Service: They main entrance is breathtaking and beautiful. They have two gift shops, the house with the black roof and at the main building where tasting take place. The main entrance where you tickets is next to the Beringer sign, you take the stairs and sit out side while the tour guide appears. The tour guides are nice and funny.
Food/wine: I tried a sweet Rose, a Chardonnay, and Cabernet. I loved the sweet rose because it was bubbly and had a nice citrus flavor. The Chardonnay had an oak smell and light buttery taste. The red was strong bold flavor; great for meat dishes.

They also offer food and chocolate pairings. You can make reservations online, by phone or on site. Last minute walk ins are allowed.
