About Beringer Vineyards

No winery more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and seductive flavor of Napa Valley than Beringer Vineyards, Napa’s benchmark producer since its establishment in 1876.

Read More

As Napa's oldest continuously operating winery, Beringer is an American wine icon built on 140 years of winemaking tradition. Visitors are welcome to explore the expansive property, which was designated a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. In 1883, Frederick Beringer began construction of the 17-room Rhine House mansion—a re-creation of the family home located on the Rhine River in Germany. The extraordinary edifice sparkles with original Belgian Art Nouveau stained glass and carved woodwork. Frederick's Rhine House is the center of Beringer’s reserve and library tastings, and guests can enjoy a glass of wine while relaxing in Frederick’s library or on his porch, overlooking expansive lawns and lush gardens.

As a pioneer in the industry, Beringer has the distinction of being the first and only winery in the world to have both a white and a red wine named #1 Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator (1986 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and the 1994 Private Reserve Chardonnay--the first time a white wine garnered this coveted award). In its 140 years of operation, Beringer has had only eight chief winemakers. Today, Winemaker Mark Beringer, great-great-grandson of the founder, continues the exemplary Beringer winemaking legacy of crafting wines that highlight the best of Napa Valley’s many exemplary terroirs.

Beringer is the place to visit for those who wish to experience the unique history and the terroir of Napa Valley.

Perhaps it is unfair to rate our experience here on this extremely hot day. Everyone, including our tour guide was suffering from the heat and humidity. The tour was very short, no observation of the cellars or the vines or much discussion of the wine making process. The food pairings and wine tasting was fine but not remarkable in any respect.

Everyone was lovely and well versed in Berlinger history. The house is beautiful as are the grounds. We enjoyed a nice food pairing with three reserved wines. While the wines were not my taste, the overall experience was nice. There was some arrogance when I was asked about other wineries I had visited--there is room for all players--no need to disparage competition, esp when I like their wine

Michelle did a bang up job, knew her wines and made everyone else feel like a queen/king for a day. Beringer is always at the top of our list when advising friends and visitors to the valley. Regardless of the times we have enjoyed this beautiful winery, there is always something new. Your staff is to be congratulated on their warm welcome and knowledge of the valley.

Check-in seemed rushed. Our guide, while very nice and friendly, was young and inexperienced--couldn't answer several questions. Tour was overpriced for the cost...tasting wines were so-so in quality. Interesting history about Beringer but overall tour was disappointing. I also feel that the Beringer brand has severely declined in image and prestige from earlier times.

My husband and I felt exploited visiting this winery. It was quite pricey and we expected a somewhat longer tour, more wine tasting, and certainly a few crackers and cheese or fruit with the wines, especially at this price. We had visited other wineries over the years and got more for the money out of it. The tour guide, however, was knowledgeable and courteous. We would not come back again

I visited 12 wineries in 3 days and this was one of the best. For a larger winery I was especially impressed with the hospitality and personal touch. I was signed up for the reserve pairing on the porch but because it was hot that day (108 deg) they automatically found a very nice place inside to do this. Great experience overall...

It was a fun, personal and really rewarding experience. The speaker is very knowledgeable about the making and science of wine and answers every one of our questions patiently. My parents and I learnt a lot about the wine making process, different kinds of wine and pairing. They have a great collection of rich wines. Would recommend for any beginners who wants to learn more about wines!

Lovely setting on the porch for the $40.- setting.. While the servers were very courteous, said serving does not come with enough details on the history, setting nor the grape nor other details we were used to from other wineries! Not sure that tasting is worth it given the scant details offered by the servers- it seems no different than a sommelier in a restaurant pouring! Not overly impressed!

The property is beautiful but you don't really tour it. There is no tour of the vineyards or the wine making, so if that is what you are looking for it isn't here. The tour is basically sitting at a table tasting wine and eating a bite size - unusual food pairing. Overpriced for what you get. The tour guide did make it enjoyable.
