"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 »

  • Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More

  • Welcome Lorelei.  I would think that you can find Chianti's in that ... ... e.g., Robert Mondavi, Beaulieu Vineyards (BV), Louis Martini.  Many "afficianados" tend to ignore high volume producers while they praise the tiny producers that nobody else can find.  The three makers I have mentioned are widely distributed, and I would expect that y...

  • 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

  • Beaulieu Vineyard Bv Georges de Latour Private Reserve 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted this wine after having some Nebbiolo from Baja California. So, I can't say that my opinion was pristine. The wine was full-bodied and easy to drink. Not terribly fruity (which I liked) and with mellow tannins. Heck it has 14 years on it. So, the tannins should be quite civilized. US$61.99 at Wine Club, Santa Ana in 2003. Read More

  • Beaulieu Vineyard Zinfandel Coastal Estates 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is their Red Blend, not their Zin. Nice everyday wine. Zin in the nose but the Barbera comes through also. Not a wine to ponder but enjoyable. Lighter style. My rating-- 84 Read More
