Benessere” is the Italian word for well being and prosperity. This is the feeling we try to embody at Benessere Winery. We are a small family owned, high end producer of Italian varietals, located in the north end of Napa Valley on the valley floor where the soil is well suited for growing excellent wine. We have expanded our selection of varietals to include Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Muscat di Canelli. We also produce an outstanding blend called Phenomenon. – Description from Alejandro

  • After last week’s look at value-oriented Zinfandel, I was pretty excited to jump into and taste some higher end wines. I love Zinfandel’s many iterations. From the Claret styles of yore to the fruit bombs that have made bold headlines and big points over the past decade, there is a great variety of styles well suited to many cuisines. Of course,...

  • Benessere Estate Sangiovese 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Purchased this from Wine Garage in Calistoga, CA.... Earthy, slightly toasty nose, deep red wild strawberry fruit notes... lighter tannins, a warm spice...almost slight cinnamon tempered with ginger. The big strawberry fruit stays through the taste. There is some oak here as well, hence that nose. I personally like this wine, but some Italia... Read More

  • Benessere Estate Sangiovese 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Firm, slightly candied black cherry fruit greets the nose followed by liquory strawberry fruit, strawberry seeds, damp cigar and low herbal notes, with hints of cocoa, nutmeg and crystallized flowers. Very polished in the mouth, this starts out with some graham cracker and marshmallow notes that lead to a mid-palate full of wild strawberry and c... Read More

  • Benessere Pinot Grigio Carneros 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This had a strange aroma of cinnamon gum on the nose. Cashew nuts, apricot jam. But I'm wondering if served with the right food - nuts and cheese with quince jelly - if this would grow on me. Read More

    Wine review by Amanda Schuster


  • Benessere Vineyards Napa Valley Rosato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is really weird at first, with an initial whiff of something that resembles Worcestershire sauce or fish sauce that gains good covering fruit. Its not off-putting or too intense, in fact its really attractive in a deeply savory way, though it is unusual. On entry this is round and moderately big with fine acid and some soft tannins buildi... Read More

  • Take the drive to Big Tree Lane, north of St. Helena, and follow the road to the sunny yellow winery. Great people, phenomenal wines and super views. Get up close and personal with the vineyards. Be sure to ask for Eric or Barbara on the weekends - and they ship your wines for you!
