SANTA ROSA, Calif. (June 10, 2024) – Joe Anderson, Co-Founder & Chairman of Benovia Winery, is pleased to announce that Benovia Winery is the Sparkling Wine Sponsor of the Northern California Emmy® Awards this year. Taking place on June 15th at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, the Emmy® award is presented for outstanding achievement in television. This prestigious 53rd annual gala is for regional awards given to media companies and individuals who produce news, sports and community programs in English and Spanish. As the winners are announced, their engraved trophies and a festive glass of Benovia Winery’s 2018 Blanc de Noir await them in an exclusive VIP area.
“We are so proud to celebrate excellence in local journalism because free, unbiased press is vital to our democracy. We sincerely congratulate all of the nominees for their hard work,” said Benovia Winery Co-Founder & Chairman Joe Anderson. “Our Winemaker and Co-Owner Mike Sullivan crafted our 2018 Blanc de Noir to mark special occasions. This wine honors the best in us, and we’re thrilled to share it with those who have achieved excellence in local journalism.”

Distinguished this year by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the Top 20 tasting rooms in Sonoma County, Benovia Winery was founded in 2005 by Anderson and his wife, Mary Dewane, and remains family owned. Focused on producing exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and nestled in the heart of Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Benovia Winery’s estate vineyards are sustainably farmed, and the team is committed to conserving natural resources.

Benovia Winery’s 2018 Blanc de Noir is an enticing cuvée of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that retains bright acidity, while expressing floral and mineral notes. The winery is poised to release their next vintage, 2019 Blanc de Blancs, and both sparkling wines can be acquired at the winery’s critically acclaimed tasting room in Santa Rosa, or online at www.benoviawinery.com.

About Benovia Winery

Distinguished as one of the Top 20 tasting rooms in Sonoma County by the San Francisco Chronicle, and set in the heart of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, Benovia Winery is family-owned and dedicated to making exquisite, small-production Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Committed to sustainable farming, Benovia’s vines are planted high-density to conserve natural resources and produce balanced, elegant wines. Benovia was founded in 2002 by husband & wife, Joe Anderson & Mary Dewane, and the winery’s distinctive name is a blend of their fathers’ names: Ben and Novian. With an innate ability to combine skill, experience and his own intuition, Benovia’s winemaker & co-owner Mike Sullivan grew up in Santa Rosa, and helped farm his parents’ Sonoma Mountain vineyard before earning a degree in enology. He is passionate about Russian River Valley terroir. Described as “unassumingly chic,” Benovia’s tasting room is in a renovated Ranch House, surrounded by the estate’s Martaella Vineyard, which was once a quarter horse ranch. Modernized while retaining much of its original feel, it’s among the best places in Sonoma County to enjoy a seated, by-appointment tasting on the deck overlooking the vineyard, or by the cozy fireplace. Tours of the winery and seasonal vineyard tours can also be booked. Reservations are required: www.benoviawinery.com. Benovia Winery is located at 3339 Hartman Lane in Santa Rosa, CA and can be found on social media @benoviawinery.
