Clarksburg Winery Collective

Heringer Estates Winery

In the heart of Clarksburg, California, Heringer Estates weaves the tale of a family’s enduring legacy, tracing its roots back to 1868 when John Heringa, a visionary from Holland, chose the fertile lands of the Sacramento River Delta as his new home. With a dream to farm and establish a legacy, the Heringer family embarked on a journey that has flourished through seven generations. The 1970s marked a pivotal moment as the family planted their first vineyard, heralding the inception of Clarksburg Wine Country and diversifying the agricultural tapestry of California.

Today, Heringer Estates is a testament to the family’s bootstrapping determination and love for their land and community. Producing over 30 certified sustainable wines, the estate has become synonymous with quality and innovation. Through a customizable wine club, hosting private events and weddings, and welcoming guests to their tasting room for daily wine experiences, Heringer Estates embodies the warmth and hospitality that is at the core of their family’s values.

The winemaking vision at Heringer Estates is led by Mike Heringer, a California State University, Fresno graduate who established the estate in 2003. For Mike, winemaking is more than a profession—it’s a passion fueled by his love for family and the rich history of Clarksburg. His dedication to showcasing the Clarksburg AVA and allowing the wine grapes to express their true character is evident in every bottle. Meanwhile, Stephen F. Heringer IV, after a distinguished 12-year military career, has taken the helm of the vineyard and general management, ensuring the continuation of the family’s farming legacy with the same meticulous attention to detail.

The estate’s wine club is ingeniously managed by Stacy Heringer-McElfish, who, with a background in recreation and special events, has created a multi-tiered club offering unparalleled benefits and exclusive events, fostering a close-knit community of wine lovers. Behind the scenes, the senior Heringers, Steve, and Donna, alongside the foundational support of Marjorie and Lester Heringer, have been instrumental in nurturing the family business, embodying the spirit of community and resilience.

Heringer Estates celebrates family, heritage, and the joy of sharing the fruits of their labor with the community. With sustainable practices at the forefront of their vineyard management, the estate is committed to producing the finest wines while preserving the beauty and health of the land for future generations. As the Heringer family looks forward to continuing their legacy, they invite you to join them in experiencing the embodiment of their passion, history, and dedication to excellence—a toast to the community and wine lovers everywhere, from their family to yours.
