Take in the vineyard views in a restored 1920’s craftsman style house on the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail. Our garden, with a bocce ball court and horseshoe pit, is ideal for a wine country picnic.
Riverbench tasting room professional Jules Reuter invites you to join him on a journey through the vineyard. Take in the spectacular views of the Santa Maria Valley as you explore the vines that surround you. The tour begins with a splash of Riverbench sparkling wine, followed by the vineyard walk, and will conclude with a wine tasting of our Estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Open to adults and children of all ages able to walk up to 1 mile on flat but uneven terrain. Please wear comfortable footwear suitable for light hiking and sunscreen is recommended. Wine tasting is permitted for adults age 21 or over.
Our Easter Egg Hunt has become very popular since we started hosting the annual event in 2008. Over 2,000 eggs are hidden in the garden surrounding our vineyard tasting room in the Santa Maria Valley. The eggs are filled with candy for the kids and some special prizes for their parents, including coupons for Riverbench hats, shirts and hoodies.Bring your little ones and take in the festivities while sipping on your favorite Riverbench wines and enjoy a picnic lunch from local food trucks Beau's Dogs on Friday and Cubanissimo on Saturday. Friday at 11 AM, all ages are welcome! We look forward to sharing a special day with all of you. Saturday at 11 AM, children 7 and under will be allowed to hunt for eggs. Sorry, no older kids at this one! Saturday at 2 PM, all ages are welcome! We look forward to sharing a special day with all of you. Tips for a great day: Secure your tickets early - this event always sells out and we limit attendance to make it fun for everyone While not required, why not dress the kids up for great photo ops (local news usually covers the event) Bring a blanket for a wine country picnic on the lawn Don't forget a basket for collecting eggs
