Beaulieu Vineyard was founded in 1900 near Rutherford, California, when Georges de Latour and his wife, Fernande, purchased a 4-acre plot of land. According to legend, when Fernande first saw the area, she cried, "Quel beau lieu!" (What a lovely site!) and the name "Beaulieu Vineyard" was born.
During Prohibition, demand for this wine skyrocketed, and the winery only expanded. Production had risen to over 1 million gallons per year by the time Prohibition was lifted in 1933. Beaulieu subsequently employed Andre Tchelistcheff, a French winemaker who considerably improved the quality of the wines. Beaulieu Vineyard, together with Inglenook, Charles Krug, and Louis Martini, was considered one of the "big four" Napa Valley producers in the 1950s and 1960s.
BV's California Cabernet Sauvignon comes from some of the state's most well-known and up-and-coming appellations. Their grapes grow with exceptional intensity and taste in vineyards in Lodi, the California Delta, and along the coast. The vineyards are warmed by the sun during the day and cooled by the sea at night, providing even and consistent ripening. The mix of these locations produces a rich and well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.
Beaulieu Vineyard's 2017 BV Red Label California Cabernet Sauvignon is now available at TastingRoom. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a round mouthfeel, supple tannins, and a long, lingering finish, with notes of black cherry, raspberry, vanilla, and cinnamon spice. It's a versatile wine that goes well with grilled rib-eye steaks, roasted veggies, and aged cheese.
Enjoy this wonderful wine in the backyard with friends and family throughout the summer months!
