Situated in the heart of California at the confluence of the Mokelumne and Cosumnes Rivers, Benson Ferry celebrates a rich farming heritage. This family owned winery produces premium, budget friendly California varietals. Vineyard owners in Lodi for three generations, the Stokes family selects fruits from prime estate & North Coast vineyards, for their delicious bottlings. Stokes Family Vineyard represents a family tradition of great wine grapes three generations in the making. Bill Stokes, Sr. planted his first 45 acres of Zinfandel near Lodi in 1954, and established additional vineyards during the next decade. His son Tom increased the family acreage in vines from the 1960's to the 1980's, both by purchasing vineyard properties and developing new vineyards.

  • Benson Ferry Port Lodi 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The tasting room offered this lovely port over a blob of vanilla ice cream and, of course, I accepted the offer. Yum. Not too heavy on the "sherry" taste, more along the blackberry & currant flavors. Good. May go nicely over chocolate ice cream as well. Love them sweet wines ! Read More

  • Benson Ferry Zinfandel Nine X Nine 2006

    Snoothrank:
