Beringer Vineyards, Napa Valley (St Helena)

Beringer Vineyards in St. Helena, Napa Valley. The Beringer winery dates back to 1875 by two Germany brothers Jacob and Frederick Beringer. It is one of the larger winery in Napa Valley and the oldest continuously operating in Napa Valley. The tasting room is located in a grand Victorian mansion with tours of the historic wine caves daily. Beringer Vineyards is no longer owned and operated by the family, but instead after being sold to Nestle in 1971, it is now owned by Treasury Wine Estates.

Beringer Vineyard is grand with a gated entrance and a short drive into the estate. There are two separate tasting rooms: Old Winery, and Reserve Tasting Room.

There was a special chocolate tasting flight with their fine reds. We were still a bit full from Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant at CIA, so we opted for just a flight of winery exclusives.

2012 Riesling: intense flavors of apricot, citrus, and a hint of freshly grated ginger. This wine is refreshing and sweet.

2011 Sangiovese – 3 Acre Knight Valley: A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. This wine had intense fruit flavors of cherry and notes of cola, cardamom and a pop of wild fennel. This was the driest of the three selection and was closest to a Shiraz. I did not particularly enjoy this glass and found it chalky. Perhaps it is the cardamom I’m not a fan of.

2011 Chardonnay Stanly Ranch: I feel that lately I gravitate more towards white vino instead of my go to Shiraz. Perhaps it is the heat. This blanc was full of citrus flavors and minerals with a creamy smooth finish. I liked this one most.

 

After our flight in the Old Winery Tasting Room, we headed to the Reserve Tasting Room. Disappointed there wasn’t anyone there. We were told earlier that November was the tail end of their busy season as autumn approached.

Beringer Vineyard is beautiful with the changing colors of autumn leaves that we couldn’t help ourselves to a few photos. Beringer Vineyards makes for a great photo shoot location, that we took a few engagement photos along the way. You will need to wait to see those while we plan out our wedding details.
