  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

Subtle and clean. A fairly nice blend of berries, black spice and a hint of toasted oak.

Toasty oak tones of mocha and vanilla integrate nicely with black currant and plum flavors. Excellent value. Drink now through 2005.

"This Syrah is a full-bodied wine that is lush and ripe, with a lingering finish. I'm particularly pleased with how supple and elegant the wine is, while still being satisfyingly big in flavor and style." ~Mary Sullivan Winemaker, Beringer Third Century

Beringer's talented winemaker Laurie Hook concentrates on the Syrah variety's plum and blackberry flavors, rather than its more aggressively spicy notes, for this full-bodied red. -Ray Isle From Best American Wines $15 & Under: Syrah & Petite Sirah...

Blackberry, cinnamon and sweet cream aromas give Beringer's bouquet a fresh-out-of-the-oven pie smell. This soft, supple Shiraz has juicy berry fruit, black chocolate and vanilla flavors and a clean, tart berry fruit and mineral finish. An easy-to-drink crowd-pleaser.

This Shiraz is both drinkable and complex, with deliciously intense fruit as well as a fair amount of nuance. Blackberry, black currant and berry flavors lead to deep black cherry notes. Cocoa and spice linger in a finish that is deliciously persistent. This wine beautifully complements grilled chicken or rack of lamb.
