The Benziger Family Winery is the best winery in Sonoma, but not just because their wines are of a superior quality. They also care deeply about the environmental effects of the wine they produce. They say their wine has “character and conscience,” and this is clear from the first sip of their beautiful, complex, and stunning wine portfolio.
Their entire wine selection is crafted using green farming practices, which can include organic, Biodynamic, or sustainable practices. Byodynamic farming techniques are not common in the wine industry, but Benziger Family Winery quickly found that by using a holistic approach to farming they created better wine and a sustainable legacy. They are so serious about this practice the the winery has employed a third party to certify its green practices. While green practices are good for business, the Benziger Family Winery also knows that by treating the earth well they are ensuring a lasting legacy of great tasting wine.
Sustainable practices also extend to the business structure of the winery. This is a family-owned business, opened in the 1970′s and in existence for over 30 years. This tight-knit family model ensures that business practices are always tempered by the love and integrity that only a family business can sustain.
There are a lot of great wineries and bottles of wine out there, but when you open the cork on a Benziger wine you can feel good about not only the wine you are about to enjoy but also where it came from.
