Beringer Vineyards:
  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.

  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

Very nice nose, fruity on the tongue with good finish. Just the right amount of tartness.

This Grigio is such a comfort to me. I first found it while on my honeymoon in Ocho Rios and it continues to be a favorite of mine. The bouquet is very floral, such a highlight of a typical pinot gris. This wine has a very delicate bouquet of white floral and mineral nodes that pair perfectly with eachother and leave your senses relaxed and excited to take it first sip. At first sip, the wine is very crisp and has a mouthwatering peach taste with hints of pear. You can detect the pineapple and mango also and there is a suttle sweetness to this wine from all the fruit. It ends with more floral nodes and the crisp, wet taste of the peach. The end is full bodied, yet the taste doesnt linger. It leaves your pallet wanting more. Its very relaxing, as if youre sitting on a veranda in the Mediteranian. In all, this is a very good Grigio that goes beyond its $11 price tag. It is a very simple, uncomplicated wine that stands well on its own or pair with the proper foods. Alough very good on its own, I have paired this wine with such things as pasta and pork chops(orange zest & marjoram)
