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 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.

Today we continue to innovate to craft wines in our bold, classic style. We have become a leader in clonal research, and our BV Clone Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon wines are highly acclaimed. Most recently we completed a new state-of-the-art winery within one of our original buildings. The Georges de Latour Private Reserve Winery utilizes the latest technology in combination with time-honored traditions for the production of this exceptional, wine-the longtime benchmark of Rutherford Cabernet.

Excellent winery with a lot of history. Make sure and get the flight of old wines from their library so that you can try wines from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and now.

it was a great time however, I wish we were in the bay for the entire airshow. we didn't get past the Bay bridge until about 2:30, and really only saw the Blue Angels. I think the boat should be in position by 1:00 at the latest. but otherwise, it was a great time.

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.

We will recommend this site if what they want is to sit in a beautiful patio setting and sip delicious wine and enjoy a gracious hostess! thank-you so much! Terri and Rick Jones, Kansas

We reserved a patio tasting, but when we arrived, BV had no clue where we were supposed to be. We ended up with a larger group that was there to tour the winery, which we had already seen. No one had us on a list for the tasting and they put us at a small table that was the only space left in the downstairs tasting room. The entire experience was horrible - and we are members!!

Trying to get tickets online was not possible. CellarPass could not process the GLD Club I am in which allowed 4 free tickets and $35 after that. You wanted to charge full price of some $210. BV was great on the first call to fix this. I have already emailed an in-depth response to BV on how the event went. But thank you for asking. Work on your side first

No longer a member since members pay for the VIP bar. The tasting room is to small downstairs we waited 30 minutes no tables opened up so we left. VIP outdoor area most pay for members?! why would I want to be member when the service is overwhelmed and we have to pay $50 per person? 20% discount is not worth it. I can buy from Safeway or go somewhere else.

After a couple stops around the area, people helping us with our tastings mentioned BV as one of the oldest running wineries in the area, so we decided to give it a shot between our other scheduled tastings. We made a last minute res for the patio tasting. The staff was nice, and the patio was pretty, but the wine itself was ok. Certainly not bad. Quite enjoyed the rose. But just ok.

We had pre-purchased a reserve patio tasting. When we arrived at the vineyard, we were told that a previous group had been on the patio for a private event and the staff just didn't get to cleaning it up, so the patio was closed. We were then herded downstairs into a freezing cold space and rushed out of there after about half an hour. Very disappointing, certainly not worth $85.
