In 1900, Georges de Latour arrived to find Napa Valley planted to orchards of walnuts and prunes. His vision for making wines that would rival those of Europe helped establish what has become one of the most important wine regions the world over.
When Georges and Fernande de Latour first traveled to the heart of Napa Valley in 1900, Fernande took one look at the lovely Rutherford expanse and exclaimed "beau lieu," or "beautiful place."
