Welcome to Benessere Vineyards, where we celebrate the gracious lifestyle and comfortable pace of wine country. Our mission is to produce the finest small lots of Italian-inspired wines in California. We invite you to join us in enjoying these wines, which are hand-crafted in Napa Valley, although just off the beaten path.

Benessere is the Italian word for “well being” or “living the good life” and the name reflects our dedication to producing high-quality, Napa Valley-grown, Italian varietals and providing warm, casual hospitality.

Family-owned since 1994 when forty acres surrounding our St. Helena winery were planted primarily to Italian varietals, our distinctive portfolio includes two varieties not found at any other Napa Valley winery; Aglianico and Sagrantino.

Our unique wine offerings combined with a picturesque, off-the-beaten-path location provides a wine tasting experience unique to the Napa Valley. Bring a picnic when you come and enjoy our peaceful patio setting.

Come join us for Italian inspired wines rooted in Napa Valley!
