Fodor's Review

The influential André Tchelistcheff (1901–1994), who helped define the California style of wine making, worked his magic here for many years. BV, founded in 1900 by Georges de Latour and his wife, Fernande, is known for its widely distributed Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon wines, but many others are produced in small lots and are available only at the winery. The most famous of the small-lot wines is the flagship Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, first crafted by Tchelistcheff himself in the late 1930s. Reservations are required for some tastings here. Book a Retrospective Reserve Tasting ($75) to taste the current Georges de Latour and older vintages of it and other limited-production wines.
