Come visit us & enhance your ”well-being.” We are currently hosting guests on our brand new beautiful (and shaded) outdoor tasting patio in safely spaced tables and chairs, and over-stuffed couches.

Benessere is the Italian word for “well being” or “living the good life” and the name reflects our dedication to producing fine Italian varietals and our penchant for providing warm, casual hospitality. The Benish family named the winery in 1994 to describe the feeling of life in the Napa Valley.

Benessere Vineyards is a small, family-owned, St. Helena, Napa Valley estate in a country setting that provides an intimate tasting and picnic experience.

Tastings are by appointment only. Last appointment of the day at 4:00pm.
Please visit https://www.exploretock.com/benesserevineyards to schedule a visit or contact us at (707) 963-5853 ext. 105 // email: wine@benesserevineyards.com

Our Tasting Room is currently open Thursday through Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tastings are $20/person.
