August Wine Dinner Featuring Benovia Winery - August 25, 2014

Benovia Winery
August 25, 2014
Joe Anderson
Proprietor

The idea for Benovia Winery was first launched in 2003 when Joe Anderson and his wife Mary Dewane bought a 55-acre ranch that was for sale west of Healdsburg, California. The property included old vine Pinot Noir and Zinfandel on the Cohn Vineyard. In 2005, they purchased the Hartman Road Vineyards and Winery in the Russian River Valley from Cecil DeLoach.  The name, Benovia, is named after the owner's (Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane) fathers. They merged Mary's father's name, Ben, with Joe's father's name Novian, to create Benovia. The name Benovia is a testament to what their fathers taught them about hard work, striving for perfection, and taking pride in what they do.  At Benovia Winery, they create small lot, superbly balanced, artisan wines. With their full production winery in the Russian River Valley, estate vineyards, and grower partners, Benovia maintains a high degree of control over their Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel wines from vine to bottle.  Join us as we welcome Joe to Left Bank!
