My fiancée and I have been going to Bennett Lane since 2016 when we visited for the first time from out of town. When we moved to CA, we joined immediately and go back frequently. It’s a very intimate winery and the staff is fantastic— they treat you like you’re family. Of course, the wine is outstanding too!

This vineyard was less than 2 minutes away from our B & B, and is in an absolutely beautiful setting in Calistoga. A tasteful and refined room with great decor greets the visitor upon entry to the Tasting Room. We had a friendly and informative 'guide' to our tasting. The wine was outstanding. In the end, we were impressed enough to buy a quite pricey Malbec as a splurge. Wonderful !! We say Go Go

A beautiful winery with a intimate feel. The wines are some of the best in Napa. Anytime someone ask me for recommendations for wineries to visit, Bennett Lane is always at the top of my list. It is a little bit of a drive up HWY29 but it is so worth it. Great people and fantastic juice!!

My wife and I really loved Bennett Lane, and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys visiting the smaller houses. They squeezed the two of is in a personal tour, and it was the best we had all week. The "petting vines" and the subsequent walk through the entire process were so personal. Great wine, greater people, this will be a regular stop from now on!

We had a VIP seated tasting and Bennett gave us an extra glass because we had to wait for a larger party (not very long at all) I ended up buying a couple of bottles on his recommendation.

We had a private tasting with Bennett (his real name). He's incredibly down to Earth, and hands down the most knowledgeable oenologist I've encountered. The reserve wines are amazing and we bought several bottles. As you drive up to Bennett Lane you may be underwhelmed, but they definitely bring the goods! Kudos!

Reserve Tasting at the Bar on 4/07/18 11:00 AM

Unfortunately I was rather unimpressed with Bennett Lane Winery. I found the wine mediocre at best. It is absurdly expensive for what it is, coupled with an expensive tasting fee. We are industry folks and walked away with a single bottle of 2010 cab + tasting fees totaling $184.00. Great for tourist perhaps, but as a collector and Sonoma county resident I will be recommending other wineries.

First time I visited a year ago, I liked the winery and had some good wines. I bought a couple of bottles & enjoyed them. This time, the tasting room was very loud. Service was excellent. Wine was good but I thought overpriced. There's better bang for the buck at other wineries. Debatable numbers...70% of wineries = not good. 20% good. 10% excellent. This is in the 'good' group.

I am torn about writing a good review about Bennett Lane, Part of me doesn't want people to know how really good this place is, but I do want the accomplishments of one of the best wine makers to be credited. I had just visited one of the bigger producers down the road and was sadly disappointed, but the trip to Bennett Lane reminded me of why I love this area's wine.

Loved the drive up -- rows and rows of sunlit grapes, and a few vines in the "petting zoo" that displayed different grape varietals. When we got there, it wasn't busy at all despite the 4th of July holiday, so we had our host to ourselves. Bennett was AWESOME. As the oenologist, he had lots of knowledge about all of the wines we were trying and could talk about them in great detail.
