Over a hundred years ago, when George de Latour and his wife were on their first visit to the Napa Valley. They exclaimed “beau lieu” upon seeing what would soon be their property. De Latour imported Phylloxera-resistant rootstock from Europe, recently-ravaged fledgling California wine industry. When prohibition hit and most wineries shuttered, BV increased its business by fourfold. Selling sacramental wines to Catholic Church’s.
The repeal in 1933, Georges de Latour became dedicated to the research and innovation. Bringing about his Rutherford Estate’s finest expression. His philosophy of continuous innovation in vineyard and winery remain dedicated until today. In 1940, Beaulieu Vineyard released the first vintage of Private Reserve and named it founder’s honor. The resulting wine became the first release of a wine to become Napa Valley’s first “cult” Cabernet.
