About Our Wines
Benson Vineyards is 100% estate. What does this mean? We only produce wines made from our own grapes grown here on the north shore in the Lake Chelan AVA. We control all aspects of production, growing, fermentation, bottling, and sales & distribution. Quality and approachability are the hallmarks of our red and white wines. Our 5000 case production facility is located on our vineyard site next to our tasting & retail sales facility. This means we can harvest from the vineyard and move the fruit to our fermentation rooms very quickly. No trucks. No shipping. No fruit from outside our estate. This process is the best for our wines and more importantly for the environment. We have a very low carbon footprint as we minimize the use of transportation of fruit to the winery and the trucking of finished product away from the facility as most sales are right here on site. Our fruit is sustainably grown with very little inputs except for sun, water, and the occasional canopy spray to keep the molds and mildew away from our grapes.
Awards and Reviews
Our wines are produced in small quantities and have quite the following. Most wines sell out before the results of wine competitions are announced. As such, we submit our wines for review and awards very infrequently. However, we are supporters of the local North Central Washington wine awards judged nearby in Wenatchee, WA. However, we let you be the judge here at Benson Vineyards. You know what you like.
