THESE ARE THE WORDS OF BEN-OWNER OF WINERY CLOS BENOIT
It was a cold February in 2005 when Bonnie and Ben Benoit first visited the Valle de Guadalupe. It was love at first sight. Having spent over 35 years in the wine industry, primarily designing wine cellars and wineries and staging wine tastings, what better of a way to retire than to open a small winery in the heart of the “Napa” of Mexico.
Now 17 years later our vineyards produce one of the finest Grenaches in the Baja.
Our blend of Rhone varietals, typical of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region of France, produces wines that are perfect for food pairings and casual enjoyment.
The rock walls around our vineyards is the inspiration of our label, Clos Benoit.
Our Vineyard Yard Inn is praised by those who have spent time at the ranch.
