In 1875 the Beringer brothers, Jacob and Frederick, came to Napa Valley from Germany with the goal of making wines that compared to the best in Europe. They established Beringer Vineyards in 1876 and began making world-class wines from this previously undiscovered region. Since then, Beringer has built a remarkable winemaking history and legacy crafting renowned wines from a prized collection of Napa Valley vineyards, celebrating the uniqueness of each site. As the longest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley, Beringer offers a trusted name and established record of quality. Now in their third century of crafting classic wines, they honor the passion of their winemaking pioneers with wines that embrace the future and speak eloquently of Beringer's rich heritage.
