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

I had the limited edition version produced for Sandals Resorts, 2008 vintage. I used it as a base to make Sangria, which is what the resort did as well. The resort used Ugle fruit and fig; it was so wonderful I brought a bottle home to try and make my own. I used blackberries, pineapple, and sugar. I love red wines that are on the sweeter side (not super dry or minerally) and this wine was wonderful. I dont usually find myself to be a Cabernet drinker, and this wine is one of my favorites. By itself, it is a very well balanced wine, very smooth, very sweet, VERY tasty!

Cabernet Sauvignon lush black fruit and intense cassis flavors that compliment the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish.

Round, with good depth to currant, dried raspberry and fresh herb flavors that firm up on the tannic finish. Good Cab for the money. Drink now through 2005.

An explosion of berry and currant flavors laced with hints of spice and soft tannins.

The deep ruby color of this wine is the first hint of layers of currant, blueberry, clove and tobacco that unfold in the mouth. Barrel aging enhances a supporting structure that makes this wine a perfect dinner match with thyme-encrusted roasted pork chops or hamburgers in bleu-cheese and mushrooms.
