Chateau Montelena is a must visit for wine lovers seeking excellence! It is one of the most peaceful settings in the Napa Valley; a stone castle in a hillside overlooking a Chinese garden, lake and vineyards reaching out to the base of Mount Saint Helena.
We pay homage to our heritage by innovating, not imitating. Chateau Montelena has a celebrated history, and the Judgment of Paris is just one chapter. Modern technology does not replace people or the art in winemaking but expands our creative potential. There are no formulas here. Careful consideration drives every project with the determination to build our future.
At Montelena, we question everything — convention, past methodologies, or how we can do something just a little bit better. With the freedom to explore, we have the privilege to learn. And by asking ourselves why, we can better understand the path to how. With a 14-decade legacy comes the responsibility for further growth and we refuse to rest on our laurels.
Open daily from 9:30am-4:00pm, visitation to the Montelena Estate is secured by advance reservation. For those unable to obtain a reservation, limited walk-in tasting experiences may be available on select dates on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-in availability changes daily and often requires a wait-time upon arrival. To inquire on the hours and availability of walk-ins for today’s date, call 707.942.5105 and select option 1, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you plan to visit with a group of eight or more, we encourage you to call or email email@example.com so our hospitality team can make suggestions to ensure your party has the best experience possible.
