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 142 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 142 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.

Did not receive good directions on where the tour started. Our tour guide did not pace himself well and ran over the scheduled time. We had to leave this tour early in order to get to the Legacy Cave tour. If we were informed of this prior to making reservations we have changed to workaround this. Very disappointed!

The cave tour is interesting but you’re not really in a cave. Advertising is somewhat misleading. For $5 more than the wine tasting alone, it’s worth it, but I would recommend a longer tour that other vineyards advertise.

Our host was easy to understand, friendly and welcoming. He had a job, though, was to sell wine which I did not appreciate. I have lived in St. Helena for a long time and have brought many visitors but none under this ownership. Except for one short tunnel that we could view but not enter, there was nothing authentic left and not one mention was made of the construction of the caves.??

At first we were a little unsure of how the experience would turn out upon arrival and have not been Beringer wine drinkers. However, once the tour begin to unfold and an explanation of the pairing of wines via tasting and treats, we were enlightened. Not only did we leave with knowledge that we had not previously had, but we also left with a resounding appreciation of Beringer Wines.

The person taking the reservations wasn't very nice, then she had us stand outside to wait on the tour guide which felt like forever (most wineries at least offer a sample while you wait). Then the tour was the shortest I have been on, the walk us to a house which we arrive at the back of it and smell herbs then go inside for a very tiny grill cheese. This tour wasn't worth the money.

This is a top tour in Napa Valley. The Tour Guide Jesus was outstanding. He was very enthusiastic, dedicated and appears to truly enjoy his profession. The commentary was concise, precise and truly informative. He explained the Founder Mr Jacob Beringer and hie establishment of the winery 143 years ago. Beringer is the longest continuously operated Winery and was open even during prohibition.

Love the wine which is why I bought the legacy cave tour for our party of 5. We were all very disappointed especially for the price we were charged. The tour was supposed to be an hour and lasted about 35 minutes. It seems Beringer has lost sight of what made them great and is now just a money making machine. Very disappointing

Beringer is absolutely fantastic. It is easily accessible to the public and the wine they serve is fantastic. We made a reservation and they had a table waiting for us in the public tasting room. This was fantastic, except we didn't know about the table until we were 2 pours in. It didn't matter because they weren't swamped but if it was busy could have meant the difference between getting a spot.

I booked a reservation for 4 at 2 PM. Upon arriving it seemed reservations meant nothing as the group in front of and behind us had none. The tasting bar had two bartenders to roughly 6 or 7 groups ranging from 2-8 people. They were extremely overwhelmed and there was not enough room for everyone to have a table/bar to stand at. Service was awful. Was by far our worst tasting experience.

They rebooked us and gave us a glass of wine well we waited for the next tour. They even called the other vineyard that made us late and took take of the issue on our behalf. I can't recommend this place more, plus the grounds are beautiful and the wine is great
