Chateau Montelena, A Story to be Told

We are great fans of delicious wines and especially those that have a story to be told. Chateau Montelena has a story of excellence in wine, its history here in California, the United States and of course, in France in 1976 when Chateau Montelena’s 1973 Chardonnay put California wine on the “forefront of the wine world.”  2014 brings wine touring travel plans to @WineChics and that includes the California wineries of Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley.

As photographers, we have lived in California and photographed its landscape. We will add California wine, vineyard and viticulture photography to our portfolio and the bounty of wonderful wines to taste and enjoy! Chateau Montelena is a @WineChics favorite California wine and winery of renown and thus deserves our first feature. Come travel with us as we explore . . . Cheers!

    Great feature! Chateau Montelena is also one of my favourite places to visit and the wines are consistently exceptional. Your picture of the facade makes me jealous. I have attempted to capture the magic of the place and failed misaerably.

    George Taber’s book, The Judgement of Paris, surprised me on one point. The grapes used for the Chardonnay tasted at the Paris event were from Sonoma, not from the estate. Mike GrGich was the winemaker who went on to own his own outstanding winery & vineyard.
