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.

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 become the only Napa Valley winery 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.

As we walked in we were greeted with a hearty hello from Brad. We proceeded downstairs where we were spoiled by Peter, Mike and Victoria. We enjoyed some special wines and appreciated the opportunity to taste the wines that were on sale so we could make our buying decision based on taste. Never felt pressured to buy anything but we left with more than 2 cases of wine.

been a member for years, the change in ownership and in the tasting rooms is not a good one. being a member of the "George" group it was a nice upgrade to relax and taste, however, now it seems it is too busy in the tasting room, additional taste requests were "forgotten" and generally the service level was not attentive.

We took the Heritage tour with the reserve tasting. We were blessed with an experience host, and learned much about BV's unique heritage and progressive wine making methods. There are many reasons why BV continually and successfully makes so many different reserve reds, including the flagship Georges de LaTour. Out host further demonstrated this during the tasting with a broad selection.

We had a very good experience with the Cabernet Collectors series tasting. We tasted a total of eight wines including older vintages, middle age wines and more current releases. The only negative was the room was very noisy and the acoustics made it difficult to talk to our friends unless they were in close proximity.

We had an enjoyable time, but rated the wines we tasted as above average. We did not purchase wine based on this tasting experience, but would recommend BV for its hospitality and tasting experience.

Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Collector Experience on 12/16/17 1:00 PM

We signed for the Collector's Tour which allowed us to taste some very fine Cabernets, some 17+ years old. For the price we paid for the tour, the caliber of the wines we were able to experience was exceptional. And, given their age, and fact we have kids in college, we likely wouldn't have ever had the chance to experience so many BV wines; the tour was a bargain.

This is the perfect way to experience fleet week. The ship was lovely and they did not over sell so you never felt really crowded. The food was excellent quality and there was plenty of it. They were pouring some lovely wines. My two suggestions: No wine cruise should ever run out of red wine - ever! When you have paid for an all inclusive event the pours should not be a tasting pour.
