Benson Vineyards Estate Winery

754 Winesap Ave., Manson, WA 98831509-687-0313

Truly a family-owned and run vineyard. Paul Benson owns the winery with sons, Scott, who is the winemaker, and Jeff, who is viticulturist. Also involved in the winery and tasting room are other family members, many of whom can be found manning the tasting room on a weekend.

The winery has been open since 2002

The view of Lake Chelan from the present warehouse-turned-tasting-room over the 30 acres of vineyard is spectacular, even on an oh-so-rare rainy day. The vineyards grow six red and four white varietals.

Construction of new facilities are underway, with a planned second story tasting room – to maximize the view – underway.

Here are some of the winery’s currently featured wines from the Benson website tasting notes:

2005 Estate Ice Wine – Gewurztraminer. Real ice wine! We harvested frozen berries from our Gewurztraminer block on the 14th of January 2005. We only produced 30 gallons of wine, a very small production, indeed! Beautiful rose character on the nose and light sweetness in the mouth. Enjoy after dinner, served cold!
