(From 2013 Vintage) Beringer Private Reserve represents the pinnacle of the portfolio. Former Chief Winemakers Myron Nightingale and Ed Sbragia created the Private Reserve program in 1977 with the goal of crafting Napa's finest Cabernet Sauvignon. The Private Reserve Chardonnay was introduced with the 1978 vintage, and together these wines have earned three decades of extraordinary accolades, including two "Wine of the Year" awards.
The rich tropical fruit, light citrus and sweet oak aromas and flavors of Beringer Founders Estate Chardonnay make it the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes such as grilled chicken, pasta served with light cream sauce or fresh fish or scallops sautéed with a touch of lemon butter.
