To achieve the perfect color in their White Merlot, Beringer’s winemaking team gently destems and presses the Merlot grapes, leaving the red skins in contact with the juice for approximately three hours. As soon as the desired soft, red-purple hue is achieved, the juice is removed. Slow, cool fermentations follow to retain the bright acidity, fresh melon and citrus flavors. The resulting wine is a vibrant blend of fresh berry and zesty orange peel flavors, with a hint of nutmeg spice.
Beringer's historic estate offers various wine tasting rooms where guests can sample an unequaled selection of fine wines and learn about winemaking. Furthermore, the winery's tasting room staff is efficient and well equipped to handle any questions guests may have about wine and can help them choose a wine that suits their preferences. Also for the benefit of our guests, there are several seminars and wine tours that run daily and allow guests to experience the best of wine country.
Beringer Vineyards also hosts many wine events that are either specifically for wine club members or for general guests as well. As an added bonus for membership, Beringer Wine Club members are privy to discounts on all purchases, complimentary wine tastings, and exclusive events hosted by the Wine Club.
