Beringer Rhine House, Napa Valley
Beringer is the oldest winery in Napa Valley, and perhaps the best known too. They're famous for rich "big" cabernets and have won many awards. We stopped for a short visit at the house and grounds, though it was too early in the day to enjoy a wine tasting as we had just finished brunch. We did enjoy a nice chat with the tasting room attendant, since she had no other customers on a Monday morning, and we learned a lot about the different grapes and growing process.
