Beringer Vineyards – Ultimate Napa Valley Winery
No winery more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and seductive flavor of Napa Valley than Beringer Vineyards. Located in St. Helena California, it’s Napa’s benchmark producer since its establishment in 1876.
Beringer Vineyards is Napa Valley’s oldest continuously-operating winery. The winery is famous for its award winning white zinfandel wine, and currently makes many wines with grapes sourced from different regions.
In 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer founded Beringer Vineyards in the modern-day St. Helena AVA. This was the result of their realization that the soils in St Helena were very similar to those in the vineyards of their home- the Rhine Valley.
The Beringer Brothers financed the incredibly difficult task of carving caves in the hills behind their winery.
The winery offers several tours – from the shorter, more family-friendly tour of the winery and aging tunnels, to more extensive wine-tasting tours. In any of the offered tours, you’ll see history play out and learn about the fascinating process of making wine.
Wine-tasting is a must. Both the neophyte wine enthusiast as well as the experienced connoisseur will find a tasting suited for them. Tastings range from newer wines to reserve wines and can include food or cheese for more nuance. The taste relationship between wine and food is, after all, an important one.
