LaTour Vineyards is a small, family owned winery located at the top of Napa Valley's Mt Veeder. We have 25 acres planted in Chardonnay and Syrah. LaTour Vineyards is owned by former restauranteur and hotelier, Tom LaTour. Tom loves to entertain and wanted to produce outstanding wines that are affordable enough to share with friends. – Description from Adam Levin

  • I was at a wine event in Yountville yesterday where they were pouring a number of high end Napa Cabs. While there were a number of Bordeaux styled blends I figure you want expressions of Napa and not wines trying to be like wine from somewhere else. In the Cabernet Sauvignon camp there were not a lot of standouts in the widely available realm.20... Read More

  • No doubt when Spanish conquistador Pedro Gutierrez de Valdivia founded the city of Santiago in 1541, he was not thinking of viticulture. However, today the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys produce some of the finest Bordeaux influenced wines in the world. Chile gained its independence from Spain in the early 1800’s, by mid-century the Chilean economy... Read More

  • HelloTom! We had a lot of fun catching up with old friends. Some I recognized and a few I didn't; a very enjoyable night. I want to thank you for the wine; can't wait to enjoy it with my family; they love wine! I have 5 children and 14 grandchildren and my last child, Ashley born 5 months after Jim passed , is to give birth any day now with her ...

  • OT, how do you place Insignia or Dominus or Mayacamas or Heitz Martha's or others from Napa's storied past? I was a bit surprised to see Montelena in the list below. Do we want to track specific winemakers and consultants?   So here're excerpts from the Wikipedia page on cult wines. Are these the definitions we want? Cult wines are those for whi... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • I found your site when I was searching for information on the Arcadian Winery of the Finger Lakes. The reason, you ask?  I opened a bottle of pinot noir from this very estate for guests at a dinner party at our home, not realizing it was the only such bottle that my boyfriend owned, and that the winery no longer existed.  The wine was enjoyed by...

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • Oh, boy, that's some gorgeous fruit.  Looks like a third epic vintage in a row.  Any chance of tasting that from barrel? Sadly, there was a time, before all these vineyards were known to the hedge fund managers by name, when you could buy a wine with ToKalon fruit on a mere public sector lawyer's salary.  Now I have to make nice--oh, wait, you'r...
