Benziger Winery was founded in 1980 when brothers Bob and Joe Benziger sold their upscale wine shop in Scarsdale, NY to venture out west and start producing wine of their own. Their brother Mike and his wife Mary had purchased their first vineyard a few years prior, and shortly thereafter the entire Benziger family came to join the newly found Sonoma winery. After years of using standard farming practices, the Benzigers noticed the land was not as fertile as it once was. In the mid 1990s, Benziger Vineyards became one of the pioneers in the California sustainable farming movement transforming to a fully biodynamic and certified organic winery according to our Benziger wine reviews. Today, Benziger wines are produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and a handful of other varieties. However it is their top tier Cabernet Sauvignon based blends that are consistently found atop our Benziger wine ratings. Check out our Benziger wine guide below to see which wines are right for you.
