I’ve been a fan and friend of Benziger Family Winery on Twitter and Facebook for a while now, as they have a very active social media presence.  They’re also one of the first wineries to have developed an iPhone/iPod Touch app that is very cool.  I connected with the winery virtually and made a purchase or two on their website.  When I mentioned I’d be traveling to Napa and Sonoma, their social media team invited me for a tasting, so I made the winery my first stop on a recent visit to the area. I was in for a treat, as the weather was beautiful and the scenery fantastic! I opted for the $15 Biodynamic® Vineyard Tram Tour.  The tour is available daily, weather permitting, and departs on the half hour from 11:00 am until 3:30 pm except at noon.  It’s a great introduction to an overview of the winery, the vineyards, the caves, and the Biodynamic® winemaking process. The tour concludes with a tasting in their tasting room.  I highly recommend the tour, especially if you are a beginner to wineries and wine tastings.  My purchase the day I visited was a Cabernet Sauvignon, which was on sale and an amazing bargain!
