Jamie Benziger, 33

Winemaker, Imagery Estate Winery, Glen Ellen, CA

Lifting a legacy

Her family is huge in Sonoma County winemaking, and Benziger’s father, Joe, founded Imagery in 1986, the year she was born. She didn’t intend to follow in his footsteps, but working summers at the winery during college caused something to click. Before long, Benziger was alongside her father to help make some 35 different wines, from Malbec to Muscat. She recently launched Imagery California, a new line of traditional varieties “with a little twist.”
