    Taste of Montelena on 9/22/20

    Nice grounds, and very nice host. I wanted to purchase a bottle of Zinfandel but the one being sold was a different year than the one we tasted, so I inquired about it hoping I could have a taste, but none was offered.

    So wonderful even though it was pouring rain. The family history was the most interesting AND the Q&A time at the end was spot on. The wine was superb as well! Bravo!

    We visited over 12 wineries in Napa, Chateau Montelena just beat out all the competition--hands down number 1. There are many beautiful places in Napa but CM checks all the boxes. Great staff, best Chardonnay, best Cab, best Zin, fantastic grounds. Not gimmicky (ie Castello di Amorosa) not pretentious and mediocre (ie Rutherford Hill). CM is a must and only place I would consider a membership.

    Words cannot describe the beauty of Chateau Montelena. The tour was very informative - especially liked the way we had our tasting at different locations of the property. Was a beautiful day and beautiful setting-will definitely come back in the future! Also, loved meeting Carla, the owners dog!

    This was one of our favorite experiences while in Napa last week. Michelle was a great host and while pouring wonderful wines, showed us around the property and answered hundreds of questions. Very informative and a very beautiful place. Highly recommend a visit.

    The grounds and buildings are fabulous. The tour was not any more helpful than a self-guided tour. The wine making descriptions we’re lacking
