Ever since the days of Georges de Latour, winemaking at Beaulieu Vineyard has been a holistic affair. Beaulieu Vineyard’s reputation for quality and consistency stems from long experience in identifying the best vineyards, learning how to manage them, and then translating that knowledge with the appropriate winemaking techniques into fine wine. The quality and consistency of BV wines is dependent on their ability to grow the best grapes and work with other growers who share their commitment to quality.
Arguably Americas most important wine growing region, home to the likes of Dominus, Heitz, Cain Cellars and Opus One. Bordeaux varietals are key in this 40 mile long North-South valley that stretches from the San Fransico Bay up towards Calistoga and the sheer variety of different climats and vineyard sites is as bewildering as the sheer variety of styles of wine produced. At their best these can be some of the most opulent examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world - truly great wines with dinstinctly long cellaring potentials, but more youthful approachability than their european counterparts.
