Venue Setting

Beaulieu Garden is a private, family-owned estate and is one of the oldest wine producing vineyards in the Napa Valley. In 1899 French winemaker Georges de Latour purchased a parcel of farm land and planted the first 600 acres of European grape stock in the Napa Valley. He came to the Valley with the intention of growing French grapes in California and decided to surprise his wife, Fernande, with this stunning piece of property. When she saw the land she exclaimed “Quel beau lieu” which translates what a beautiful place. And thus became the name of this extraordinary private estate in Rutherford.

Georges de Latour was intent on producing a quality wine in the French tradition, and he imported hundreds of thousands of grafted vines to California to establish Beaulieu Vineyard. The family sold Beaulieu Vineyard in the late 1960s and today grapes grown on the property are used exclusively to make the Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Beaulieu Garden remains in the family of Georges and Fernande de Latour and their great and great-great grandchildren continue to spend time at their home on the estate.

Venue Features
The Scene:
The quarter mile drive leading into the estate is lined with magnificent sycamore trees with their leafy branches touching overhead to provide an elegant canopy entrance. You may choose to hold your ceremony or an intimate dinner in the sunken garden with a stone pool of lilies and a cherub fountain with water spilling from it. Or dinner can be served under an immense sycamore arbor with dappled light during the day and dramatic lighting as night falls. Imagine dancing under the stars next to a sparkling pool with manicured lawns and grape vines stretching to the rolling hills in the distance.
Design:
The possibilities for your event are limited only by your imagination. Beaulieu Garden is a stunning event site with formal gardens that reflect the European influence of the de Latour family. Old stone fountains, reflecting pools and elegant statues are tucked throughout the park-like gardens. Just beyond the original stone winery is a beautiful thick sycamore arbor which is the perfect setting for al fresco dinners. It is intimate and private and perfect for romantic weddings or corporate gatherings. For one day this very special venue could be yours.

When your wine country wedding involves a Sycamore arbor, chandeliers sparkling under the moonlight, vineyard views, and beautiful sunken gardens, you know you’ve done a few things right. Go ahead and pour a glass of California sparkling before you read on, because this Beaulieu Garden wedding hit all the wine country wedding goals we could come up with and we have a feeling you’re going to want to toast to this special occasion.

With Jose Villa (perfectly) capturing the event, Shannon Leahy Events heading up the planning, and Atelier Joya designing this Napa Valley wedding, it was easy for this couple to expect absolutely stunning wedding photos. Not only did they hire a dream team to ensure a gorgeous and timeless wedding, but they also chose to celebrate at one of wine country’s most beautiful private estates.
