Press Release

Benovia Winery Tasting Room Temporarily Closed

Benovia has always been about family. When my wife, Mary, and I co-founded Benovia we created an extension of our family, along with our partner and winemaker, Mike Sullivan. Over the years we have genuinely enjoyed expanding our family to include the Benovians – our affectionate nickname for our devoted customers who join us often at the winery and at fun events across the country, like the ones captured in the photos below.

We miss your company and camaraderie! But we want to do what’s best for the community. As you may have heard, Governor Gavin Newsom has asked California wineries to close our tasting rooms in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), so our tasting room at Benovia Winery will remain closed until we receive further notice from state officials. This is an evolving situation, and you can always check our website,, or our social media platforms @benoviawinery for updates from our team.

As you’re spending time at home with your own families, we want to make it easier for you to enjoy your favorite Benovia wines at home. Ground shipping is included when you acquire three bottles or more. Please know that the wine comes to you with our best wishes for good health and happiness. If you’re not required to shelter in place, you’re welcome to come to the winery to pick up your shipment.

Wines are best when shared among friends and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back to our tasting room soon!

Stay well,
Mary, Joe and Mike
Benovia Winery
