Wine Country: Calistoga, Bennett Lane Winery

Bennett Lane Winery 3340 Hwy. 128, (877) 629-6272; Tasting daily 10-5:30. Hidden away at the end of a long vineyard-lined drive, this newish winery operates within a Mediterranean-style building. “Our red wines are soft, with great depth of color,” promises winemaker Rob Hunter. Bennett is the world’s only winery that owns and sponsors a NASCAR racing team. A “petting vineyard” out front permits getting up close and personal with various grape varietals, and inviting picnic tables await on a large grassy area with vineyard views. Get together a group of six or more friends and you can sign up for a unique blend-your-own wine seminar that permits blending and corking a bottle of wine that you get to take home with you ($175/person).
