This robust, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blueberry and plum, followed by ripe flavors of juicy blackberries, vanilla and a juicy finish.
A tribute to the rich Hispanic heritage ingrained in the area, “Los Hermanos” was the name of original 215 acre vineyard where, in 1876, the Beringer Brothers began what was to become one of Napa Valley’s most iconic wineries. Jacob and Fredrick Beringer were only the fourth title owners of the land that was originally part of the Rancho Carne Humana land grant offered by the Mexican Government in 1821. Today, we look at our past to influence our future, and begin a new tradition in celebrating our heritage in every bottle of Los Hermanos Vineyards wine.
|Beringer Vineyards – The Beginning
Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the splendid opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany to New York. However, New York did not appeal to Jacob and after hearing that the warm and Mediterranean plains of California were quite similar to the vineyards back home, he soon made his way to the Napa Valley. It was here that Jacob Beringer, along with his brother, Frederick Beringer, purchased land for the first Beringer Vineyard in 1875.
Beringer Vineyards – Today
Beringer Vineyards holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley. It is also one of the very few wineries that survived the draconian prohibition of 1922, which lasted over a decade. The estate is also in the National Register for Historic Places as a historic district, a status it has held since 2001. With its perfect blend of modern technology and age old traditions, Beringer Vineyards still produces memorable wines that continue to bring recognition to the company and all of Napa Valley.
