It's small and comfortable. Greeted right when we walked in. With our Priority Pass we were upgraded to a VIP tasting. Hung out on couches and Alex was our host. He was outstanding!! Answered our questions and then some. Made the experience awesome. So did the greeter dog Pearl!

Donna and Alex were very friendly! We loved how conversational they were, and knowledgeable about the wines. Getting to pick some fruit off the vines out front to taste an array of grape varietals was a fun experience I hadn't had before at other wineries.

We chose to sit outside to enjoy the nice lawn area. The only bad part of that is they are not able to pour outside so we had to keep going in to get the next tasting, which meant that didn't really interact much with the staff. The wine was good and the views beautiful.

Loved the drive up -- rows and rows of sunlit grapes, and a few vines in the "petting zoo" that displayed different grape varietals. When we got there, it wasn't busy at all despite the 4th of July holiday, so we had our host to ourselves. Bennett was AWESOME. As the oenologist, he had lots of knowledge about all of the wines we were trying and could talk about them in great detail.

We called to book a tasting and the person on the phone accomodated us immediately. Our taster was very knowledgeable and presented us with several wines off the tasting menu allowing us to compare different years and vintages. The cab savs are what the vineyard is known for and definitely worth sending home!

I first experienced Bennett Lane Winery while on a Sip n Cycle tour- the property was beautiful, the staff (including Pearl) was extremely personable and informative, and the wine was the best I've ever had. It was such a wonderful experience, that 2 days later, my sister and I came back! I haven't stopped talking about it, and recommending, Bennett Lane to everyone.

Loved the outside area. Had a reservation but felt like they pushed us aside as they were busy. Felt like we were an afterthought. No one really took charge of out group and made us feel welcomed. Passed from one server to another and never got a good feel for the wines and the winery. Would not likely go back.

After an initial pleasant greeting we were left for 25 minutes without a second pour. A supposed VIP experience. We had to go find someone to resume the pour. We got a snotty couldn't you see we got busy when we complained. Simply the worst wine tasting experience.
