San Francisco Week: Wine Tasting at Award-Winning Chateau Montelena

August 5, 2019

Chateau Montelena has been featured in a broadcast segment on regional Hawaii-based station Khon2 titled, “San Francisco Week: Wine Tasting at Award-Winning Chateau Montelena.” The feature highlights a wine tasting at Chateau Montelena as part of San Francisco Week as well as background on the winery. The reporters speak with Sheri Bowen, Hospitality and Retail Manager for the winery, who adds “We create wines that don’t follow the trend of typical California wines. We create our wines in old world style with new world fruit and the quality is always consistent. Chateau Montelena wines also truly stand the test of time and have incredible aging potential.” Bowen notes that most people are familiar with the winery’s Chardonnay, largely because of The Judgment of Paris, and their flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is Chateau Montelena’s flagship wine and a quality icon of Napa Valley. The winemaking team works obsessively and passionately with each vintage to capture the best expression of their historic terroir. This is a show-stopper that reveals the perfect blend of flavors, aromas and textures to reach the pinnacle of balance.

    A true icon. The Napa Valley Chardonnay is the wine that put Chateau Montelena and Napa Valley at the forefront of the wine world in 1976, in what is now memorialized as “The Judgment of Paris.” To great disbelief, the Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay was the top-ranking wine against four white Burgundies and five other California Chardonnays. And as they say, the rest is history.

    In 1976 Chateau Montelena put California at the forefront of the wine world. That year a who's-who of the French wine establishment gathered in Paris for a blind tasting of French and American wines. When the scores were tallied, the top-ranking white wine was Chateau Montelena's 1973 Chardonnay. Montelena today continues to be a quality benchmark in Napa Valley, producing some of the finest Cabernet and Chardonnay in California.
