery somewhat off the beaten track in Santa Rosa, and well worth the trip through the countryside.... More

We made an appointment for a tasting based on a "Prince of Pinot" article just to check a new winery out when making one of our regular visits to Napa/Sonoma. Delightful tasting with our very knowledgeable and personable host, and we were introduced to some incredible Pinots as well as Chardonnays. We came away with great anticipation for receiving the...

At Benovia we tasted some great wines and met some great people. Bob Cooley showed us around and even let us taste some grapes right out of the harvest bin. Don't pass up this great vineyard and winery.

Loved our visit to Benovia. We did a private tasting and enjoyed and hour of tasting their Pinot Noirs and talking about their winery. Great host who took the time to explain their processes which we really enjoy. If you like great Pinots, and a nice variety of styles, highly recommend this winery. Would also be a nice spot for...

Four of us arrived for our tasting at Benovia about a half-hour before our appointed time. We were immediately greeted with apologies as the prior groups had arrived late and were in the midst of their tastings. It did not faze us at all as we were in no rush and were led to a table on the terrace with... More

Tastings at this winery are by appointment, and now I'm spoiled for any other kind of tasting. Our group sat at a beautiful table overlooking the vineyards, while our host Roger Carrillo poured several wines for us to experience. He has a passion for great wines and his enthusiasm is contagious. Highly recommended!
