  • This was a wonderful experience. I was looking for a place that was family welcoming. They provided not just the wine tasting experience, but also a very nice explanation of the fermentation process and the most amazing tour on the vineyards. Dr Bob was very knowledgeable and make the tour a fun experience. Highly recommended
  • The farm and property is very pleasant and we were really excited to tour it. We had been advised that it had a petting farm by the concierge at our hotel. Our six year old granddaughter was very excited to see the animals. However we were greeted by "what do you want?" Everyone we met up to that point was so friendly and welcoming that all 4 adults were very surprised, we explained that we wanted to take the bio tour and see the petting farm. We were advised that they didn't run the tours on that day, you needed to have a reservation and there were no animals except for the sheep we saw from the road. Of course we were disappointed but all those things are of course possible, as a after thought we were told "welcome " . We decided to go into the tasting room, where we were ceremoniously ignored by the employees. We walked through from front to back and not one person spoke to us, we left and went to Mayo vineyard tasting room down the road where we had a very enjoyable experience and signed for 12 bottles of good wine. Joe was very hospitable and welcoming , not sure what was going on at Benzinger but I guess everyone has a bad day sometime.
