Insider Tips

What to Buy

2013 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
“This wine is a blend of top vineyard sites and has an incredible track record for quality and ageability.” $170

2012 Beringer Nightingale Botrytised Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc
“A hidden gem.This dessert wine is made using a technique developed by a past Beringer winemaker where they expose the grapes to Botrytis cinerea in a humid winery,rather than waiting for it to develop on the vines.”

Story

The beauty of Beringer Vineyards is evident in the wines and fully realized when visiting its historic grounds in the Napa Valley. Beringer is the region’s oldest continuously operating winery, with a winemaking tradition dating back more than 140 years. It was the first winery in the valley to offer public tours, and it remains at the top of the savvy Napa visitor’s list of places to tour and taste.

The winery’s grounds are magnificent. The entire property was designated an historic district on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. Built as Frederick Beringer’s home in 1884, the stunning 17-room Rhine House sparkles with original Belgian Art Nouveau stained glass and features handcarved woodwork. Today, the entire property is a fascinating place to investigate and learn more about Beringer wines.

And there is much to learn. Beringer is the only winery to win Wine Spectator’s Wine of the  Year for both a red and a white wine. Beringer wines are consistently highly scored, with the 2012 Private Reserve recently garnering 96 points from Robert Parker of The Wine  Advocate, who in praising it noted, “The sensational 2012 boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, crème de cassis, chocolate, blackberries, and licorice...long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along with terrific purity and a savory, rich mouth feel result in a classic, quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.” Winemaker Mark Beringer, great-great-grandson of the founder, upholds his family’s singular heritage and continues the exemplary Beringer winemaking legacy of crafting wines that highlight the best of the Napa Valley terroir.

Beringer hosts several tasting experiences including a Legacy Cave tour that explores the Old Winery, a Taste of Beringer tour that concludes with a sit-down hosted tasting, reserve tastings at the mansion’s ornate tasting bar, and hosted private tastings upstairs in the Rhine House featuring wines pulled from the library. For those eager to experience the legacy and terroir of the Napa Valley, Beringer Vineyards is the place to visit.
