The Estate

Tucked at the base of the Stags Leap Palisades, Bench Vineyards was inspired by our unique geography. Surrounded by a ring of hills and mountains, our unique orography in the Stags Leap District defines our wines and our famed appellation. Orographic influences are climatic influences, it is where the ground meets the air. Taking in my experiences growing up in the vineyards of Stag Leap, working the crush pad and learning alongside my father, today we craft wines to share that story.
