Langtry Estate gets honors from national press

 

MIDDLETOWN Langtry Estate & Vineyards pulled down some impressive accolades for its Lake County wines from prestigious national press in the last month, as Wine & Spirits Magazine named Langtry’s Guenoc brand one of the Top Value Brands of the Year, and Food & Wine Magazine picked the Guenoc Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon as one of its 25 Best Wines for Summer.


The cover story of the June issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine was the 100 Top Values of the Year, and the magazine’s editors selected Guenoc as one of 11 American wine brands that represent top value and “perform consistently well across a range of wines.”


Notably, Guenoc has significantly lower production volume than any of the other wine brands singled out for recognition. Wine & Spirits observed that Guenoc is noted for “crisp whites and cool-climate reds from a pioneer in Lake County…” They singled out the Guenoc Lake County Sauvignon Blanc and Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon as “standout” wines.


In the June issue of Food & Wine Magazine, senior editor Ray Isle wrote a feature article on the 25 Best Wines for Summer and focused in particular on wines $20 or less that go well with grilled foods. For pairing with steak and lamb, Isle recommended the Guenoc Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon as one of his five favorite picks. He also noted that Lake County was beginning to make a name for itself as a wine region and that Guenoc is one of the oldest wineries.


The history of the winery dates back to 1854 when winegrapes were first planted in the Guenoc Valley. Victorian actress Lillie Langtry owned the property from 1888 to 1906. Today, the property is owned by Hawaii-based Malulani Investments.


Langtry Estate & Vineyards has extensive vineyard holdings in Lake County and is the oldest and largest winegrower in the region. The picturesque estate consists of 21,349 acres and straddles Lake and Napa counties. Vineyards are limited to 449 prime acres.
