Imagery Estate Winery was founded in the mid 1980’s by Joe Benziger, who saw an opportunity to showcase small lots of exceptional fruit that would have otherwise been lost in larger blends. Imagery is dedicated to an unconventional approach to winemaking and blending, which inspires unique wines that broaden the palate. The approach has paid off, as Imagery has received numerous awards praising the unique portfolio of wines, including 2017 Golden State Winery of the Year, Bay Area A-List City Voter “Best of Sonoma” Winery five out of the past six years, and platinum and gold awards at the 2017 San Diego International Wine & Spirits Competition and 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

As a kid, Jamie was always on the move, whether it was playing soccer, riding her pony, or running around with her two sisters, Kelly and Jill. Later, while studying marketing at Loyola Marymount University and working summers selling tour tickets to the winery, Jamie realized she wanted the family business to be her future. To get back to wine country, Jamie transferred to Sonoma State University to complete her marketing degree and added wine business to her studies.
She interned in marketing with Gundlach Bundschu Winery during school but it wasn’t until her first harvest working the lab at Benziger that Jamie realized her heart was really in winemaking. Since then, Jamie has had incredible opportunities to continue learning the chemistry of fine wine working in wine labs.
Now Jamie is back at home and working alongside the most incredible winemaker she knows; her dad Joe Benziger. Mentored by her father and just as adventurous, Jamie is passionate about taking Imagery to a broader audience.
