"Beau lieu" - A Beautiful Story about a Beautiful Place 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 sold his thriving cream of tartar business, 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 Read more »

  • Bv Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2011


    What a disappointment. my mother picked up a bottle of this for me while visiting. I love her, but she has terrible taste. An over extracted mess of a wine, absolutely falling apart at the seams like a wet paper lunch bag. No mid palate, with an overwhelming bite at the back-end ruining all that fruit they had focused on in the first place. I st... Read More

  • Beaulieu Vineyards Napa Cabernet 2007


    Living north of the 40th parallel, these winters just howl for a big, hearty red wine! A wine that will thicken your blood and make you feel just that much warmer.

I researched and sear... Read More

  • Hi allJust signed up and looking forward to learning about wines. I favour red over white but like both. So far my favs tend to be Italian chianti but I do really the Californian Beringer cabernets. I unfortunately cannot afford to spend a big lot on purchases and tend to stick to those priced from $20 to $30 Canadian. Although Canadian, I haven... Read More
