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.
