About Beaulieu Vineyard

For more than 116 years, Beaulieu Vineyard has set the standard for crafting California wines that stand among the world’s finest. Beaulieu's rich history and storied vineyards offer the visitor a unique opportunity to experience the finest of Napa Valley.

Read More

In 1900, when Georges de Latour's wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it "beau lieu," or "beautiful place." Shortly thereafter, de Latour bought the four-acre ranch and founded Beaulieu Vineyard with the vision of making Napa Valley wines that would rival those of his native France.

De Latour quickly made a name for himself by importing Phylloxera-resistant rootstock from Europe to the recently-ravaged fledgling California wine industry. He also began selling wine to the Catholic Church, establishing a strong relationship that would allow Beaulieu Vineyard to remain in business during Prohibition.

In fact, during Prohibition the winery increased its business. After the repeal in 1933, de Latour began searching for someone who could contribute European winemaking expertise. In 1938, he traveled to France and returned with André Tchelistcheff, the famed viticulturist and innovative enologist. Tchelistcheff introduced cold fermentation for white wines, malolactic fermentation for reds and aging red wines in small, French oak barrels. He also insisted that the de Latour family's private Cabernet-based wine-what they called "Private Reserve"-be bottled and sold as the winery’s flagship offering. The result was the inaugural 1936 vintage of the Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that was destined to become Napa Valley's first "cult" Cabernet.


The winery will be closed: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day and close early at 3pm on Thanksgiving Eve, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve.

Robert was outstanding very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our tasting but feel it could be improved regarding the Legend tour. For the amount of money we paid it was not worth it. Reasons: tasting only had enough wine for one sip or so. Had to ask for more if we liked it. Second reason There were no cheeses to compliment the wines. For $270 there should of been. Other tasting Had them for less $

It was all about the wines, which were exactly what we were hoping for. I would go back again. This was a great experience. Some wineries are about the location. This is not Beaulieu. This is old Napa at it’s best.

To be honest, this was our least favorite stop out of 6 wineries we visited in Napa & Sonoma for our 2 days there. We did the basic tasting and the staff did not seem to be very welcoming and the wine tasting room was not very exciting. For the cost, it was a disappointment for staff and ambiance. We 'heard' the Reserve tasting was much nicer but did not want to spend that much.

It was set up as a bar with your host behind the bar talking to you about the wines and what they were pouring. They served a small plate of tasty Manchego which went very well with the wine.

We initially went to the main tasting room. We were at the wrong tasting room. The gentleman escorting us over informed the guy running the tasting that we had reservations. The guy running the tasting seemed to very annoyed that we had showed up. He was more attentive to the first group he was working with when we came in than with us. I wouldn't recommend.

We visited previously and the hospitality and experience was amazing, which was the reason we were so eager to go back during this trip. I must say this experience was very generic. We were greeted by a guy in an untucked t shirt. He seemed very rushed. All wines were poured in less than 15 minutes. He also was very eager to sell on sale Magnum bottles as opposed current reserve selections.

Would not recommend. Made a mistake on the reservation and missed our slot (completely on me). BV said they would honor the reservation if I paid an extra $150. The manager mentioned due to my error, they would make it a special experience. Winery is based in a shopping center and we were brought to the cellar and were given 4 mediocre wines. By far the most underwhelming experience I had in Napa

I initially had a great experience - we were taken downstairs where the staff was very friendly and had great tidbits about the wine and winery. But I left with a sour taste in my mouth because when I went back upstairs to "the club room" to take a picture, one of the staff members chastised me in a very condescending way. I don't know if I'll be back given all other great options in Napa.
