Beringer Vineyards, founded in 1875, is the oldest continuously operated winery in Napa Valley. It’s known for establishing “firsts” as leaders in the wine industry. Beringer reportedly was one of the first gravity-fed facilities and among the first to operate using hand-dug caves and cellars. The company also was the first to give public tours in 1934, starting a Napa Valley hospitality tradition. Another first for Beringer is that it’s the only winery to have both a red and a white named #1 Wine of the Year by Spectator Magazine.

About Ryan Rech: He has more than 12 years winemaking experience and has worked on noted wine brands from California, including Toasted Head, Souverain and Chateau St. Jean. His interest in winemaking began when he was a student at California State University in Fresno.

Rech will share insight about the wines served at the One Eleven wine dinner, explaining what the Beringer team of winemakers were looking for in the final product and how they expect the age-worthy wines to transform in the future.

Bon appétit and cheers!
