Wines From Northern California And Beyond
At Benbow Historic Inn we welcome our guests, whether from our beautiful North Coast or the other side of the world, with a wine list emphasizing food-friendly selections to enhance our seasonal cuisine. We feature local Humboldt County and West Coast wines, while maintaining a foundation of Old World terroir driven classics and international selections.
With over 450 selections, we encourage you to open your palate to exciting new and diverse wines, from those made from ancient grapes rediscovered in Greece or experimental techniques made with yeasts native to California.
We update our wine list weekly and invite you to view the list prior to your visit in order to create a most memorable dining experience embracing a gift of our time – the Golden Age of Wine.
We also offer a large selection of wines by the glass and will waive each corkage fee of $25 with the purchase of a bottle from our cellar.
