Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany, to New York. However, after hearing that the rocky hillside soil and fertile valley floor resembled that of vineyards back home in Germany, Jacob made his way to the Napa Valley. Jacob and his brother Frederick purchased 215 acres of land in 1875, and became one of the first wineries in Napa Valley.
The Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay opens with classic notes of stone fruit, citrus and tropical pineapple, with a luscious peaches and cream character with notes of toasted almonds and nutmeg. Rich and full, well balanced with generous acidity, the wine lingers with a memorable, lasting finish.
