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.

Number one, Beringer, was absolutely beautiful! Just gorgeous. The service was outstanding, the experience top-notch, and everyone was wonderful from beginning to end. ALSO, most importantly, the wine was so good, we placed an order to be delivered later to our home. Would go back to Beringer Vineyards, again and again. It was the quintessential Napa winery experience.

Single Vineyard Reserve Tasting on 9/27/17 3:00 PM

This was the fourth winery we visited during our stay in Napa. Beautifully landscaped and old charm appeal. Our biggest let down was the fact that we sat inside on a beautiful day, we enjoyed a tour of the home but would have also enjoyed a tour of the vineyard. Tasting was a pitch for becoming a yearly member and not so informative about the wine. We were let down and met another whom agreed.

We love Beringer:) My wife and I are pretty picky wine drinkers but we have found a winner when it comes to Beringer's Private Reserve and Single Vineyard Cabs. We were blown away by their Howell Mountain Merlot and Cab Francs as well. Michelle is FANTASTIC, she makes everyone of our visits that much better! Definitely recommend this winery!!

We found it disappointing. For our first winery experience, we found it lacking. We thought we would get more viewing of the actual vineyard and production plant. Perhaps there was a different tour we could have taken which would include these areas, however, from the description we thought they were included. In our opinion, the cost was not worth the knowledge or experience we took away.

Property pretty,wines nice,but $60. experience a big disappointment and bad value.(compared to other same format/same price experiences)Did not see anything you could not just walk in and see except for the kitchen room where we sat for tasting with surprisingly small bites,nothing exciting. Then told we could buy a taste room glass of wine and go explore instead of giving a pour from our tasting

He was so knowledgeable and gave us historical info as well as insight as to how to fully experience the complexity of the wines. Truly a most amazing day for us.

When we drove up to the vineyard I notice immediately the pristine landscaping and beautiful architecture. We enjoyed so .much its history and of course their wines. We truly enjoyed every minuted of our tour. I purchased 6 bottles and trinkets but was surprised to hear that this particular vineyard cannot ship to NJ. Would love to join this wine club but will have to figure out where to ship.
