The "Beringer Vineyards" in St. Helena in California Napa Valley was founded in 1876 by the brothers Jakob (1845-1915) and Frederick Beringer (1840-1901) who had immigrated from Germany. The "Rhine House", built a little later in the Rheingau half-timbered style in 1883, is now a tourist attraction. A cellar with ideal conditions for winemaking was carved into the rocks below this house. The total area of vines today is over 1,200 hectares, of which almost 250 are in the Napa Valley. Cellar master since 1984 is Ed Sbragia. He created the “Private Reserve” from Cabernet Sauvignon, which is considered the best wine today, and is also available from Chardonnay. Other lines are called California Collection, Founders Estate, Knights Valley, Napa Valley, Stone Cellars and Third Century. After several changes of ownership (for example Nestlé), Beringer became the property of the Australian beer brewer giant in 2000 Foster's who was the Australian group back in 1996 Mildara pale had bought. The huge winery group first operated as Beringer Blass, then as Foster's Wine Estates and was finally named in 2011 as a separate company Treasury Wine Estates outsourced.
