The Spirit of Benovia is on its way to Normandy for 75th D-Day Celebration
In June 2019, the D-Day Invasion will see her 75th commemoration. We are proud that our C-53 “The Spirit of Benovia” Skytrooper has joined dozens of WWII era aircraft in a flight from the U.S. to Normandy to honor those who paid so much to liberate Europe. Follow the journey with Chief Pilot Jeff Coffman and Benovia’s co-owner Anderson also aboard.
Our team is an extension of an extraordinary family; one that eats, drinks, and breathes a lifelong passion for wine. That passion is distinct in every bottle of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel we produce from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Sonoma Mountain. Our fathers, Benjamin Dewane and Novian Anderson, taught us to be the best at what we do, and always produce something we can be proud of. Nothing else will suffice, period.
I like to protect things that have a heritage.— Joe Anderson, Proprietor
