Bordeaux native Georges de Latour founded the third-oldest continuously operating winery in Napa Valley in 1900. With the help of legendary oenologist André Tchelistcheff, he produced world-class, award-winning wines that have been served at the White House since Franklin D. Roosevelt was at the helm. The brick-and-redwood tasting room isn't much to look at, but with Beaulieu's (Bowl-you) reputation, it has no need to visually impress. Tastings range in price from $15 to $35 and a number of bottles sell for under $20. The Reserve Tasting Room offers a taste of five reserve wines for $35 and bottles that cost upwards of $100.
