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 2014 Beringer Quantum offers inviting aromas of black cherry, roasted espresso and leather. Notes of ripe plum, vanilla and boysenberry jam are accented by subtle brown spice. This rich, fleshy wine has incredibly silky tannins and a lush, rounded profile making it easy to enjoy in its youth.
