Fredrick and Jacob Berringer, immigrants from Mainz, Germany, bought their first plot of land in Napa Valley, California, in 1875.
The valley area reminded them of their old familiar Rhine Valley in Germany. The older brother, Fredrick, longing to recreate their old family home, began construction of the Rhine House in 1883.
