Beaulieu Vineyard, the Napa Valley vintner with 110 years of work in winemaking, will again be the featured wine of the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards Governors Ball. The event will be held on August 29, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles immediately following the Primetime Emmy telecast.
This is the seventh consecutive year BV wine has been featured at the Emmy celebrations. And for the fifth year, Beaulieu Vineyard will be the Official Wine Sponsor of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
“We pride ourselves on making the best wines in America. Since the first vintage in 1936, Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been poured for presidents and princes, and 70 years later we are delighted to toast the best of American talent with our 2006 vintage,” said Jeffrey Stambor, director of Winemaking for Beaulieu Vineyard.
“This is a tremendous honor for Beaulieu Vineyard and we are thrilled to pair our finest wines with Master Chef Joachim Splichal’s innovative and delicious menu.”
The 2008 Beaulieu Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay will join the 2006 Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon at the table and will be paired with Patina Catering Chef and Founder Joachim Splichal’s impressive menu for the Governors Ball, the official celebration following the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards telecast.
Designer Dwight Jackson relied on heavenly guidance with this year’s Governors Ball decor, using the sun, moon and stars as his muse. The Television Academy’s Governors Ball Committee and event producers at Sequoia Productions have added lavish elements for the guests’ enjoyment, including over-the-moon wine tasting bars.
In addition to the wines selected to be poured with the meal, strolling wine lovers can sample a range of heavenly, limited edition Beaulieu Vineyard wines, several of which are available only at the Napa winery.
BV Georges de Latour was the first private reserve Cabernet produced in America and has been a benchmark in California winemaking since the first vintage in 1936. Named for the winery founder, it is stated to be the most prestigious wine produced by Beaulieu Vineyard.
The 2006 vintage marks the 70th year that this premier American reserve wine has been produced.
Beaulieu Vineyard, established in 1900, is a Napa Valley winery. It was founded by French immigrant, Georges de Latour.
