~ Chateau Montelena ~

 

Famous 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.
