Beaulieu to Build New State-of-the-Art Winery

Napa winery slated to open 2008.



Seventy-one years after producing its first Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon—Beaulieu's top wine—Beaulieu announced plans to build a special new, standalone winery production facility dedicated entirely to that California and American wine icon.

The new winery, located on Highway 29 in Napa Valley, is housed in a completely renovated building that currently stands on Beaulieu's property. According to spokesman Tom Scott the winery will be ready in time for the 2008 harvest. The facility will not be open to the public, as is Beaulieu's main winery building, where all of the Napa Valley and Carneros wines have been made until now.

A trade tasting area, with historical exhibits, is slated to open in the new winery in 2009.

Beaulieu's vice president of winemaking, Joel Aiken, says the new winery will be state-of-the-art, with new barrel and stainless-steel fermenters, facility-wide temperature control, and other technological improvements
