  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less

Found this on sale at Arrow Wine. Have not tried as yet, but other reviews suggest this is not that good...hopefully they are wrong?

You get what you pay for - cheap Merlot. Slight aromas of plum and red berries - decent purplish hue. Though smooth, it is simply watered-down without any fruit tastes coming through. I was not expecting a lot from this wine and yet, it still disappointed me.

Has a lush perfume of plummy berry, oak, mushroom and coffee aromas. It's not a magnificent blcokbuster. Still, it's a great inexpensive wine, filled with flavor, harmony and balance.

Round, soft and simple, with currant and raspbery flavors. Drink now through 2003.

This simple and light merlot has notes of sweet cherry and a hint of cinnamon spice, ideal for a tomato-based pasta dish.

Nice for the price. There's some juicy fruit along with greener, thinner notes, but well-structured, with the velvety tannins of far more expensive wines. Dry, but soft. A good everyday wine.
