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.

Please note:

The winery will be closed: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day and close early at 3pm on Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve.

The Beringer Experience- Pu Tong Hua (Mandarin) on 4/08/18 11:30 AM

we have a good time during this tour. The wine tour guide, Chin-Wu Chin, he spent half hour to explain the Beringer vineyards history, and explain the wine tasting in another half hour. In history parts, he uses humorous and easy language to explain soil types and how to take care grapes. Then, he introduces the Beringer vineyards history, let us know the winery house is lean on hill .

The weather was not the best, it was raining pretty hard all day, but the property was still just outstanding, elegant and romantic. I took my mother here and we both enjoyed the tour and tasting. Such beautiful history at this Vineyard. I am so happy we went here and would definitely go back to experience it when the weather is clear so we can walk about the property. So breath taking!

All great information and interactive. I wish there was a little more substance to the food but the tiny bites were delicious!

This is a beautiful, historic winery with delicious wines and is a great place to visit. The wine pairing was fun and the room warm and beautifully set. Our tour guide was fun and energetic and she clearly loved her job and sharing the winery/wines with her guests. We generally visit smaller, less discovered wineries but I was glad to come back to visit Beringer and to show our daughter a classic.

We had the Single Vineyard Library tasting which was absolutely incredible. If you love cabernet wines, don't leave Napa without going here. A bit pricey at $95 however the cheapest wine we taates was $130 bottle so well worth the tasting fee.

Reserve Tasting Bar in the Rhine House on 2/17/18 1:30 PM

The houses and grounds are beautiful but that is where the experience ends. I paid extra to taste reserve wines in the house which was not worth it. The staff are indifferent and did not make my wine tasting enjoyable. I would have liked to have heard about the house or some more explanation about the wine I was tasting. As it was, I was poured a tasting and told this is what it is. Disappointing!

I’m a wine guy for more than 35 yrs, was looking for a simple tour for family that I was with that this was there first time in the valley. Had already been to Pride and Hall previous day . The web site suggested max group would be 9. We had family group of 9 and our tour had a total ~20. Way Too Big for any back and forth!!! Also, the price was ridiculous. Paid all wine + Nice profit

The estate is beautiful. Definitely plan on coming by again. But we purchased tickets for the legacy cave tour online and I may have missed it, but wasn't aware we had to check in at the register in the gift shop. When I asked about the tour in the gift shop, the women at the register said to wait outside by the sign. They never mentioned checking in.

Aside from being an iconic historical landmark of the Valley, the staff at Beringer are the friendliest of all the vineyards I have visited. The staff made accommodations to help me as I proposed to my girlfriend. If I could go back and redo it, I wouldn't change a single thing. Beringer goes above and beyond to make each guest feel special.

As Beringer is more commercial than the wineries I typically like, I went into the visit a bit dubious. The grounds and historic homes are beautiful, and Michelle did a fantastic and entertaining job of discussing the wines and history of the Beringer brothers. Beringer is also unique in that it provides delicious food bites with the wines. This ended up being one of our favorite visits!

The food was delicious, perfectly paired and the wines shined. As a local, this might be my new go-to for first time Napa guests who come to visit!

I went to Beringer 30 years ago and thought it would be fun to take my grown daughters. The tour is shorter and less interesting than before. There are a lot of better cave/winery tours (e.g., Castello di Amorosa and Alexander Valley in Sonoma). Our guide was not enthusiastic and referred to wine tastings as "marketing".
