Winemaker's Notes:

A tribute to three centuries of winemaking excellence, this collection reflects Beringer's time-honored heritage. Each wine has been expressly crafted to inspire today's discerning palate as it forms a bridge between past, present and future. With Third Century, the oldest continuously operating winery in the Napa Valley invites a new generation to experience the timeless pleasure of Beringer wines.

This fully integrated wine delivers the brightest and most sought-after characteristics of a great Chardonnay. Tropical aromas and flavors with hints of green apples and juicy pears delight the palate while balanced acidity and hints of oak deliver a smooth, satisfying finish.

About Beringer Vineyards:

No winery or vineyard more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and seductive flavor of Napa Valley than Beringer Vineyards, Napa's benchmark producer since the establishment of the vineyard in 1876.

Now in its third century of crafting classic wines from Napa's finest appellations and vineyards, Beringer today is guided by the inspired partnership of celebrated Winemaster Emeritus Ed Sbragia and Winemaker Laurie Hook. Together, they craft Napa Valley wines that speak eloquently of the rich heritage of the Beringer Vineyard, while offering cutting-edge quality and contemporary elegance. The exquisite wines crafted at the Beringer Vineyards display a single minded dedication and pursuit of excellence instilled by its founder, Jacob Beringer.
