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.

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.

Reserve Tasting Bar in the Rhine House on 6/14/17 4:00 PM

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!

Was most excited for this winery due to my love of Beringer wines! But was honestly VERY disappointed. We spent lots of our tour looking at the gardens and smelling herbs. I did not go to a winery to smell herbs and guess what plants are in the garden. Disappointing.

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.

when we arrived, the staff was talking to us Bottlerock music festival, saying how overpriced everything is (and they kept going on and on). I felt uncomfortable because i was with five dear friends that i invited to bottlerock. once we got into the tour the guide was awkward and not knowledgable at all!!! NOTHING about the wine at all. It was a huge waste of time!!!

Not exactly what I was expecting for. In my mind a tour would include a visit to the production process (end-to-end). So, paying just to spend one hour hearing about the history of the winery and a tasting was not really a memorable experience to me, that traveled from Brazil with very high expectations in visiting a traditional winery like Beringer. So, it was very disappointing to me.
