Chateau Montelena is an iconic Napa Winery winery located in Calistoga CA and known for producing high quality, classic/old world styled wines. Founded in 1882 and resurrected by Jim Barrett in 1972, Chateau Montelena first came to fame winning the Paris Tasting of 1976 (immortalized in the film Bottle Shock). The winery produces six wines, five of which will be featured in the seminar, including their Cabernet Sauvignon which has earned the pedigree to be called a first growth California wine. The seminar will be conducted by winery educators and include history, winemaking style and a sensory tasting five of the current releases.
