Class Description

At Benziger, they are about three things: family, great wine and healthy vineyards. For more than thirty years, they've farmed their ranch on Sonoma Mountain and searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyards. Once found, they tend these sites using certified Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming methods. The result is a portfolio of authentic and memorable wines.

Join us tonight at Apron's Cooking School, and let Chris Benziger share the wonderful history of these very special wines paired with chef-inspired dishes.
