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.

BV always has a nice welcoming atmosphere as well as well-trained attendants. The last 2 times, however, it seems like either the business is short-staffed or experiencing other appointment problems. Just feels more chaotic than some of my other Vineyard tastings. On last 2 visits, which were bothscheduled, there was a slight delay in start times. I sensed short staffed-ness both times.

It was a girls weekend for mother and daughters and they treated us very well. We swirled and sipped out of the custom glass Riedel designed specifically for older vintage big body red wine. My daughter was so impressed she bought one to take home - quite a coup for BV if you know my daughter and her relation ship with $. We have been BV Wine Club members for years and love it.

The atmosphere in the estate tasting patio was nice. But when we walked into the building we were not greeted by staff, they seemed confused, like they did not know they had a scheduled tasting. We waited again for them to find someone to seat us. During our tasting the employee went all over with the tasting and was not knowledgeable of their wines, even admitting that he didn't know much to us.

Property is beautiful. We had booked a patio tasting and a young man escorted us to the patio, did not introduce himself, poured us a wine and walked off. Like left the premises! We sat for at least 15 minutes until someone took over who knew absolutely nothing about the wines. I’d ask a question and he would look at and read me the label. This was a very poor experience. Would never go back!

When we got there they had placed another group in our place and only sat us at the bar. The host did nothing to try to make us happy given the mix up and quite frankly he didn’t even care.
