Wine maker notes
"Our Chenin Blanc looks like a simple white wine until you get your nose near it. Then, you suddenly get a wonderful waft of lush peach, grapefruit & citrus aromas. These fruit nuances carry into the palate, with a balancing steely mineral quality that ties it all together. This is a great food wine - it sings with grilled sea bass, roasted game hens or pork carnitas. It`s extremely versatile."
- Ed Sbragia, Winemaster
Beringer Vineyards – The Beginning
Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the splendid opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany to New York. However, New York did not appeal to Jacob and after hearing that the warm and Mediterranean plains of California were quite similar to the vineyards back home, he soon made his way to the Napa Valley. It was here that Jacob Beringer, along with his brother, Frederick Beringer, purchased land for the first Beringer Vineyard in 1875.
Beringer Vineyards – Today
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001. With its perfect blend of modern technology and age old traditions, Beringer Vineyards still produces memorable wines that continue to bring recognition to the company and all of Napa Valley.
