3.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Napa Valley's oldest continuously operating winery, Beringer Vineyards was established in 1873. Now on a World Heritage site, the winery burst onto the world scene in 1939, when Hollywood stars Clark Cable and Carole Lombard visited. The first of California's wineries open to the public after Prohibition, the winery continues to draw wine enthusiasts from around the globe. Join the winery's daily "legacy" tour for a look at traditional methods of winemaking. Visitors must be over 21 to take the tour, which includes tastings from barrels as well as bottles.

  • Loved this place!! The grounds alone are so spectacular we spent most of the time wandering around and stopping to read historical information about the family and business which was very interesting! 
  • We attended a late afternoon legacy cave tour ($35 for 30 minutes & 4 wine samples including a dessert wine). The tour was brief but informative and focused on historical wine making rather than curre...  read more »
  • We did an afternoon Legacy Cave Tour. Whilst very interesting (the expanse of caves is huge) they pack in way too many people and its very inpersonal. A tasting at the end of some nice wine, an obliga...  read more »
  • Terrible place! Staff was rude and unhelpful. We purchased their wine and opener but they wouldn't even let us open it outside while on their premises. Samplers were overpriced, small and not good. Don't waste your time here. Go to another winery.
  • This of course is a large Winery which Mass produces a lot of wine. Some of their Reds are okay but overall it's a medium quality bottle of wine. There are some decent read that I have enjoyed in the past and some of their mid-level wines are very good for the price
  • Great history and the tour and tasting is well integrated. Very wheelchair accessible grounds. Bathrooms are accessible and they have a lift on site to get people who can't handle stairs.
  • Interesting vineyard to visit as it one of the oldest vineyards in Napa. Wine is good but prices are too high
  • We took the short tour, which takes 30 minutes and guides you through the cellar. The four wines we could try were mediocre at best, only the desert wine was ok. You don't get into the Beringer house itself as part of the cheaper tour, which is a bit disappointing, because that is really a nice and interesting building. In general the wines are way too expensive for what they offer - at least compared to what you get in Europe. $40 for the desert wine, $25+ for the reds seem way of.
