Fodor's Expert Review Benziger Family Winery

Glen Ellen Winery/Brewery/Distillery

One of the best-known Sonoma County wineries sits on a sprawling estate in a bowl with 360-degree sun exposure, the benefits of which are explored on tram tours that depart several times daily. Guides explain Benziger's biodynamic farming practices and provide a glimpse of the extensive cave system. Choose from a regular tram tour or a more in-depth excursion that concludes with a seated tasting. Known for Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc, the winery is a beautiful spot for a picnic. Reserve a seat on the tram tour through the winery's website or arrive early in the day on summer weekends and during harvest season.
