F

amous for its Chardonnay, which won the Judgment of Paris in 1976 and starred in the campy docu-fiction movie “Bottle Shock,” the 1888 Chateau Montelena Winery features their full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, characterized by the unique earthy-berry flavor that is the Montelena Estate. Our decades old Zinfandel vines, planted in volcanic soil, combined with our 10 year old vines in alluvial soil, produce a wine with a
spicy, ripe berry flavor.

ROBERT MONDAVI WINERY


“Walking through To Kalon, admiring its contours and vines, smelling the richness of its soil, I knew this was a very special place. It exuded an indefinable quality I could not describe, a feeling that was almost mystical.”

Robert Mondavi

Robert Mondavi established his namesake winery in 1966 with a vision to create Napa Valley wines that would stand in the company of the world’s finest. He chose To Kalon Vineyard in the heart of the Napa Valley as the home for Robert Mondavi Winery. This first-growth vineyard, located in Oakville, California, is renowned for producing some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the world, as well as for its Sauvignon Blanc grapes, from which Mr. Mondavi crafted his signature wine, Fumé Blanc.

Along with To Kalon Vineyard, Robert Mondavi Winery sources grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards, including Stag’s Leap (Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc) and Carneros (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay).

Mr. Mondavi believed that wines should reflect their origins, that they are the product of the soil, the climate, and the careful stewardship of those precious resources. He also believed in combining the newest techniques and technology with time-honored winemaking traditions.

Our winemaking and vineyard teams are proud to carry on our founder’s mandate to always strive higher, to pursue Robert Mondavi’s goal of excellence with the same passion and innovative spirit, moving forward with programs that break barriers and open new frontiers.

CHATEAU MONTELENA ~ NAPA VALLEY

Chateau Montelena’s rich history began on a chilly fall morning when Alfred L. Tubbs spaded over and inspected the soil where he thought of planting estate vineyards. He had heard the Napa Valley was the best place to grow grapes in California. A deal was struck, and in January of 1882 the San Francisco entrepreneur owned 254 acres of rugged land just two miles north of Calistoga at the base of Mount Saint Helena. The soils are well drained, stony and loose – perfect for the vines he would plant.

It took less than a decade to turn his dream into reality. First Tubbs planted his
vineyards, then he built his Chateau, and in 1886 he imported a French-born
winemaker. By 1896 his winery, then called A.L. Tubbs Winery, was the seventh
largest in the Napa Valley. Like many other wineries in the area, winemaking at
the Chateau came to an end with Prohibition. After Prohibition was repealed in
1933, Tubbs’ grandson, Chapin Tubbs, continued the family’s venture harvesting
the vineyard, making some wines and selling grapes to other wineries and home
winemakers. In 1940, Chapin rechristened the winery as Chateau Montelena
Winery, a contraction of Mount St. Helena.

Two years after Chapin Tubbs’ death in 1947, winemaking was discontinued, and
Chateau Montelena would not function as a winery for nearly two decades. The
Tubbs family sold the Chateau in 1958, at which time the stone building and its
overgrown grounds passed into the hands of Yort and Jeanie Frank who were
looking for a peaceful spot to retire. The Franks emigrated from Hong Kong prior
to World War II and had been living in Southern California where Frank was an
electrical engineer. The Chateau inspired Frank to excavate a lake and
landscape the grounds to reflect the Chinese gardens of his homeland. Today,
Jade Lake is considered one of Napa Valley’s most beautiful sanctuaries, home
to a variety of fish and wildlife, and surrounded by weeping willows and native
fauna.

The next chapter began with the renaissance of Chateau Montelena Winery and
the Estate vineyard in the early 1970’s. Under the leadership of Jim Barrett, the
vineyard was cleared and replanted, and the Chateau outfitted with modern
winemaking equipment. He assembled a team to oversee the vineyard and
winemaking, then grew and contracted for the highest-quality grapes in the Napa Valley. In 1972 wines were made for the first time. Decades later, this celebrated
family-owned winery continues to thrive with Jim’s son Bo Barrett at the helm.
