Our Wines.

Benza Vineyards Hillsboro Oregon Willamette Valley Winery
Benza Vineyards Oregon Pinot Gris

We have a simple belief that the land is the most important factor to producing an expressive wine. We treat it with kid gloves. We dry farm allowing the vines to send their roots deep for water, extracting intense flavors from our Laurelwood soil and underlying volcanic Jory soil. We use organic farming practices to keep nature in balance closer to the surface. Means more work for us. But we think it shows in the quality of the wine.

2020

Brut Rosé

Just in time for summer, this Brut Rosé sparkler will delight the senses. Made from two of our Pinot Noir clones, Wadenswil and Dijon 115 and fermented in stainless steel for freshness & vitality. A finish of strawberries & cream with a hint of blackberry bramble makes it a great accompaniment for summer foods.

Estate Sparkling Brut

Made in the Champenoise method, this sparkling wine is a combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our estate grapes. Went into secondary fermentation in the bottle in April of 2019 and has been gathering flavors since that time—until disgorging in December of 2021. Its sister 2017 vintage was chosen as Wine & Spirits’ ‘Year’s Best US Sparklers’. We have high hopes for this even more elegant vintage.

Bottle of Benza 2018 Brut
2017

Sparkling Brut

Made in the traditional method, this sparkling wine is a combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Went into secondary fermentation in the bottle in April of 2018 and has been gathering flavors since that time—3 years and 4 months—until disgorging in July of 2021. Chosen as Wine & Spirits’ ‘Year’s Best US Sparklers’: “Posh & elegant, this wine has a fine mousse and smells nutty and creamy right out of the gate. The flavors are all lemon curd and egg cream, the acids fine and persistent, with a talc-like minerality on the finish. -Patrick Comiskey, 91 Points

Estate Pinot Gris

Our 2-acre north-facing Block 2 makes for wonderful Pinot Gris.

While our Gris is technically dry there is a small amount of residual sugar balancing out the intensity of the acid and lending some textural weight—experienced as a certain lushness. Aromatics run wild from citrus and tropical flowers to a more intense fig component.

Perfectly ready to drink now. Only 165 cases produced.

Touch of Gold Estate Chardonnay

We went to extra lengths on this limited release Chardonnay as it’s named after our horse, Touch. Actually his full name is “Lucky Touch of Gold”. Barrel fermented from the estate’s Chardonnay vines and on its lees for 16 months. Reflects the ripe characteristics of the vintage restrained by an early pick in order to maintain balance and acidity. A wine that can be enjoyed now but will improve with age. Touch would give this three neighs.

91 Points JamesSuckling.com: “Sharp acidity and zesty, flinty and smoky character. Flavorful finish.”

2019

Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir

Comprised entirely of Pinot Noir clone 115 from the highest part of the estate. This Rosé spent six hours on skins prior to pressing. The skin contact adds red-fruited aromatics and gives textural weight. Hints of citrus and tropical fruits yield to a dominant nose of fresh strawberries. Serve chilled as an accompaniment to food or on its own. A serious Rosé!

Estate Pinot Noir

Picked from various estate blocks, this wine is a reflection of its place in 2018. The warm and very dry growing season led to wines of intensity. The wine was in barrel for 10 months comprised of 15% new French oak. This wine shows the characteristics of the vintage with dark red fruit and earthy / spicy notes.  The wine has the guts to age for many years. A faithful representation of our property.

Symphony Pinot Noir

Sourced from three prized vineyards in three nested AVA’s of the WV: Chehalem Mountains, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville. 60% Pommard brings an incredible nose to this 2019 but already delicious wine.

Our Commitment to Environmental Packaging

All of our packaging materials for shipping are recyclable. We use corrugated recycled bottle inserts to hold shipped bottles safe, never styrofoam. We do not use plastic tape to close our packages but rather paper kraft tape.And of course, our outer shipping boxes and glass are completely recyclable. 
For carry-out at the winery we now are using corrugated fold-up boxes with handles instead of cloth wine bags. Wine bags started out as a great idea but the reality is most people end up with so many they end up throwing them out.
