Technical Info

Estate

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'd 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 vine cuttings he would plant

Wine

The Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in one of the world's most remarkable winegrowing properties. The site's diversity of soils and slopes translates directly into the layers of complex flavors in this flagship wine.

Vinification

Chateau Montelena's Estate Caberneth Sauvignon is made up of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Petit Verdot. The wine is aged in 100% French oak barrels (30% new) for 22 months.
