Benson Vineyards Estate Winery is family owned and operated. Paul & Kathy Benson from Mill Creek, WA (mom and dad) fell in love with Lake Chelan while vacationing with their two son's Scott & Jeff in the late 1970's. They soon made their vacation cottage into a full time residence after Paul retired in 1996. In retirement Paul and Kathy visited many wine growing areas. After several enjoyable and fact finding trips to the Okanagan wine region of British Columbia, they began talking seriously about growing grapes in the Chelan area. After nearly two years of research and joining the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers, they asked both sons to join the exciting new adventure!

The tasting room doors opened in the spring of 2005 with only a few wines to share...but that was only the beginning! Today when you visit the friendly tasting room there are over 12 different wines for you to sample...but not at the same time mind you!

With the new facility finished Benson Vineyards Estate Winery is still growing. In the Spring of 2006 Beth McGuffin, a graduate of Central Washington University's World Wine Program joined the family as an "Honorary Benson". Beth has her bachelors of Arts in Public Relations, and a minor in Wine Trade & Tourism.

Today we are producing a little over 3,500 cases annually and our award winning wines are sold directly from our tasting room and online. You can also find our wines here in the valley at the finest restaurants and local wine shops.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
