Since 1876, Beringer has been a pioneer in California winemaking. We were the first winery to experiment with gravity-flow fermentation techniques; we dug the first naturally temperature-controlled caves by hand in the 1880s; and were the first winery to open our doors to tourism after Prohibition. In the 1960s we pioneered vineyard development in Knights Valley, a small and ruggedly beautiful region just northwest of the Beringer winery. Then in the 1970s, at the start of Central Coast winemaking, we started developing our holdings in this region.
Now, as a result of decades of pioneering, Beringer farms a diverse and expressive series of vineyards across Napa Valley, Knights Valley and Paso Robles. Beringer Regional Estates wines celebrate the range of vineyard expressions found in these sites. Each wine label showcases an illustration of the leading vineyard in that wine. As with all of our sites, the vineyards that contribute to these wines are entirely sustainably farmed. This collection includes our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles Red Blend “The Waymaker,” and Napa Valley Chardonnay.
