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.

  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

Solid Chardonnay from Beringer. Citrus and vanilla with good acid. Nice richness and creamy texture.

Another super delicious chardonnay from Beringer Pvt Reserve. Lush bright fruit in a pedestal of rich, toasty oak which is creamy and laced with nice sweet brown spice. Elegant mouthfeel and nicely lingering. - Tasted at Beringer Private Reserve Tasting at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas 4/5/10

Straw green in the glass. Nice smoky nose with toasted hazelnut. Wonderfully creamy and rich without being flabby and seeming overly ML. Really nice chard! - Tasted at the Beringer Rhine House 4/20/10

In general, I agree with the tasting notes of the other winos; but I think there is a missing tag--and flavor--that none have mentioned: luxurious toasted, smokey oak. To me, that's a Beringer Private Reserve and Beringer Sbragia signature. Mmmmm.

    Your basic inexpensive California Chard: fruity, creamy and light, with pleasant peach, pineapple and apricot flavors finished with a touch of spicy oak.

    Nice and fruity, with plenty of ripe flavors and pleasantly oaky shadings. Peaches, pineapples and cream, buttery toast, cinnamonny spices and vanilla mingle together, leading to a sweet, honeyed finish.

    Rich and unctuous, with ripe, intense smoked pineapple, toasted cumin, hazelnut and nutmeg. Finishes with a solid dose of oak, but it holds together nicely. Drink now.

    To impart highlights of vanilla, caramel and nutmeg, Ron barrel fermented and aged 70 percent of the Chardonnay in French and American oak barrels (20 percent new) for eight months. Fermenting the remainder in stainless steel maintained a bright, fresh fruit balance. The resulting wine has ripe pear and pineapple, and mango flavors highlighted by citrus, Granny Smith apple and hints of baking spices.

    Lots of ripe, lush flavors of peaches and tropical fruit, a kiss of smoky oak, and a creamy mouthfeel make for easy drinking at an affordable price.
