Courtney Benham’s journey began in the San Joaquin Valley, igniting his passion for the endless possibilities of grapes. This passion led to the establishment of Angeline in 1990, perfectly situated in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley – the nurturing cradle of premium wines.
Angeline’s commitment to crafting exceptional wines originates in the vineyards. From premium sources, they embrace intentional farming, allowing terroir to shine through. Minimal intervention guides their approach, fostering the emergence of each varietal’s inherent essence.
Angeline’s philosophy is simple: let the fruit speak. Experience their 100% Pinot Noir wines that capture the true nature of the varietal. These wines are generously vivid and perfectly balanced, delivering the authentic Pinot Noir experience.
The essence of Angeline is its team’s unwavering intention. Crafting single varietal wines, they capture the raw essence of grapes. Rooted in passion, they curate authentic wines, mirroring the spirit of Californian winemaking.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG).
Angeline’s dedication transcends wine; it champions sustainability. As proud members of Sonoma County Winegrowers Association, they harness solar energy, practice efficient lighting, and invest in water reclamation. Angeline’s devotion to sustainability is a testament to their respect for nature.
Sustainability Key Points Angeline
Their solar energy system supplies over 80% of the winery’s power.
Winery cellar lighting is motion sensitive (lights off in dormant areas), and they are continuing to upgrade to LED lighting in all buildings.
The water reclamation pond has been recently upgraded to better treat winery wastewater through aeration and filtration, and much of it is being reused for landscape irrigation. This is particularly important in this time of drought.
The piping that moves glycol throughout the winery to chill and warm tanks for fermentation and storage has been insulated for efficiency, as well as the tanks themselves to help maintain temperature with minimal energy consumption.
Their inert Nitrogen is generated on-site which doesn’t require compressed gas deliveries by truck.
All grape processing pomace (stems, seeds, skins) is recycled into vineyard and landscaping compost.
