  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

On a few of the hottest days of summer this one satisfies the soul. It's sweet, simple, innocent, and full of fresh strawberries. It's probably the only type of wine I ever drink with ice cubes. It was especially good when I had made a beef stock and I was left with the bones in the bottom of the pot. They(the bones) were left with a gelatin layer infused with the spirit of the marrow after hours of being boiled. As a meal, such fare would soon become overrich, but it paired perfectly with this beringer rose wine on a scorching day. The memories are good ones.

I didn't feel like it had much of a taste to it. Though for the price it was a nice, but very sweet wine

This is a great wine. It is sweet so if you are not a fan of sweet wines then it is not for you. However it is one of the best wines I have ever had.

Nice colour, pleasant smell of berries. Sweet, but not too sweet, very easy to drink, quite enjoyable wine. You could get really drunk with this if you're not careful, its friendly nature and 10% alcohol content will keep you refilling. It's not interesting enough to warrant a higher score but I don't think there is anything wrong with this wine. I enjoyed it and I would buy it again as an everyday wine.

Not too bad as a dessert wine, a bit on the sweet side

The nose has lovely floral notes that are reminiscent of the wonderfully refreshing Spumantes of Italy, with citrus and strawberry fruit nuances. The palate begins with a nice, classic mousse mouthfeel, and strawberry, brown spice and citrus flavors interplay with a refreshing acidity that carries everything into a long, delicious finish.

In Beringer White Zinfandel, the focus is to highlight the fresh red berry, citrus and melon aromas and flavors, and round them out with subtle hints of nutmeg and clove. The wine has a youthful exuberance that is enjoyable as a sipper on its own, or with a variety of dishes.
