Beringer Vineyards

Tasting event: 10:30am – 12:30pm

This tour departs San Francisco taking into the St Helena appellation, and we are indeed honored to be able to include the historic and beautiful Beringer Vineyards. Having sourced many other vineyard locations since its inception, none other than Knights Valley vineyards, which they have owned and farmed since the mid-1960s. The Beringer family recognized that the cobbled, rocky alluvial soils were a great place to grow high quality wine grapes. 

An intimate tasting tour experience on their property where you will savor a tasting of three wine varietals. Your tour will start in front of the old winery where you will enjoy the first taste of wine, currently release of an Alluvium Blanc, a Bordeaux-style white wine that is redefining Knights Valley’s potential beyond reds. Continuing on the walking tour through the caves where you will be presented your second tasting, a Pinot Noir continuing on through the winemaker alley with a Cabernet Sauvignon rounding off the tasting experience.

About Beringer

148 years of wine making dating back to 1876, Beringer Vineyard is the longest continually operating winery in California. They were one of the first gravity fed facilities and among the first to operate using hand-dug caves and cellars. First to give public tours in 1934, starting a Napa Valley hospitality tradition. They are the first and only winery to have both a red and a white wine named #1 Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator Magazine.
