Yazoo Brewing really started with a homebrewing kit bought from the back pages of Rolling Stone in 1993. I was a cash-poor college student living in an old farmhouse in Virginia, and brewing my own beer seemed a little less illegal than the pot-growing operation my other housemates were involved in. I was amazed that I could make something that actually tasted like beer at home! I kept on brewing, even when my wife Lila and I returned home to Mississippi after college, and then when we moved to Nashville in 1996. LEARN MORE

To answer an often-asked question, the New City is nothing like the Old City…at least not one that anyone alive today has ever tasted. The new Falls City Beer is an Extra Special English Pale Ale. It is a “session beer”, similar to the pale ale Falls City made back in the 1930’s. Falls City was Louisville’s original micro-brewery with several different varieties of beer (including a Pale Ale). We intend to continue that tradition and appeal to the palates of all types of beer enthusiasts with seasonal beers. For now, our only brew is a really nice ale which is full-bodied and well-balanced with a nice finish. It is less hoppy than typical American Pale Ales, so the third and fourth ones are just as much fun to drink as the first. So if you’re disappointed (or relieved) we’re “not like the old Falls City”, we are! -- just more like the really old Falls City. LEARN MORE

Marlborough's worst ever fire on  Boxing Day 2000, burnt 6,000 hectares (almost 15,000 acres) the course of three days, killed thousands of livestock and threatened the wine town of Blenheim, as well as a number of vineyards and wineries. Disaster was avoided by the brave residents, of what is now known as Fireroad, who battled the blaze by using buckets and hand held hoses and were eventually assisted by a fortunate wind shift. The Fireroad vineyards flourish in the same hot and dry climate that was the catalyst for such a mighty blaze.

Tortoise Creek is a range of very fine varietal wines from the Languedoc district of the South of France and the Lodi region of California.  The concept with Tortoise Creek was to work more with the individual grower and less with the large cooperatives as they understood that the key to any good wine, whether it is from the Languedoc, California, or any other wine region was "low yields." With that in mind, Tortoise Creek wines have been selected and blended from growers who understand this philosophy. We work closely with our growers in California and France to hand craft our selections. LEARN MORE

Every American-made mason jar raised to honor the fiercely independent spirit of America and filled with just the right blend of corn, sugar, water and roots that trace all the way back to the hills of Appalachia. Three distinct flavors – Original, Apple Pie and Dixie – all made to pay homage to the past and to continue telling the story of the smooth side of a rough history. LEARN MORE

Felons, running roughshod over London town, were menacing good people, wreaking havoc and, caught by the scores, clogging every jail in the kingdom. A civic dilemma of colossal proportions.

Meanwhile, two oceans away, a newly claimed and virgin continent was in dire need of subjects to bring civilization to bear. Yet the voyage was endless and brutal, the rewards meager to nil.

The savagely elegant solution: Punishment by Transportation.

A list of 19 Crimes was drawn. Conviction meant a torturous journey to an unknown and unforgiving land.

Australia, thus, was born.

Passion has the wonderful power to turn mere objects into an obsession, to transform everyday tasks into art. At Beringer, we have been living our passion for over 138 years.

Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany, to New York. However, after hearing that the rocky hillside soil and fertile valley floor resembled that of vineyards back home in Germany, Jacob made his way to the Napa Valley. Jacob and his brother Frederick purchased 215 acres of land in 1875, and became one of the first wineries in Napa Valley.

Since then, we have honed, deepened, and expanded the art of winemaking. We pursue balance between modern technology and time-tested winemaking traditions, resulting in wines of global recognition. LEARN MORE
