Benson Ferry Vineyards

Benson Ferry Vineyards Situated in the heart of California at the confluence of the Mokelumne and Cosumnes Rivers, Benson Ferry celebrates a rich farming heritage. This family owned winery produces premium, budget friendly California varietals. Vineyard owners in Lodi for three generations, the Stokes family selects fruits from prime estate & North Coast vineyards, for their delicious bottlings. Stokes Family Vineyard represents a family tradition of great wine grapes three generations in the making. Bill Stokes, Sr. planted his first 45 acres of Zinfandel near Lodi in 1954, and established additional vineyards during the next decade. His son Tom increased the family acreage in vines from the 1960's to the 1980's, both by purchasing vineyard properties and developing new vineyards. Tom's two sons, Bill and Mike, took over active management of the family business in 1985. Under their supervision, Stokes Family Vineyard continues to grow, and now encompasses more than 2,000 acres. Today Stokes Family Vineyard reflects Bill and Mike's talent for growing classic and cutting edge grape varieties, and utilizing advanced cultivation techniques in their Lodi vineyards. As a result of its quality orientation, Stokes Family Vineyard supplies fruit to several of California's best-known wineries. In 2001, the brothers established Benson Ferry Vineyards as a label to showcase premium wines produced both from their Lodi vineyards and from other select California vineyards.

  Benson Ferry Port
Intense blueberry, blackberry, licorice and spice dominate the forward aromas and full-bodied flavors of this superb California Port. True to its inspiration, it combines fruit, sweetness, structure and “grip” (a bit heat from the brandy) in a style that encourages both winter savoring and chilled summer sipping. Already delicious, Benson Ferry Port should develop beautifully in the cellar, if the lucky buyer can resist the temptation to open it!

Rich blackberry, blueberry and plum fruit dominate the aromas, which also reveal subtle cedar nuances. These same elements infuse the generous flavors, accented by a touch of spice and complemented by a full, yet smooth finish.
