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 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.

The new Member's tasting area was stark and empty. Nothing like the wonderful ambiance when it was downstairs, with all the sparkly glassware. Our server was not having his best day, and wine selections were (excellent, but) limited. I miss tasting at the bar with many wines available, in all price ranges. Next time we'll taste with the "hoi polloi" on the patio.

We had the Club tasting and it was excellent. I tried wine that I’ve never had from BV before. Our host was nice and loved to joke around. He was a bit slow but the other two hosts stepped in to pour and explain the wines. It was a slow Sunday in the late afternoon so it was quiet and we received extra service. I would highly recommend the Club tastings but not the general tasting.

Robert was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire wine-making process and did a great job of incorporating those facts with the historical significance of BV and Georges de Latour. Awesome, Outstanding job! Thank You!

The different wines were brought out at the right time, not too fast, not too slow. We also received a decent pour. Plenty to taste and enjoy. The wines we tasted were all very enjoyable and drinkable wines.

Great time doing a tasting of the reserve and other wines. Brad and Peter made us feel very welcomed and at ease - obviously, very experienced at hosting. The tasting room is a bit dated but we weren't there for a party so it didn't much matter. Added bonus was the discount that day and Rutherford Grill right next door. Turned out to be a great half-day.

For me wine and wine making is about tradition and history and no other winery can compare to Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) long history and tradition of great wine making in Napa valley. We have been long time wine club members and look forward to our quarterly trips to the winery. My very first Cabernet Sauvignon was a bottle of BV Rutterford Cab in 1978. I have been a loyal fan ever-since.

Disappointed in this tasting. We have always had a high regard for Beaulieu wines and still do, but the tasting was very unremarkable. This was one of the more expensive tastings we scheduled (total of six) and were surprised and disappointed that the hostess had no training in her five months of doing this. Also, the winery had no grounds to walk unless we paid an additional $125 each. No way.
