Beringer is California’s longest continuously operating winery. It has become one of the largest and most distributed American labels, and is known for its range of wines, from affordable table wines to fine single-vineyard cuvées and a private reserve label.
Beringer’s most lauded range is the Private Reserve label, offering wines made from Cabernet Sauvingon and a Chardonnay. The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon was named number one in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 of 1990, and the 1994 Chardonnay was named number one in the 1996 edition. Beringer was the first producer to have both a white wine and a red wine be named number one in the list.
