Beaulieu Vineyard, established in 1900, is a historic Napa Valley winery with a tradition of quality and innovation. Founded by French immigrant, Georges de Latour, Beaulieu Vineyard set early standards for excellence in premium winemaking and was the first reserve Cabernet produced in America and has been a benchmark in California winemaking since the first vintage in 1936.
Last year’s 27 liter presentation bottle featured over 65 signatures representing Emmy winners, nominees and presenters and resulted in a contribution of $8000 to the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation.
