WINERY

Benovia Winery

WINEMAKER: Mike Sullivan

For a Benovian, labor is life, and life is fulfilling. Winemaker and co-owner Mike Sullivan grew up tending his family’s vines on Sonoma Mountain. Proprietors Mary Dewane and Joe Anderson were both raised on hard work by their fathers, Ben Dewane and Novian Anderson. Hard work brings its own rewards, they would say. Be the best at what you do. Surround yourself with good people, and let them get to work. And never, ever produce anything that wouldn’t make you proud. Here in the Russian River Valley, we are all part of a close-knit community that finds joy in purpose. We’re at our happiest during harvest, when friends join us on the sorting line and the winery and vineyards are buzzing with activity and camaraderie. After years of humble, hard work, we believe that we are creating something truly beautiful that draws people together.

 

2018 Chardonnay

Russian River Valley

Intense aromas of lemon, guava and tropical notes are accentuated by light toast and honey. Aromas vibrantly harmonize with opulent texture, crème brulee and layered flavors of poached pear and Fuji apple on the palate which are lifted by a refreshingly mineral-laden finish.

2018 Pinot Noir

Russian River Valley

Intense fruit and spice aromas combined with a layered texture are prevailing attributes of this pinot noir blend. Aromas of red fruits of plum and vine-ripened raspberry abound then give way to red plum, toasted brioche and allspice. On the palate, black fruits emerge uniting with balanced acidity and fine-grained tannins that allows for mid-term cellaring. Unfined and unfiltered.
